Whitehall, New York (a village and a town in Washington County, New York. Both are on the Vermont border at the south end of Lake Champlain and lie between Lake Champlain and Lake George ) has been called the birthplace of the U. S. Navy, but is also famous for having a long history of reporting’s and sightings of alleged Bigfoot’s going all the way back to Indian folklore.
Even though it’s a small township on the eastern border of New York’s Adirondack Mountain Preserve, it’s been considered by Bigfoot researchers and hunters alike of being somewhat of a hotspot for North American Bigfoot activities.
The elusive Bigfoot/Sasquatch has been spotted in Whitehall dozens of times between 1959 and the present, according to a local Bigfoot researcher there are several sightings every year. In fact, the village board has taken this so much to heart, they have actually approved a resolution that makes it illegal to hunt the Bigfoot creature, so no Bigfoot hunting expeditions in Whitehall allowed.
The town board approved the resolution without considerable discussion after a motion by Councilman Bruce Angus and a second from Councilman Stephen Lane. The resolution warns against “the willful premeditated act of killing” a Bigfoot.
The town board unanimously approved a protecting ordinance against harming or killing a Sasquatch, only the third municipal body to ever pass an ordinance for a creature that still has not been proven to even exist.
Although for the record, “I think it’s going to be a good thing for tourism and publicity, It can’t hurt.” Supervisor Vernon Scribner said.
Profiled on the show MonsterQuest (the History channel), “the Monster of Whitehall” the Bigfoot creature reportedly stands 7 to 8 feet tall, strange high pitch screaming, walks like a gorilla hunched over. Several police officers reported a Bigfoot sighting in 1976, and the original officers have recently passed polygraph tests, for the show.
