A man trying to stage a Bigfoot sighting was hit by two cars, driven by two teens on Sunday night after walked out and onto a Montana highway. Randy Lee Tenley, 44, put on a Ghillie suit which camouflaged him while he attempted to instigate a Bigfoot hoax, hoping someone would spot him and report it.
A Ghillie suit (or yowie suit) is a net or cloth covered in leaves, twigs and grass. It’s used mostly by military to disguise themselves and blend into the foliage.
Three cars were involved in the accident on Highway 93. At least two of the cars drivers were teenagers. The first car was driven by a 15-year-old who hit Tenley, then the second car swerved and the third, driven by a 17-year-old, ran Tenley over. Tenley was pronounced dead at the scene.
One of Tenley’s companions told CNN that he was “well into the driving lane” and that he wanted “to make people think they had seen a Bigfoot or Sasquatch.”
Montana Highway Patrol Officer Jim Schneider told KTMF that Tenleys possible consumption of alcohol may have been a factor.
