Federal Government Fines Man For Hunting Bigfoot Without A Permit

Federal Government Fines Man For Hunting Bigfoot Without A Permit

Park rangers fined a bigfoot researcher and influential member of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization $525 for failing to obtain a permit to hunt the "elusive creature."

A man hunting Bigfoot has been fined $525 for failing to obtain a permit.

Matt Pruitt, a Bigfoot researcher and influential member of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), was leading a group through the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas when he and his 31 comrades were stopped by park rangers. The park rangers looked up Pruitt on the BFRO website and determined that he was conducting a business venture, so he needed a permit.

Karen Bradford, chief ranger at Buffalo National River Park and one of the rangers who cited Pruitt seems to be unclear as to the real reason behind the citation. She told FOX News: “He was given money by people to lead them on an expedition. When you complete any sort of transaction you become a concessionaire and need the proper permit.”

The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette quoted Bradford as saying: “We are in this to protect our resources. If he’s got people running around in the park, who knows what they’re doing looking for this elusive creature.”

Bradford told FOX News: “It’s highly unlikely that he would have gotten a permit if he applied for one. It’s not normal practice to issue them for expeditions to find Bigfoot.”

    If this isn’t another prime example of how ridiculous things have become. A group of people are out looking for Bigfoot and **zippity-do-da** you have to have a permit to do so. “It’s highly unlikely he would have gotten a permit if he applied for one.” SAY WHAT? Oh good Lord, idiocy at it’s best. What’s next? Are they going to illustriously fine Boy Scout troops, Girl Scout troops or any group of people that happen to be in that park just walking around looking for different things? Environmentalists beware, you could be targeted next! If this isn’t a true absurdity what isn’t? Hmmm, well Karen Bradford, if you come across a Bigfoot, how much you gonna fine him or her for? Makes about the same amount of sense, now doesn’t it.

      “Matt Pruitt, a Bigfoot researcher and influential member of the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization (BFRO), was leading a group through the Buffalo National River Park in Arkansas when he and his 31 comrades were stopped by park rangers.”

      I have lived in Arkansas most of my life and do not recall ever hearing about a “bigfoot” in the Buffalo River area or anywhere else in the Ozark Mountains for that matter.

      • FreedomFighter

        Im going to mount an expedition to get the Easter Bunny, wonder if I need a permit?

        OH PLEASE FF, I WANNA GO, I WANNA GO. . . :) LOL!!!

  • TIME

    Get ready as this is only the point of a very small pin. Soon you will need a Permit to have SEX. Or even a permit to buy food, cloths, by the way you will be told what food and cloths you can buy thats if your even lucky enough to be able to buy such items.

    You can thank not only the Health Care Reform Act for what soon will be the vast new law system, but also the all the Ignorant fools who have been used to create this New Nazi like state..

    If the Ruling comes back from the SC that the HCRA is legal then within just a few years if it even takes that long or if we even still exist as a nation all of what I just noted will be the LAW of the Land.
    What is the main goal of Agenda 21, when you can answer that question all of the noted issues will stand on their own legs.
    Again the answers are all there hidden in plain sight, all one need do is just take off the blinders and use your gray matter.

      Time:

      The permit to buy food, etc. is called a ration card. I’ve already heard some comments about it coming. After all, the government wants to make sure you are eating healthy, right?

    • David169

      I believe you have hit on the key to it all. The “permit” to buy food and clothing will be coming. I believe it is called the “Mark of the beast” or 666.
      I’d sure like to see Nero with his head shaved.

      • brianS

        David, you are right, but they already have all the information on everyone via, internet,mobile phones, credit cards etc etc. Soon we will need a permit to travel (and by the way, this is closer than you think) and have to marry whom they say etc etc. People laugh but it is going to happen. Complete control of every citizen. They are already trying to take the guns.

      • Joe H

        David169,
        I got some news for you. There are more than a few people, myself included< that will die before we take THAT mark!

