Here at the Blahg, it’s all about protecting species and natural resources. So when there is news around the interpipes of others seeking to do the same, that is something worth pointing out for commendation. So it is with great pride that today’s conservation and protection shout-out goes to Canadian parliament member Mike Lake for his introducing a petition to protect Bigfoot under the Canadian equivalent of our endangered species act.
Lake presented to the House of Commons a petition that stated, “The debate over (Bigfoot’s) existence is moot in the circumstance of their tenuous hold on merely existing. Therefore, the petitioners request the House of Commons to establish immediate, comprehensive legislation to affect immediate protection of Bigfoot.”
The man behind the petition was a Bigfoot enthusiast named Todd Standing, who claims to have definitive proof of Bigfoot but is withholding it until protection for the alleged animals is in place. “When I get species protection for them nationwide, I will make my findings public and I will take this out of the realm of mythology. Bigfoot is real,” Standing said.
The petition soon became an embarrassment for Lake, who later issued a press release stating that the proposal had been tabled.
Ahhhh, tabled already. So Bigfoot might not yet have protection. That means if you get a good sighting of him/her/it, you should take the shot now. Sometime in the future, Bigfoot will be protected meat.
