(Newser) – A Montana man dressed up as what he hoped would be taken for Bigfoot was struck by two cars and killed. Randy Lee Tenley, 44, was wearing a hard-to-see military-type "Ghille" camouflage suit and was standing along a highway near Kalispell as the light was fading when he was struck. He was hit a second time by another car as he lay in the highway.

Friends told police Tenley hoped someone would mistake him for Bigfoot and report a sighting. Alcohol may have been involved in the plan, said investigators. "He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting," a state trooper told the Daily Inter Lake newspaper. "You can't make this up. I haven't seen or heard of anything like this before. Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him." (Read more bigfoot stories.)
