About 40 percent of Washington residents think he could be, according to a poll from insurance company PEMCO.
PEMCO surveyed users online and found out many are open to the idea that Bigfoot is lumbering through the woods somewhere.
Nearly four out of 10 surveyed responded — rather vaguely –that they think it’s possible Sasquatch exists. Maybe more importantly, about 13 percent said they’ve seen a Sasquatch or know someone who has.
OK, so what about other strange phenomena? PEMCO asked customers if they believe in UFO sightings — spacecraft that can’t be identified by anyone. And 55 percent responded in the affirmative.
“I guess it’s appropriate that ‘The X-Files’ was shot on location in the Northwest, in Vancouver, B.C.,” said PEMCO spokesman Jon Osterberg.
