However, the president will not be forced to broach the issue unless the signature tally, which right now stands at a few dozen, gains some steam. The petition reads:
The cryptid known as Bigfoot should be here on out recognized as an endangered species by the Obama administration and the United States of America. Bigfoot also known as the “Sasquatch or Yeti” is in danger of becoming extinct.
We the people petition the Obama administration to recognize “Bigfoot” or “Sasquatch” as an American species of animal. We plea with the Obama administration to recognize Bigfoot or Sasquatch as an American species of animal as soon as possible and put it on the endangered species list.
Research is an ongoing effort in the field of studying this creature, and one day it will be discovered and shown to the American public. Please join our effort in recognizing this creature as an endangered species that needs to be saved!
