Man calls for law to protect Bigfoot

By: Chris Hamilton

Whitehall is known as the birthplace of the U.S. Navy, but if
one man gets his way, it may soon add "Protector of Bigfoot" to
its resume.

Paul Bartholomew, a local researcher, said, "I proposed a
protective ordinance for these creatures in the Whitehall area
which would protect these creatures under the law, and it would
also recognize these creatures."

Bartholomew has asked the Whitehall town board to pass a
resolution that would make it illegal to shoot Bigfoot. He said
the idea is mostly symbolic, adding it would be a step toward
bringing notoriety and tourists to the area, much like the lake
monster Champ does for Lake Champlain.

Bartholomew said the proposal is similar to one Port Henry
officials passed to protect their favorite monster.

In 1976, there reportedly was a Bigfoot sighting in Whitehall on
Abair Road. And some said there were other nearby sightings in
northern New York, and across the border in Vermont.

Protecting Bigfoot

Whitehall is known as the birthplace of the U.S. Navy, but if
one man gets his way, it may soon add "Protector of Bigfoot" to
its resume.

Bartholomew said, "What was sighted out there was a large
creature, 7 to 8 feet tall, walking like a gorilla hunched over,
making a sound like a woman screaming. While it was a landmark
case, it was just one that forms a chain of sightings which goes
back to the Algonquin and Iroquois."

Ultimately, Bartholomew hopes to bring a museum to Whitehall to
mark all the sightings in the area.

Bartholomew said, "We should have a museum exhibit, based on
this phenomenon, and I think it would draw tourists as well, and
maybe even a festival."

The Whitehall town board will review the resolution at its next
meeting on Feb. 5.
