Man Killed Trying to Stage Bigfoot Sighting

A man who was apparently trying to provoke reports of a Bigfoot sighting in northwestern Montana was struck by two cars and killed, authorities said.

The man was wearing a military-style "Ghillie suit" consisting of strips of camouflage fabric and was standing in the right-hand lane of a highway south of Kalispell on Sunday night when he was hit by the first car, according to the Montana Highway Patrol. A second car hit the man as he lay in the roadway, authorities said.

    I'd sure like more details. He'd only be hard to see if he were in the woods. Out on asphalt, or even a dirt road, he'd sure look like something non-road. Did he jump out at the cars from where he was hidden, and misjudge the distance or stumble because he couldn't see out very well? Was he just drunk and stupid?
