Montana Man Killed While Trying to Revive Bigfoot Hoax

Posted By on Tue, Aug 28, 2012 at 4:30 PM

Sad, strange news out of Big Sky Country. A man dressed in a Ghillie camouflage suit, designed to look like a big pile of grass and sticks, was killed after being hit by two cars on a Montana highway on Sunday night.

That's the sad part. The strange part?

From CNN.com (emphasis added):

(The victim, Randy Lee Tenley) was "well into the driving lane," and according to his companions he was "attempting to incite a sighting of Bigfoot — to make people think they had seen a Sasquatch," (state trooper Jim Schneider) said in the KECI report.

According to police, a 15-year-old driver struck Tenley with her car, a second car swerved to miss him, while the third car ran over him.

Apparently, no one had called that evening to report any Bigfoot sightings, which means that not only did a man die for no good reason, he didn't even accomplish what he hoped to do with his final actions. Bad times.
