Sasquatch Stunt Takes A Tragic Turn On Highway (Hold My Beer)

Kalispell man, 44, dies

A man dressed in a military-style “Ghillie suit” who was attempting to provoke a Bigfoot sighting was struck by two vehicles and killed on U.S. 93 south of Kalispell Sunday night.

“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting,” Montana Highway Patrol Trooper Jim Schneider said. “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.”

The Flathead County Sheriff’s Office identified the man as Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell.

Schneider said Tenley’s motivations were ascertained during interviews with friends who were not in the immediate area but were nearby when the man was struck at about 10:30 p.m.

“Alcohol may have been a factor,” Schneider said. “Impairment is up in the air.”

I don't know about destroying their lives, but very traumatic and every-lasting for the 15 & 17 year olds.

This could almost qualify for a “wildlife” ping.

I've been there this time of year. Great place.

10:30PM it would not yet be dark in Kalispell.

I remember coming out of Moose's Saloon (no windows if I remember clearly) at about that time and I was shocked to find that it was still daylight.

Of course I wasn't wearing cammos as I ran down the street.

Moose's Saloon

Sounds like a fun place.

Honey, I'll be home when it gets dark.

When cases like this pop up I’m reminded of the saying “Sometimes the purpose of your life is to serve as a warning to others.”

Actually, it is dark around 9:15 this time of year.

On June 21st, it is light around 10:30 pm.

The fires in Idaho are keeping it hazy right now and pretty dark when the sun sets.

Still a tragedy. Poor guy. He seems to have violated a lot of the rules for dressing up as a Sasquatch.

The last one did it during hunting season. Ended up as jerky!

"Sasquatch becomes Sasquish."

Seriously, that's funny.

Darwin award candidate.

I think in this case the committee votes to skip the "candidate" phase and go right to the award. not much question on this one.

A Bigfoot “researcher” (hoaxster) once stopped by uninvited and told me that his efforts were for swaying others to Atheism. Retarded kooks.

And a letter of appreciation from Charles Darwin.
