Crazy Washington Laws

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -  Whether you're a life long Washingtonian or simply new to the area, there are some state laws that may leave you questioning.

If you're cruising around on the Internet and type in Washington Laws, you might be surprised at what you find.

Back in 1969, Skamania County passed a law that if a person was found harassing bigfoot, Sasquatch or other undiscovered subspecies, it's a felony offense.

It was later amended it the 1980's to preclude an insanity defense and to consider such a killing homicide if the creature proved to be humanoid by a coroner. 

While Whatcom County declares it a Sasquatch Protection and Refuge Area.

RCW 70.54.050 may sound like a bunch of numbers, but it sums up that no person may walk about in public if he or she knowingly has a cold.

Also, It's mandatory for a driver with criminal intentions to stop at the city limits and telephone the chief of police as he is entering town.