    • afdbghq

      Yes a permit will soon be required for everything even for having kids. You see it will be a big burden on the health care system and/or the educational system if someone has a child with any physical or mental problems. Therefore every couple who want to have children will have to undergo an in-depth physical and DNA screening. Anyone the government determines may have a chance for physical or mental shortfalls in their offspring will be denied a permit to have a child. All for the good of the collective of course. Oh, this has been done before. Does Hitler ring a bell? Of course the elites will be exempt from all the rules because the rules are for the common folk (workers). Oh, I forgot, this is already happening. The group is called the federal government (Senators, Representatives, Department Heads, the president, etc.).

    • 45caliber

      Laws are supposed to be enacted to protect you from the aggressions or stupid actions of others.

      However, the government wants to protect you from your own stupid actions. So they enacted the “Seat Belt Law”. This requires you to wear a seat belt for your own protection.

      How many of you protested that? I did by sending a letter to my Congressman and Senators. Not that it did any good.

      But if they have the RIGHT to save you from your own stupidity by making you wear a seat belt, they also have the right to save you from all your other possible mistakes. Mistakes like taking the wrong job. Mistakes like living in the wrong place. Mistakes like going to the wrong places. Mistakes like marrying the wrong person and having kids with that person.

      See what a little ignorance or ignoring of a simple law can result in?

  • angelwannabe

    Government’s view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
    Ronald Reagan

    …I’ll add_tax it or fine it, even if the entity exists or not!

  • hooder

    Wow! Idiotic government intervention at it’s worse.

  • http://www.cindynel.co.za peter

    This has got to be an April fool’s joke. A licence to hunt a non existent creature? Do we now need a licence to look for missing people too? If he caught Big Foot would he be a hero and have his fine rescinded? By all accounts this creature has had anough time and has enough power to destroy the natural resources himself and does not need any assistance from a few hapless hunters at all. Let them be, he would probably eat them all in one month.

    • http://www.ifonlyphotos.com Alex Frazier

      “A licence to hunt a non existent creature?” should be, “A licence to hunt an unsubstantiated species?” The lack of evidence is not evidence of non-existence. When someone one day finds what everyone has been looking for in the Pacific Northwest and determines that it was merely an undiscovered breed of gorilla, then we can put it to rest once and for all. Until then, it’s always possible that it exists.

      • Grumpyolman

        I’ve been preaching that message for a long time. And the actual phrase (which I was having a hard time remembering when I typed the other post) is: “The absence of evidence is not the evidence of absence.”

      You laugh but, oil companies are being fined for not putting a nonexistent addetive into their gas. And of course any fines are added to the price of the gas.

    • Robert Smith

      Missed teh point, Peter: “A licence to hunt a non existent creature? ”

      The point is CHARGE MONEY to run a tour to find Bigfoot. IOW the guy was running a BUSINESS. If taxpayers are supporting the land where he runs his business why aren’t we entitled to some remuneration for that?

      Or, is it just another way to get money out of my pocket into the pocket of a business?

    Oh, Lord, what people won’t do next! LOL!

    So you need a permit to hunt a mythical being. And since it is mythical, you can’t get a permit in the first place! I’ve heard it all now!

    • Sirian

      Now just try to imagine how much they would fine Bigfoot if it set up a lemonade stand and was selling to little Brownies. . . go figure – LOL!!!

  • Chester

    Actually, you need a permit to be paid to lead any sort of excursion through a national park, not only ones seeking the quasi mythical creature we call big foot.

  • John

    It never ceases to amaze me how daft people become when their civilisation crumbles. It is one thing to read about it in relation to other civilisations throughout history. It’s a whole other matter to experience it first hand.

    • steve in AZ

      Sorry,John. People don’t “become daft when their civilization crumbles”. Civilization crumbles when people become daft. Actually, BECAUSE people ARE daft. Seemingly small point, but let’s try to keep it real,eh?

