Washington Department of Transportation Tweets About a “Possible Sasquatch Sighting”

People believe all sorts of things all over the world, and honestly, as long as they’re not hurting anyone else with their belief, I’m cool with all of it.

When it comes to Bigfoot, even most scientists would have to shrug and say it’s possible. We live on a big planet, so the idea that there are still undiscovered species is a pretty common one.

Is it likely. No, but it doesn’t mean it’s impossible.


That said, it can be a little arresting when someone in an “official” capacity says something about Sasquatch that seems to assume its reality.

Of course, when your state has been a hotbed of Bigfoot sightings since forever, maybe you’re justified in making just a few assumptions!

Ryan Overton, a communications consultant for the WSDOT, tweeted out the following…

K5 News reports that webcam footage run by the Department of Transportation captured a Sasquatch-esque figure, prompting the government to post signs warning of the possible sightings.

The WSDOT Twitter account shared still shots from the streaming footage along with the caption,

“Have you noticed something strange on our Sherman Pass/SR 20 webcam before?

If you look closely by the tree on the left there looks to me something … might be Sasquatch …

We will leave that up to you!”

The stills do seem to show a dark figure hovering by the trees near the highway, and another of him striding across the wildlife crossing on I-90.

Is it Sasquatch? Has he been in Washington state all along? Is is a very tall someone just bundled up against the cold?

Well… it’s actually just a plywood cutout.

Seattle Times has more…

Normally, Overton checks the highway webcam images for anything that seems newsworthy, like maybe 40 inches of snow at the pass.

But he couldn’t resist the image of the Sasquatch cutout, which has long been a part of the terrain.

Usually, the cardboard cutout is not easily captured by the highway camera because of poor lighting, he says.

Btw, did you know it has been illegal to kill Bigfood in Washington State since 1969? If busted, you could spend up to five years in prison.

Which, idk. Might be worth it?
