Greenville Police Warn Residents Not to Shoot at Bigfoot

A little silly news to end the day with:

Police in South Carolina are warning cryptozoology enthusiasts who think they’ve spotted Bigfoot, not to take potshots at the creature.

The Greenville Police Department, in Greenville, South Carolina, posted the tongue-in-cheek warning on its Facebook page on Tuesday morning.

It came the day after a report surfaced about an alleged Bigfoot close encounter in neighboring North Carolina.

The police Facebook post was equal parts poking fun and straight up ‘don’t shoot!’ safety advice for its community.

In the post, police exhorted: ‘If you see Bigfoot, please do not shoot at him/her, as you’ll most likely be wounding a fun-loving and well-intentioned person, sweating in a gorilla costume.’
