Chautauqua Lake Bigfoot writes President Obama requesting Protected Species Status [Press Release]
Peter Wiemer, from the Chautauqua Lake, NY Bigfoot Weekend & Expo announced that in a letter he wrote to President Barack Obama on February 15th that he requested protected species status for Bigfoots / Sasquatches in the USA.
In a letter written to garner National protection, Peter requested from President Obama to consider the recent DNA study claiming Bigfoots are part human and part ape, an indigenous species of America that should be protected prior to being killed by Sport as allowed in Texas. With all of the Bigfoot sightings in Hawaii over the years as well as over 100 in New York State should be of no surprise to the President to receive this kind of request. It really is up to each state to decide on which species are protected but here, it is probably part man, which should garner National Protection as it would onto any man or women in the USA. There has been no response from President Obama as of yet.
Previously, Peter wrote the NYS Department of Environmental Conservation (D.E.C.) Commissioner in July, 2012 requesting the same, where the Chief Wildlife Biologist from the NYS DEC wrote back on the Commissioner’s behalf that in so many words, Bigfoots are Mythical and do not exist anywhere in the World.
“When I created the CLBF Weekend & Expo, I had no idea I would be eventually asking anyone, let alone President Obama to consider protecting Bigfoots. After hearing from local eyewitnesses and seeing there are over 100 other documented sightings in New York State, I became a Believer”… The first documented sighting of a Bigfoot in the USA was in Sackets Harbor, NY in a newspaper article in 1818 and can be seen on the 12 minute video trailer at our ChautauquaLakeBigfoot.com website.
New York State is the third most populated State in the USA with Chautauqua County and Chautauqua Lake, NY being within a four-hour drive of more then 15 million people from Cleveland to Pittsburgh to Syracuse and to Toronto & Niagara Falls, Canada.
