Using kids as bait seems a misstep

Regarding the article, “?‘Squatchers' keep an eye out for Bigfoot”: This letter does not concern the debate of the existence of sasquatch, but questions the sanity of the searchers. I can only wonder what my ex-wife would say if I wanted to borrow my 3 year old to use as a bigfoot lure. Or the quote by the 10 year old boy (the same age as my oldest) “Now I'm no longer just bait…” I think the bigfoot poop would hit the fan.
As for the mighty adult bigfoot searchers: I think instead of hoping to catch a glimpse of the elusive creature, they should be hoping CPS doesn't catch a glimpse of this story.
