...that is the question.
It has been a long standing controversy in the crypto community..... Do we continue to set laws in place to ensure the safety of creatures we've yet to scientifically identify?
I say continue because there are already several governing bodies that have done just that.
Back in 1969, Skamania County's Board of Commissioners in Washington passed an ordinance making it a $10,000 fine and five years in prison for anyone who kills a Bigfoot in their county.
In Arkansas,the senate passed a resolution in 1973 that protected the habitat of "Whitey",a well known water monster who made a portion of the White River its home.
Loren Coleman writes:
"In Malaysia, the breaking news on April 22, 2006, from the New Straits Times is that “the Johor Government has announced total protection for the Bigfoot, as a State heritage, which cannot be injured, captured, transported out of the State or killed.”--Cryptomundo,April 22,2006 http://www.cryptomundo.com/cryptozoo-news/spin-yeti/
It is'nt too hard to imagine the chaos that will ensue once these creatures are finally"proven to exist."
Bubba and his entourage will undoubtedly be taking potshots at our hairy hominid friend, from the tailgate of a Chevy pickup, before you can even utter the words " If rabbits feet are so dang lucky, what happened to the rabbit?".
Something needs to be done before the situation gets that out of control. Would'nt you agree?
Waiting til the last minute when things finally go "ape" is'nt exactly what I'd call a great policy.
We know we are on the brink of the discovery of the century...nay,the millenia.
Would'nt it be nice to have nationwide laws in place before such occurences become the norm instead of just the imaginable unimagineable?
Not that it is'nt a great scam to keep us all thinking we're crazy,thereby keeping a seven foot tall,600 pound creature a secret (hey,I'll give credit where credit is due! ) ....but it's not going to work forever,fellas.
We're not a bunch of witless dolts that'll buy anything our "leaders" feed us and move on quietly without incidence. Too many credible witnesses are testament to the fact that we are about to embark on a journey our world may not be prepared for if we have'nt got some kind of plan of action in place beforehand.
You can only hold the lid down on a boiling pot for so long. Eventually you'll have to take it off the heat,turn down the temperature,or pay the price when you get scalded from the lid being violently blown off.
It's a recipe for disaster.
