Montana Man Gets Run Over And Killed When He Stood In the Road Dressed As Big Foot Trying To Provoke Big Foot Sightings
KALISPELL, Montana (AP) – A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed, authorities said. The man was wearing a military-style “Ghillie suit” consisting of strips of camouflage fabric and was standing in the right-hand lane of a highway south of Kalispell on Sunday night when he was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol. A second car hit the man as he lay in the roadway, authorities said. Flathead County officials identified the man as Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell. Trooper Jim Schneider said his motives were ascertained during interviews with friends, and alcohol may have been a factor but investigators were awaiting tests. “He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” Schneider told the Daily Inter Lake newspaper on Monday. “You can’t make it up. I haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before. Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him.”Tenley was struck by vehicles driven by two girls, ages 15 and 17, who were unable to stop in time, authorities said.
I believe a great philosopher said it best. “It’s not tragic to die doing what you love”. You live by the Sasquatch sword, you die by the Sasquatch sword. My only question is how much of the blame for this accident falls on this guy being dressed as Big Foot and standing in the middle of the road vs. the two drivers being 15 and 17 year old chicks? Like all things being equal I’d say this was 99% the girls just being horrible drivers and 1% him dressed as Big Foot.
PS – I’m 99% sure I cried during Harry and the Hendersons.
