A bill to “designating Sasquatch the official cryptid or crypto-animal of Washington” is back in front of Washington State Legislators, after not getting too far thru the process during the last legislative session.
As of today, Senate Bill (SB) 5816 has been referred to State Government, Tribal Relations & Elections, with no dates or next actions beyond that currently set. The bill looks to make Sasquatch WA State’s cryptid, sighting the following as a reason:
The legislature recognizes that Sasquatch has made immeasurable contributions to Washington state’s cultural heritage and ecosystem. The state of Washington further recognizes the importance of preserving the legacy of Sasquatch.

Anne Rivers of the 18th District was inspired to file the bill after receiving a letter from a child in her district.

Arletta VanHoof,….1983 Enumclaw, Wa. My best friend and I just got out of the movies( don’t ask me what movie we saw cause that is just a blur! We were 15 yrs old and my friends brother was supposed to pick us up, but he never showed. She lived fairly close so we decided to walk home! We had a flashlight,so wth, we started walking down the road, (surrounded by trees) . Suddenly out of nowhere the beast is running full bore at us! We knew what it was, my friend threw the flashlight at me and we both ran until we got back to the theater! We both looked at each other and knew what we had seen! We kept asking each other if it was for real and no doubt that sucker had my heart on overload . That pounding from that fight or flight reaction had me hardly able to breathe! I know that hairy beast is alive and real!
