Forest Service Squashes Fake 'Sasquatch Warning'

The U.S. Forest Service was forced to issue a statement on Monday assuring the public that Bigfoot is not running amok in  Montana. The bizarre announcement came about after images of a  cleverly-crafted 'Sasquatch Warning,' designed to look like they were  produced by the agency, began circulating online in recent days. The  notices claimed that, "due to the increasing flows in the Yaak River,  Sasquatches are coming down from the high country to feed on fish and  vegetation at the river's edge."

The faux flyers went on to warn visitors to the Kootenai National Forest  in Montana that they were at risk of possibly encountering Sasquatch.  Should such an event occur, the 'agency' advised that witnesses neither  yell at nor feed the creature and, confusingly, that they should not  chase the Sasquatch nor run away, leaving one to wonder what, exactly,  they should do. Thanks to the prominent placement of the U.S. Forest  Service logo on the flyers, it would appear that they managed to fool a  lot of people into believing that they were genuine.

And so, faced with the prospect of Sasquatch hunters flocking to the  forest while prospective tourists changed their vacation plans to avoid  the animal, the U.S. Forest Service took to social media on Monday to  provide some clarity on the situation.
