The Bureau of Land Management in Oregon & Washington has released this video titled “Bigfoot and the BLM.” In it, people, who I assume to be BLM staff, are asked about their belief in Bigfoot and the narrator gives handy tips about where to go looking for the mysterious creature.
Is this all just a bit of silliness at taxpayer expense? A cheap publicity stunt? Maybe. Maybe not. As Matt Moneymaker, president of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Association pointed out on his Twitter account, “Hmmm…The locations mentioned by this BLM Oregon dude all happen to be active Bigfoot areas. . .coincidence??”

The BLM video:
An obvious tourism ploy! And you know what? I’m not amused.
The BLM does not necessarily believe in the existence of Bigfoot. However, if you’re looking for proof you might try one of the outstanding BLM recreation sites spread throughout Oregon and Washington.
