Take heart, Bigfoot believers: ABC30 reports that Claudia Ackley is suing the state of California because state authorities didn’t believe her when she and her two daughters saw a Bigfoot on a remote trail near Lake Arrowhead in Southern California last year (tinyurl.com/sue4bigfoot). Ackley is pictured, courtesy of ABC30.
When she called 911 to report the sighting, she was told it was a bear. Not so, Ackley says. “I know what I saw,” she declared. The Bigfoot, perched about 30 feet up a tree, weighed about 800 pounds and “looked like a Neanderthal man with a lot of hair.” Two other Sasquatches were nearby. None of the creatures made any move to harm the Ackley family, but they were terrified, nonetheless.
Consequently, Ackley is bringing the lawsuit because the state and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife are refusing to recognize the Bigfoot species, and she believes it’s a danger to the public not to officially acknowledge their existence. “There’s a lot of people that come on this trail,” she told ABC30, “and I want public safety more than anything.”
The case goes to court March 19 in San Bernardino. Stay tuned.
