Oklahoma Bigfoot Hunt Ends Very Badly

If Bigfoot is lurking in the woods of Rogers County, Oklahoma, this sounds like the wrong group to send to hunt the creature down: Three people were arrested and one was hospitalized after a hunting trip, supposedly to find Sasquatch, went incredibly wrong, News9 reports. After Omar Pinera, 21, was startled by a noise and shot his friend in the back, he was arrested, as was his wife and father-in-law, after they all told deputies conflicting stories about the incident.

Pinera was charged with obstruction and reckless conduct with a firearm, his wife was charged with obstruction for claiming somebody else had fired a shot, and his father-in-law was busted for destruction of evidence after throwing Pinera's handgun in a lake, according to WPTV. The shot man is expected to survive, and Bigfoot remains elusive. "To our knowledge, no Bigfoot sightings in Rogers County," the county sheriff says. "I think our focus is career criminals and thugs, and we're going to stay focused on that and let somebody else go after Bigfoot." (Last year, a Montana man dressed up as Bigfoot, and ended up getting killed.)
