Bigfoot hikes the Snoqualmie Pass on I-90 – Who knew?

Bigfoot-sasquatch

"In a video posted on Twitter, Washington State Department of Transportation wrote: "I think Bigfoot is making the rounds across our mountain passes. WSDOT showed him on Sherman Pass … now he is on the I-90 wildlife overcrossing, Snoqualmie Pass. By Washington State Department of Transportation

Bigfoot must be traveling through Washington state this week, and the Washington State Department of Transportation has had a front-row seat.

Earlier this week the department apparently captured photos of the creature on its Sherman Pass on State Route 20 webcam.

Now officials are saying they have a video of the legend in a completely different location.

The transportation department’s Twitter account for Snoqualmie Pass traffic shared a video of what appears to be Bigfoot walking along the wildlife overcrossing on Interstate 90."

    Deer and other animals tend to have paths they follow and the over crosses are safe areas for animals to cross. Of course the animals don’t read the signs but these safe areas are put where animals have historically crossed.

    re “wildlife overcrossing?”
    We have things like that in Germany. It’s a well fenced bridged brushwood area over a road or highway. It allows the animals to run there, which is arguably safer than having them to run through the traffic.
    In other placed there are tunnels or tubes (“undercrossings”) that allow frogs and the like to cross roads.

    Pat – Virginia evidently does underpasses rather than bridges

    Aug 2, 2005 – Wildlife crossing structures are gaining national recognition by transportation agencies as effective measures to reduce animal-vehicle collisions and connect wildlife habitats across transportation corridors. In Virginia, white-tailed deer and black bear pose the highest risk.

    Wildlive overcrossing?
    It’s a broad bridge across the interstate, much like a short tunnel. It’s covered with greens, bushes and trees to provide a safe crossing. You wouldn’t like a deer smashing your windscreen, not even at only 55mph, that’s one of the reasons they are buildt.

    pl,
    Bigfoot is wise. At this time a cycle of heavy snow, heavy rain, and heavy snow again has every critter with a lick of sense down in the valleys.
    The wildlife crossings are an attempt to cut down on the problem deer/elk unsuccessful freeway crossings. The stats show improvement, or so we are told.

    Sir;
    The late Ivan T Sanderson was an early pioneer of the cryptozoology field. A ‘real’ scientist and character, (he worked for Royal Naval Intelligence in the Caribbean during WW-2,) he worked on the assumption that there were different ‘types’ of “Yeti” in different parts of the world. His thesis seems to have been that “Yeti” were remnant populations of hominid species that evolved alongside humans.
    A basic point he mentions is just how little of the world’s land surface has been adequately surveyed, much less explored.
    So, yes, absent a Cosplay Jeremiah Johnson enthusiast, there could be Bigfoot roaming around the Wild West.

    The wildcrossing reminds me of an old Sledge Hammer episode where a female prosecutor shows him around in her house. They came to iirc the head of a splendid deer decorating the wall
    Hammer asked whether her father shot it. She laughed and answered that he didn’t shoot that animal but was just a horrible driver.
    Clearly a case for “wildlife overcrossing” (and the loss of her father’s drivers’s license).

    all
    IMO this static camera set up works because it is far enough away so that the animal can’t see or hear it. I have visible light/IR cameras all over my property and the animals can hear some sound from them that we cannot. they approach the camera and peer into the lens. funny to see.

    Here is a book that Ivan T. Sanderson wrote on the subject of man-sized man-seeming animals strongly suggested to exist in different places.

    Recently I have started interesting myself into the bigfoot phenomena… and listen to these following YouTube sites. It’s a nice distraction from the political folly of our times!
    I like this Canadian hunting guide

    and the voice of this woman

    In Australia, the Aborigines talk about the Yowie – obviously the same species as Bigfoot.
    They are seen here from time to time.

    Clearly the Bigfoot is less shy than Tulsi Gabbard. Or (a) the TeeVee would have us believe that. Or (b) he knows how to stand in front of the camera better than Tulsi. (For Tulsi, Camera= DNC attention).

  14. Avatar Diana Croissant says:

    I say that less attention to or interest in Bigfoot is better. Let them live their lives in peace.
    All the noise and the arguing we endure as humans is not good for us.
    At least we have dogs to teach us about the important things in life. (Cats too.)