  • Robert S

    No, he got charged because he was making MONEY! She saw that he was charging people to follow him in the park, so she, being a GOOD government shrew, decided that the government should get their cut, therefore he got FINED the $525, as their CUT of his “take” of his fees off his “followers”. Simple! As for the “business license”, which she would never issue, that is another wild goose chase, up a government agency with no intelligent oversight. If she had not seen on his web sight that he charged for his services, there probably would not have been a problem…..read…..no money, no profit, no ticket. But then I’m just guessing, which with the government is all you can do until after the fact!

  • Mad Dog

    I was arrested and fined for conducting a religious ceremony on public property (an Easter Egg Hung); and impersonating a Religious figurehead (the Easter Bunny); and Hunting (eggs) without a permit; and littering the public property (with plastic eggs); and soliciting money for this service (to cover the plastic eggs, candy and coins); and illegal use of US currency in a fashion not intended by the Department of Commerce.

    Okay – none of that’s true – but it makes about as much sense as a Bigfoot fine.

    • steve

      i might have a better, some what eccentric, comment. i have it from an inside source tht d.c. is working on a bill to tax the 90 % of our brain we don’t use & call it the “brain drain” tax. because it can’t be depreciated properly it’s hung up in conference, primarily over determining whether that’s the proper name for the tax., at this time,

  • chris

    Do we need a permit to hunt down stupid people in our government and place them in an asylum for viewing?

    • steve in AZ

      No hunting necessary,sir. Just glance in any direction. :)

    Hi!, All Ye BigFoot Chasers Et Al:

    The next thing we know we’ll be fined wondering around parks trying to find their pay toilets before we either crap our pants; pee our pants or both? BigFoot chasers beware lest you stray too far afield outside the confines of the Park boundaries where do you need your BigFoot chasing permits or not? We’d kinda like to know in advance, prior to being fined wouldn’t we? Give us a break because we have some small portion of a pea sized brain too don’t we?

    RUSS SMITH, CALIFORNIA

    • Joe H

      Russ,
      At least we know it wouldn’t be a pay toilet as that would be a service for a fee and THAT could lead to a fine!!!! Whata crock!!!

  • skippy

    what a bunch of CRAP.

  • Why

    Either he was conducting a business venture or he was not. Would be interesting to know how the magistrate ruled. This issue of “hunting big foot” is a red herring.

  • jopa

    Fox news got it all wrong again and missed the real story.The group doing the Bigfoot search were all riding unicorns that just urinated in the fountain of youth thereby causing an environmental incident.This type of behavior must be stopped immediately and the people of Arkansas should pump up the tires on their homes and surround the park right now in protest.

NEXT THING YOU KNOW, CHILDREN WILL HAVE TO BUY PERMITS TO HAVE IMAGINARY ADVENTURES WITH BARNEY, KERMIT, & DORA, WHO ARE ALL ABOUT AS REAL AS BIGFOOT. LEAVE THESE PEOPLE ALONE, THEY’RE NOT HURTING ANYBODY LOOKING FOR AN IMAGINARY CREATURE. THIS GUY CERTAINLY DOESN’T DESERVE TO BE FINED FOR IT. HE OBVIOUSLY HAS A JOB (THAT HE HIMSELF CREATED) & IS JUST TRYING TO PUT FOOD ON HIS FAMILY’S TABLE & A ROOF OVER THEIR HEADS. WHICH, I MIGHT ADD, IS NO SMALL FEAT THESE DAYS UNDER THIS CURRENT JOB KILLING, OVER- REGULATING ADMINISTRATION. JUST ONE MORE PRIME EXAMPLE OF GOVERNMENT USING LAW ENFORCEMENT AS MUSCLE TO INSURE THAT STUPIDITY PREVAILS & EXTORTED INCOME IS ASSURED, ONLY FOR THE IDIOTS TO WASTE ON SOMETHING IGNORANT LIKE MORE CONTROL OVER US….JEEZ !!!!!!!

      Nothing was said about them being armed. If they were I can guarantee you that all would have been in jail with massive fines, etc. So they were LOOKING for the Big Foot, not hunting one with rifles.

