National Parks Service Require Permit To Search For Sasquatch

Matt Pruitt was leading an expedition for The Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization near the Steel Creek campground outside Ponca, Arkansas on Feb. 24th, 2012, when he encountered two National Parks Service rangers who fined him $525 for “engaging in a business without a permit or written agreement”.

Pruitt has since paid the fine, most likely out of the money paid by those on the expedition, an estimated $300 to $500 per person. There were between 17 and 31 paying participants on this outing.

According to the Buffalo National River website, special use permits must be obtained for groups of 26 people or more. Those permits normally cost $150.

  1. The facts are a bit skewed here… he was NOT ticketed and fined for hunting bigfoot in a park.. he was ticketed and fined for charging others of activities within a park… and evolution that requires a Vendor’s License in ALL cases… they had charged these people to attend this event.. .and held it within the confines of the park…
