Man Attempts to Stage Bigfoot Hoax, Gets Killed By Car in Montana

A Montana man was struck and killed by a car Sunday night while apparently trying to create a Bigfoot sighting hoax, according to news reports.

The Montana Highway Patrol reported that Randy Lee Tenley of Kalispell was pronounced dead at the scene on U.S. Highway 93 near Kalispell.

Tenley was wearing a military-style camouflage suit that resembles vegetation or foliage. He was struck by two cars consecutively and killed.

Police interviewed Tenley's friends to ask why he would wear such a suit at night, and were told of Tenley's nocturnal Bigfoot-inspired mischief.

State Trooper Jim Schneider said that Tenley "was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting."

"You can't make it up. I haven't seen or heard anything like this before. Obviously, his [camo] suit made it difficult for people to see him."

The most Bigfoot sighting - in 1967 in Bluff Creek, Calif., by a man named Roger Patterson - is widely considered a hoax pulled off by a costumed man.

Whether Patterson was the hoaxer or victim of a hoax is unclear, but anyone pulling such a stunt these days is clearly taking a real risk.
