Episode 1: Cryptids And The Law

What would happen if people actually captured Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster? This week Brent and Ryan talk to a Skunk Ape expert in the Everglades, then navigate the laws protecting Sasquatch in Skamania County, Washington.

Modern media is filled with shows following the lives of people on the hunt for elusive cryptids. While cryptozoology may seek out creatures not officially recognized to exist, that doesn’t mean there aren’t rules protecting some of these mythical monsters. Be sure to check out Ryan’s recent article on these laws, and read Joseph Stromberg’s written chronicle of his hunt for the Florida Skunk Ape at Smithsonianmag.com.
