Claudia Ackley is positive she and her two daughters saw Bigfoot in a southern California tree last year, but when she called several state authorities to report the sighting, she got the same response.
It was a bear. As a result, the 46-year-old has sued the state for failing to recognize Sasquatch as a distinct species. “He looked like a Neanderthal man with hair all over him,” insists Ackley, who says this is the second Bigfoot sighting she’s had.
Among other things, the lawsuit says the state is endangering the public by not recognizing Bigfoot and calls on it to “‘manage this wildlife species” and protect its habitat.
In the meantime, Ackley leaves fruit and snacks out, plus a voice-activated book that includes recordings of words like “fur” and “candy,” and samples of each, in an attempt to communicate.
