Actually, there are quite a few State laws against harming or molesting Sasquatch, aka Bigfoot...
Well, considering that I'm not hunting, only on solo wilderness excursions for getting away, hiking, camping, star gazing, fitness, etc, and most
places on that list I go are listed as free and clear of any protection, or "still researching", I think I'll be fine.
Plus, I'm fairly certain that there are contingencies in any law regarding self defense against any animal.
If a unicorn pops up and starts shooting projectile fully automatic horns out its head with rainbow tracers, and it's a question of life or death, I'm
going to kill the unicorn.
I'm pretty sure I could make a fairly convincing argument for self defense against a 9-12ft tall hairy thing that smells like a sewer, and just
scary, especially poor little me being all alone out in the wilderness and what not; prepared and experienced in solo adventuring yes,
but, not for, ahem, that.
Thus, all that "don't shoot Bigfoot" nonsense isn't going to fly with me. If there is such an animal, and I happen to see it, I will chase/track the
thing down and 'defend myself' properly because, anything tracking me, especially ape or human-like, I'm going to feel threatened, alone in the
wilderness, purposely away from other people, and my safety requires resolution of the issue since I'm typically 2 or 3 days hike away from my truck,
or pick-up point and that's typically a hundred miles or more away from civilization even there.
Thus, bigfoot, unicorns, chupacapra, the loch ness monster, leprechauns, thunderbird, or anything else mythical, cryptid, spooky, and potentially
dangerous as an unknown, I will be more than happy to kill it, photograph it properly with 1000+ full resolution RAW format DSLR images from every
angle in daylight, even if I have to wait for daylight, take samples and photograph the the taking of the samples for proper documentation.
You won't hear any of that "I was scared" excuse nonsense from me when it comes to collecting proper evidence and documentation of it. Science is
pretty skeptical regarding any such claims, so, I'd go about documenting everything proper like, tape measure and all.
Whoever that idiot was that claimed to have killed a sasquatch and a baby sasquatch, if that is indeed the truth of the matter, and it wasn't just
bears, then, they were an idiot for not collecting a specimen or even trying to properly document with photos.
I'd further properly bury the remaining bit, wrapping it in either sleeping bag or sacrificing my little tent to protect the corpse, burying and
covering it if it takes me a full day to do so, acquire GPS data for retrieval, and rent a helicopter for retrieval on getting back to civilization
because I'm pretty sure I can afford as well as justify getting a helicopter (rental/with pilot) to retrieve a proper specimen.

your 2nd source listed
When I opened it, my VIPRE antivirus software from gfi software notified me that it had blocked a malicious trojan from that site.
I immediately closed it. There's safer things to look at.
I'll read down thread and see if anything came of this announcement of better vids.
I had no such problem, but, then again, I've edited my hosts file to block most known malicious ad sites, so, it could very well have been an ad
embedded at the site.
Dunno. whatever the case, sorry to hear it. I had no such problem.
You may desire to look into modifying your hosts file too: ad servers list
for host file modification
How-to and such regarding perevious list-link
Doing so, you'll probably notice a very marked improvement in internet speed, web page loading, and browsing experience.