    How predictable of Uncle Scam. In effect, if this administration didn’t have its collective head rammed up into that “special spot” that utopians love so well, this kind of stunt would never happen. There is ONE way to deal with this utopian INSANITY.
    The ‘offender’ owes it to himself to make a special trip to ‘deliver’ the fine. And, he owes it to himself to deliver that ‘fee’ in person, And, if he doesn’t show up with $525 in many bags of PENNIES, then he DESERVES that damned fine.

      I remember a man getting a bill for 1 cent from the government with a warning that it had to be paid immediately or he would receive jail time … at least. But the government did offer to let him make four payments on it if he couldn’t afford it all at once. So he did … he sent them four checks for 1/4 cent.

    This has got to be a late April Fools joke. If its not, I am just getting sick and tired of the government BS. This is just STUPID.

I for one am getting sick of the direction our country is heading. Our government is not abiding by our laws, now it is time for us to stand up and just say NO.

  • JM

    So do the park rangers also clamp down on any other groups who travel together inside the park?
    You know my answer to that….

    • Dennis48e

      If the leader is charging them $500.00 per person to take them through the park without a permit then yes.

  • Daniel Studnicky

    First, Mr. Nash, (and I’m fully aware this comment is not going to endear me to your supporters) the heading of your article is an insult to your readers. You have, successfully, pulled off the “Barnum & Bailey” schlock used to “pull” in “marks”!
    Secondly, your assessment of the Chief Ranger’s mental incompetence (she seemed to be unclear as to the reason for “fining” him. In fact, she “cited” him…………….she did not FINE him).
    After reading her cogent explanantion of the reason for the charge, I was not the least bit confused as to why the summons was issued, nor was I dismissive of the regulation violated by this “shill” pulling in “marks” to search for an imaginaty creature.
    And so I wonder……………………why were you?

    • 45caliber

      Daniel:

      As on who grew up in the AR Ozark Mountains (yes, I’m a hillbilly) I can tell you that the park rangers and game wardens throughout the state not only ‘cite” someone, they also fine them. And they can fine whatever they really want to do. I know of at least one fine of $5000 – for shooting the game warden’s horse while he was riding it. (And all of us locally felt that it was justified.)

      The park is supposed to be open to the public. That includes groups. The only fee is a camping fee unless you want to use some pavilion, etc. There is nothing said to anyone about having to have permits to look around the park. Since nothing was said ahead of time to anyone, whether in this group or not, why fine him? Most rangers I know would simply laugh and wave them on so the ranger can go tell his friends and get a good laugh with them.

      Frankly, if I was looking for Big Foot, I’d go somewhere else, like Washington state or Idaho. Or even the national forests in AR. It certainly wouldn’t be in a park with a lot of people around.

      Dear Daniel Studnicky,

      You write: “First, Mr. Nash, (and I’m fully aware this comment is not going to endear me to your supporters) the heading of your article is an insult to your readers. You have, successfully, pulled off the “Barnum & Bailey” schlock used to ‘pull’ in ‘marks’!” First, Mr. Studnicky, neither grammar nor spelling is your strong suit, nor do you understand publishing. The job of a headline is to pull readers into the story. Apparently it did its job. It certainly got you here.

      You write: “Secondly, your assessment of the Chief Ranger’s mental incompetence (she seemed to be unclear as to the reason for ‘fining’ him…After reading her cogent explanantion (sic) of the reason for the charge, I was not the least bit confused as to why the summons was issued…” Bradford is apparently quite unsure of the reason behind the citation, as she gave two separate and distinct reasons, neither of which applied to the other. Then she topped off her incoherence by suggesting that Bradford should have first acquired a permit, but then admitting that had he attempted to acquire one, no permit would have been issued. Cogent explanation? Hardly. It’s typical government doublespeak.

      You write: “nor was I dismissive of the regulation violated by this “shill” pulling in “marks” to search for an imaginaty (sic) creature.” What regulation? Do you have a problem with capitalism? If a person offers to lead an expedition to search for Bigfoot for a fee, and people choose to pay that fee to search for an imaginary (or not) creature, where is the harm? As long as he delivers on his promise and does not defraud, why should the government interfere? Put simply: It should not!

