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.

Angels, demons and Bigfoot. Sounds like a Dan Brown novel set in the Pacific Northwest. Or else it refers to the subjects of some of the year's best books on myth and legend. It's been a good year for lore, but then again, any year is. People never exhaust their desire to believe in worlds beyond their immediate experience. What Hamlet scolded Horatio about -- that "There are more things in Heaven and Earth . . . Than are dreamt of in your philosophy" -- is a conviction plenty share even when critics say intimations of the divine are just the result of the brain's wiring.

Authorities on the East Coast are searching for Bigfoot. No, really. Vermont State Police are hunting for a Sasquatch sculpture reportedly swiped from a Westford couple's driveway over the weekend. The couple purchased the 8-pound, 15-inch-tall Yeti from a SkyMall magazine. Police say the statue is valued at around $100, the Associated Press reported, and the owners would be satisfied if it was simply returned to their front lawn. In addition to police efforts, the couple is using community network Front Porch Forum to search for the sculpture.

BEIJING - Unlike Japan, where Godzilla destroyed countless Tokyo landmarks, or South Korea, where celluloid sea beasts slink around the riverbanks into Seoul, China has no creature-feature tradition because film regulators historically have shunned superstition on the silver screen. But a new film, "Bigfoot," aims to take a swipe at China's long-standing monster movie ban. The Hollywood co-production of a local legend will begin shooting in a central China nature reserve in October with help from a special-effects master who worked on "Gremlins.
