Skamania County WA Bigfoot Ordinance

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 16th, 2005

Following is the previously mentioned ordinance from Skamania County, Washington along with the amendment. 

Skamania County Ordinance

Ordinance No. 69-01

Be it hereby ordained by the Board of County Commissioners of Skamania County:

Whereas, there is evidence to indicate the possible existence in Skamania County of a nocturnal primate mammal variously described as an ape-like creature or a sub-species of Homo Sapiens; and

Whereas, both legend and purported recent sightings and spoor support this possibility, and

Whereas, this creature is generally and commonly known as a "Sasquatch", "Yeti", "Bigfoot", or "Giant Hairy ape", and has resulted in an influx of scientific investigators as well as casual hunters, many armed with lethal weapons, and

Whereas, the absence of specific laws covering the taking of specimens encourages laxity in the use of firearms and other deadly devices and poses a clear and present threat to the safety and well-being of persons living or traveling within the boundaries of Skamania County as well as to the creatures themselves,

Therefore be it resolved that any premeditated, wilful and wanton slaying of such creature shall be deemed a felony punishable by a fine not to exceed Ten Thousand Dollars ($10,000) and/or imprisonment in the county jail for a period not to exceed Five (5) years.

Be it further resolved that the situation existing constitutes an emergency and as such this ordinance is effective immediately.

ADOPTED this 1st day of April, 1969.

The above ordinance was partially repealed and amended in 1984 by Ordinance 1984-2:

The ordinance was amended to make the crime a gross misdemeanor, punishable by up to one year in the county jail and/or a $1000 fine.

The new ordinance also created a million-acre refuge within the County.

    Whatcomb County in Washington state has an ordinance too, I can dig it up to post if folks want, or just send it to you Craig.

    It stipulates, “no harrassment” to me a incredibly vague statement, “no killing”, and one other that’s not coming to mind.

    I had them make me a copy at the County Courthouse.

  2. Craig Woolheater responds:

    Tim,
    I never knew about the Whatcomb County ordinance. Go ahead and send it on and I will post it for all to see.

    Thanks
