Man killed while trying to create Bigfoot sighting
AP ^ | 8-27-12 | Staff

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) -- A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed.

The Montana Highway Patrol says the man was wearing a military style "Ghillie suit" and was standing in the right-hand lane of U.S. Highway 93 south of Kalispell when he was hit by the first car Sunday night. A second car hit him as he lay in the roadway.

Flathead County officials identified the man as 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley of Kalispell.

At least he died doing what he loved to do.

Maybe. Maybe a bigfoot wouldn’t let him get off the road...

He should have known that all he had to do was break out the Blueberry Bagels!

Bigfoots get a whiff of those bagels and they’ll flock to wherever you are!

I hadn’t thought if that way. Maybe you’re right. I mean, he could have died saving a child from a burning building, but it would have been hot and all. Staging a hoax must’ve been really meaningful to him.

That reminds me of the CSI episode where someone hit a Furry in a coyote costume. They had to investigate the Furry freaks in their Furry orgies.

I stumbled on one of their websites the other day. These clowns spend thousands for their getups.

Call me cynical, but I sort of get a flavor that this Bigfoot thing might not be real after all and certain people just like the watching the circus. Next thing you know we’ll find old Nessie is also unreal. And Aliens— how long until they’re at last debunked? I hear tell you abduct them for kicks, and I want to believe you, but I need proof because I’m losing faith here.

I can’t believe a fellow Montanan was so stupid...

Everyone knows that you never pretend you are a sasquatch on a well travelled road. You use a secondary road in a forested area and run across the road in front of the car so that they can stop and try to chase you. Run fast...

Never dress up like a sasquatch during hunting season. The hunters don’t need a tag.

Beginning sasquatchi should use the game tunnels under the roads and trip the game cameras...

Just a few hints...can’t wait to see the obituary...maybe I will show up at the funeral luncheon for some grub and a few laughs. I am sure he was a funny guy in real life.

RIP...

I think we had drive-by Furry a couple years ago post a thread. He didn't last long. It was "Chet" something or another...

I started a bicycle trip from the Amtrak station in Whitefish to Northern CA in August 1980 by riding south on Highway 93 to Missoula. I was very naive, and didn't realize that 93 was regarded as extremely dangerous. While bicycling I noticed a lot of parallel black skid-marks leading off into the ditch, and frequently saw a bumper sticker that read "Pray for me - I drive (highway) 93". I later learned that the drunken driving incidence on the Flathead Indian reservation was behind a lot of the carnage.

During my youth I believed in both flying saucers and Big Foot and had a camera in my car at all times for decades, just waiting for the opportunity. It never came.

By the mid 1990's when every other person had either a cam corder, camera or cell phone with camera, I decided that no mysterious object could display itself without good photographs being taken by somebody. Since none have ever surfaced, the answer is obvious.

I’ve been very close to I-93...taken I-90 up through Idaho once from WY and on to Seattle, but don’t recall anything remarkable about that area, as far as unusual traffic hazards went. Lots of other things were memorable.

Well, at least he was drunk. I'd hate to think anyone would do something this stupid while sober.

They can drive until 11:00PM.

It’s summer still. I don’t think they’re back to school until Wednesday so they were still on summer break. It’s light out until 9:00PM still.

North of the reservation on hwy 93 is fairly bad (all the way to Eureka) for drivers too. The biggest problem (after the drunks) is the number of deer in the road. They’re like palestinian suicide deer.

I’m inclined to think he was getting ready for archery season. Deer & Elk opens Sept 1st.

I didn’t read the full article so I will take it that friends and family confirmed his “hold my beer” activity.
