We have been sharing the same backyard for over a century and we believe it’s time to do what has never been done, and that is to offer a one million dollar reward to anyone who can ensure the safe capture of Bigfoot. When we say safe capture that means Bigfoot has to be alive and breathing folks, with no wounds. That’s right you can’t use any act of violence, no guns/knives/boxing gloves/nets/etc, only sugar or sweets to lure him in.
You must register to participate in the search. To report your discovery of irrefutable evidence of the existence of Bigfoot, click on the “Submit Capture Report” link on the left and follow the instructions to report your evidence.
Official rules state that if you find “irrefutable evidence” of Bigfoot’s existence in compliance with the contest’s Official Rules, you could win $1 million dollars. You must submit a capture report and then “the next steps will be determined by the Sponsor and/or a representative of same and/or the Judging Panel depending on the quality and type of evidence presented.” There is a panel of judges that will be reviewing the evidence. Evidence can be from any time between January 1, 1989 through March 31, 2014 when the contest ends. So, an old body qualifies.
There was another million dollar challenge to find Bigfoot for a TV show. This looks more straightforward.
You explicitly can not kill it. They will call the police if you do.
What is acceptable evidence? Take a look at the rules:
“Bigfoot” refers to a previously undiscovered species of upright, bipedal hominid, native to North America existing contemporaneously with the Contest Period or the twenty-five (25) year period immediately prior to the Contest Period. There is no set type or amount of evidence required to establish proof for purposes of this Contest other than that all evidence presented must satisfy the Judging Panel. Evidence may include, but is not limited to DNA Evidence. DNA Evidence may include hair, blood, tissue or saliva that proves the DNA sequence of the donor shows that said donor resides in the primate evolutionary family tree, among other apes or hominids, but does not have the same genetic markers and DNA sequence as any known species. Evidence may also include “Visual Proof” of a live physical body. Physical remains may be considered as evidence provided that it can be conclusively demonstrated that the date of death pre-dated the Contest Period. Visual Proof shall not include footprints, bone fragments, inconclusive skeletal remains, or any other non-definitive evidence of the existence of Bigfoot. Any photo or video taken with photographic or video equipment is not sufficient to qualify as evidence in and of itself for consideration in the Contest, but may be considered as supporting evidence.
I like that the beast must be an evolutionarily sound animal. So, Melba’s finding doesn’t qualify. Sneaky.
Can’t wait to see the results. There are already sightings (not captures) reported on the map. Take a look. Snoqualmie here I come!