      You write: “In fact, she ‘cited’ him…………….(sic) she did not FINE him).” A mere technicality as a citation, by necessary inference, leads to a fine. If we are going get picky, your series of periods should have been an ellipsis, which consists of three periods, not more than a dozen. However, it is inappropriate here, as they are used to signify the intentional omission of a word or phrase from a section of an original text that is being quoted. Ellipses also indicate an unfinished thought or a trailing off into silence. Ellipses should not be used to indicate a pause in speech, as I assume you were trying to do here.

      The pettiness and ignorance of your comments indicate you were probably indoctrinated in the public non-education system and that you are likely employed by the government. It leads one to suspect you are either a Buffalo National River Park ranger, or perhaps TSA agent.

      Best wishes,

    since when did the u.s government own all the national parks and state parks when every taxpayers taxes pays for the up keep for them and tax payers pay the rangers wages too just like they do congress and senators along with the f.b.i the c.i.a. infact taxpayers pay all federal employes wages so the government owns the animals the trees the water the land we taxpayers own nouthing isn’t this what started the boston tea party when the king of england said he owned evey thing and that we had to pay taxs to him with with out reperzantation all government control and no rights or freedoms it’s got where kid’s can’t sell limenade in front yard it’s aganist the law even tho we payed taxs on the limenade and water propterty they got to buy a permit what the hell rong with this country too many good men women black white red tan yellow and all between died for freedoms and rights for this country vote RON PAUL and people that are trying to take our freedoms and rights back

    • 45caliber

      littlebill:

      If you check, you will find that the US government owns MASSIVE amounts of land, particularly in the west. In fact, many states like Utah and Nevada find that the government owns most of the state. Clinton, in Utah, made a park out of the land that the state planned to use for coal mining so he could get the CA vote. He promised to repay the state with more land – which has yet to be transfered to them. And they spend massive amounts of money every year buying up more land.

      Locally there is a bird watching group that is trying to get the feds to buy up 50,000 acres of land along the San Bernard and Brazos Rivers in Brazoria County in Texas. Their arguement is that the government needs to do this to “save the old timber”. The number of trees that are considered old can be counted on your fingers – and the government has to be monitored to keep them from bull dozing those trees to make roads, etc. The real reason is that the bird club wants to have sole permission to enter that area so they can increase recruitment nationwide among bird watchers who want a nice place to go where no one else can bother the birds.

    This is a National Park owned by the people of America and all the flora and fauna is there for observation and not for the taking.So if you see a Bigfoot tied to someones front fender as they drive down the road, please report it immediately.Even if you think it’s a Yeti or a Saquatch.Libertytrain;Where is your sense of humor today.Here you go off in a tangent with your bloomers all tied up in knots over such a trivial matter.I have traveled through the south and know they have beautiful homes great people and my favorite, pork chops on a breakfast bar.One more thing, at the end of the day we are all Americans and are truly blessed.

      Oh it’s ok and “funny” when you display your bigoted attitude and if the right does it they are bigoted racists- no your not displaying a sense of humor when you insult people and their State. You know that and I know that and you’ve been doing that a lot lady. You’re very small —-

      Yeah right jopa.

      “This type of behavior must be stopped immediately and the people of Arkansas should pump up the tires on their homes and surround the park right now in protest.”

      If you had even a tiny bit of the respect you claim to have for the South you would not have made that remark.

    They should have said that they were looking for the usurper’s birth certificate but figured they would find a big foot first since it was so much more likely to be found.

    Well I dont believe in Bigfoot, But the old saying fools are soon parted with their Money.
    The Govt owns the Land, all the land in this country, we the people only have the use of the land, as long as we pay the Taxes and the Fees.
    But there is a lot of us that do not take care of the Land,or the water, these are the People that make it easier for the Govt to charge fees and get away with it,
