PETA to Bigfoot Hunters: You Shouldn't 'Shoot and Kill It' Just Because You Can

The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) are certain about one thing, even though they do not acknowledge that Bigfoot is real: It is just as unethical to kill a Sasquatch as it would be any other animal. In a report posted by the CBS Houston on Jan. 30, the animal rights activists reacted to the idea much as expected, because to members of their organization, shooting and killing a living creature, whether it be for food or sport, is an atrocity.

PETA spokesperson Lindsay Rajt told The Houston Chronicle: “As an organization we do oppose hunting of any kind. It’s cruel and unnecessary and can damage populations and ecosystems.”

Rajt spoke out against the shooting of the legendary Bigfoot creature in the wake of news that self-proclaimed "Master Tracker" Rick Dyer is going on the road to show of the Bigfoot he supposedly shot and killed outside San Antonio, Texas, in late 2012. Dyer says he will tour North America, carting the Sasquatch carcass from town to town to prove that Bigfoot does exist and that he actually killed one.

Dyer has already released several photos of the hairy beast he claims to have killed. Although many are putting it down as just another hoax, Dyer says it is his redemption (Dyer is most famous for having a hand in the 2008 Georgia Bigfoot Hoax) and has even challenged the Spike TV series "The 10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" to pay up.

“The bottom line is, when someone sees a rare, exotic animal their first instinct shouldn’t be to shoot and kill it,” Rajt said . “Just because you see something pretty, that doesn’t mean it should be mounted on your wall.”

PETA: “As an organization we do oppose hunting of any kind. It’s cruel and unnecessary and can damage populations and ecosystems.”

Wrong. Hunting is what keeps modern wildlife populations and ecosystems properly balanced.

PS, I wouldn't shoot a Bigfoot either, unless it was attacking me.

“What about unicorns?”

They’re in every liberal’s place. If they believed in this dipsh*t hopeychangey BS, then unicorns won’t be a stretch.

Sasquatch is an animal? I thought they were a species very much like Homo sapiens, except they were more attuned to their environment,

In fact, I had thought they had intermarried with some of the old hippie communes, and their children were up and coming community organizers.

Comeon! That bastard has been harassing my family and me for years. Ever since my first grainy picture, I've been trying to nail this SOB. I go after him on FreeRepublic and he hits Report Abuse. Next thing I know I've been suspended. Facebook? Forget about it. Twitter? I have had to apologize and resign my job. I will now slip into my Ghillies suit and wait. Your ass is mine and your steaks are my family's. When that blurry head turns around, I will be there.

You know that a lefty organization needs attention when they’re commenting on something as stupid as this. Gees, It never crossed my mind that if I ran into “Bigfoot” that it would be unethical to shoot it, him, or whatever gender the beast is. Lord, we’re a sorry people if this is an actual issue.

“I gonna hold out and just wait for my opportunity to shoot a two-fer.”

She-Who-Must-Be-Obeyed probably won’t let you take either one to the taxidermist.

Just a guess, though.

You might want to re-think shooting at ETs for your own sake. Since any ET here would have mastered inter-planetary space travel, they are going to have a major technology advantage over you. Don't tick them off.

Shooting a Bigfoot and having scientists look the thing over might be the best way to save them. Still, I don’t think we need to worry—as Bigfoot is one of three things:
1. A myth-—or-—mistaken men and bears.
2. A creature from a UFO or Other Demention.
3. A highly evolved human offshoot with psychic powers—who can control men’s minds—so they will never be caught or shot.

I don’t think is related to humans, I think that Bigfoot is a living example of a thought to be extinct gigantic ape. Did you know that there once existed a gigantic ape, Gigantopithecus, that stood some 10 feet tall? Scientists debate on whether it was bipedal or walked on its knuckles as gorillas do today.

http://www.livescience.com/467-gigantic-apes-coexisted-early-humans-study-finds.html

It lived in Asia and could have used the same land bridge that the ancestors of American Indians used to cross into North America. “Mainstream scientists” believe that the giant ape species died out some 100,000 years ago. Just as they once believed that the coelacanth, a five foot long primitive fish, died out 60 million years ago, until it was discovered to be still living in 1938.

Backwoods Engineer to PETA: God told me I can kill and eat animals. I do so, and give thanks as I eat them. Tasty.
Don’t like it? Take it up with God.

PETA can bite my shiny metal ass.

I have a tag for a Big FOOT or a Big feet or what ever.

Last week I shot a Unicorn but it was catch and release.

I was downtown Portland but don’t make me splain.
