Sasquatch Declared 'Official Animal' of NY Village

A community in upstate New York with a history of Bigfoot sightings has  declared the cryptid their 'official animal.' The village of Whitehall  has long been associated with Sasquatch thanks to a prominent 1976  sighting that led to numerous people coming forward to also say that  they had seen the creature. Since that time, Bigfoot has become  something of a mascot for the town with several statues of the creature placed throughout the community as well as an annual road race and festival centered around the Sasquatch theme.

And now administrators in the village have taken things even further by  recognizing Bigfoot as Whitehall's official animal. The resolution  passed unanimously late last month with one voting member of the village  board musing to a local newspaper that "it can't hurt." Along with the 'official animal' designation, the  bill also declared that the last Saturday of September shall be  henceforth known as 'Sasquatch Appreciation Day.' Remarkably, this is  not the first time that Sasquatch has been the subject of official town  business as administrators had previously passed a law declaring the  creature an endangered species.
