NC Cops Say 'Don't Shoot Bigfoot'

NC Cops Say 'Don't Shoot Bigfoot'

On the heels of a headline-making Bigfoot sighting over the weekend, police in North Carolina are cautioning residents that they should not shoot the creature if they encounter it.

In a posting to their Facebook page on Tuesday, the Greenville Police Department expressed concern that a tragic mishap could occur should someone think they have spotted a Bigfoot and decide to take a shot at it.

"I think we can say with some confidence that proof of Bigfoot still eludes us," the message from police says, "if you see Bigfoot, please do not shoot at him/her, as you'll most likely be wounding a fun-loving and well-intentioned person, sweating in a gorilla costume."

Whether someone lurking in the wilderness of North Carolina attempting to impersonate a Bigfoot qualifies as 'well-intentioned' is debatable, the sentiment of the police warning is sound, since shooting a suspected Sasquatch is almost certainly a terrible idea.
