If a little over four grand isn't raised by June 29th of this year the world-famous and much beloved BIGFOOT DISCOVERY MUSEUM may be closed and sold off on auction. Michael Rugg, the museum proprietor is a very dedicated guy who has put not only his heart and soul into this project, but also his life savings, car and home. He has never charged a dime for admission to one of the best Bigfoot-related collections around, nor for the knowledge he freely dispenses. YOU CAN HELP by donating, buying something, or visiting the place. But do it now, before it is too late. If you ever thought of visiting there, donate something and think of it as an investment in the future.

Bigfoot Museum Founder, Behind on Taxes, Hopes Attendance Will Rise; County Sets June 29 Deadline

FELTON - Michael Rugg, owner of the Bigfoot Discovery Museum at 5497 Highway 9, was surprised to learn the county had set a deadline of June 29 for him to pay back taxes of $4,368 or see the property sold at auction.
He thought he had more time.
After seven years of operation and gaining local and international recognition, the museum sees 30 to 60 people a day in the summer.
Rugg says only now is he seeing revenue, and he had hoped a contact from a Hollywood producer could turn his Felton Bigfoot story into a reality television show. Meanwhile, a balloon payment on a loan he took out before the economy crashed will come due next year.
"Maybe people will rally and help us," Rugg said, noting the museum is open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day but Tuesday.

Yesterday Yours Truly was the guest on the TeamTazer-associated EXTINCT? Podcast. It was a great conversation, an hour and about forty minutes of which was captured on the air. About an hour of the best stuff was off-air before and after the show. Anyway, now I am blacklisted for sure. Ms. Hovey has said that anyone associating with TeamTazer would be put on the shun list. Oh no! I will never Squatch in Salt Fork Community Park again!
