Bigfoot Hoax Results In Fatality

Despite the fact that Bigfoot is a well-known pseudo-inhabitant of the Pacific Northwest, a Montana man died Sunday night attempting to create a hoax in Flathead County.

According to CNN, the incident occurred in Northwest Montana when Randy Lee Tenley, attired in a Ghillie suit, walked into "the driving lane" of Highway 93, and was hit by a teenage motorist. A second car managed to miss Tenley, but a third automobile ran over his body.

Tenley's companions confirm he was "attempting to incite a sighting of Bigfoot – to make people think they had seen a Sasquatch," said state trooper Jim Schneider. No news on whether or not Tenley was also trying to win a Darwin Award.
