I went to a Roseburg Forest Products meeting just last year. We had a speaker from BLM address the endangered species act. She said that BLM and the USFS has made closure samples in the event this Bigfoot thing comes to light as I believe it will very soon.
It was scary what she said about the amount of public and private land that would be closed to logging and some recreation. It would effectively shut down all of the pacific northwest because they would be on the endangered list in a heartbeat if the population is guessed under 7,000.
Nobody in their right mind would want this. This is the main reason government doesn't want Bigfoot to be designated as real. Some would say we can live together without all the protection but it doesn't work that way.
Remember the spotted owl and marble murrelet? Just think what a small number of 600 to 1,000 pound primates would do for our economy. Anyone wanna guess?
Thank you for the comment. It is good that the BLM and Forest Service is talking about what will happen when bigfoot is proclaimed "real." ... Linda Newton-Perry
