MISSOULA - "SASQUATCH WARNING: Due to the increasing flows in the Yaak River, sasquatches are coming down from the high country to feed on fish and vegetation at the river's edge."

The alarming words are written on a poster making its way around the Internet.

Unfortunately for Sasquatch-seekers and Bigfoot hunters, a succinct note from the U.S. Forest Service says it's fake.

The Forest Service and Kootenai National Forest posted on social media Monday morning to say:

"The Sasquatch poster that is circulating around Facebook and other areas was not created by or coming from the U.S. Forest Service or the Kootenai National Forest."

The poster in question was designed to resemble a standard Forest Service trail notice, and uses the Forest Service logo along with an image of Sasquatch.

It reads:

"SASQUATCH WARNING!

Attention Campers: Due to the increasing flows in the Yaak River, sasquatches are coming down from the high country to feed on fish and vegetation at the river's edge.

Do NOT be alarmed if you have an encounter. Remain calm and follow these simple steps to stay sife [sic]:

Do not run from sasquatch

Do not chase sasquatch

Do not yell at sasquatch

Do not feed sasquatch

Do go about your business

DO TAKE PHOTOS!

Sasquatches will not enter an occupied camp, nor will they harm you.

Once your encounter with sasquatch is complete, report to the nearest ranger station. Please keep note of the time, location, and direction the sasquatch is traveling.

The most recent encounters are between Yaak falls and the North Fork of Yaak River."
