A Montana man who was apparently trying to trigger a Bigfoot sighting by dressing up in a costume and darting out onto a dark stretch of highway was struck and killed by two passing cars, officials said.
Randy Lee Tenley, 44, of Kalispell, Mont., was apparently wearing a Ghillie suit at the time. That's a camouflage outfit -- sometimes used by military snipers or hunters -- designed to resemble dense, thick foliage.
"What we know so far is that we had a couple of guys out, allegedly trying to prompt a sighting of Bigfoot," Montana Highway Patrol Lt. Col. Butch Huseby told the Los Angeles Times. The officer added: "This is one of the dumbest things I’ve ever seen. Really."
But it was no doubt a frightening sight for the teenage girl who was driving down a two-lane highway at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday near Flathead Lake in northwestern Montana. That's when Tenley, dressed in the camo, stepped out onto the roadway, officials say.
