Somebody Get This Guy A Darwin Award: Man Attempting Bigfoot Hoax On Side Of Road Gets Hit By Two Cars, Dies

August 28, 2012


A man believed to be drunk and dressed in a Ghillie camouflage suit to look like Bigfoot or a forest monster was struck by two cars while OOGA BOOGA-ing on the side of a dark Montana highway Sunday night and killed. I'M TRYING REALLY HARD TO FEEL BAD.

[State Trooper Jim] Schneider told Daily that troopers learned of Tenley's Bigfoot prank when they interviewed his friends, who were waiting nearby when the stunt turned tragic.

"He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch, so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting," Schneider said told the news website. "You can't make it up. I haven't seen or heard of anything like this before."

"Obviously, his suit made it difficult for people to see him," Schneider said. "Alcohol may have been a factor."

Now listen: if your Sunday Fundays have spiraled to the point you're running out of the woods on the side of the road pretending to be Sasquatch YOU NEED TO GET THE F*** OUT OF MONTANA. Move -- anywhere. Florida is cheap. Just sit on the beach and drink beer like a normal redneck.

Thanks to David B., who claims he dressed up like Bigfoot for a lover once. And to outspire, T8RO, Jeremy and Chris, who didn't mention doing anything like that abut I have my suspicions.

    God you'd think this guy never heard of hunting or stalking prey, you know what ghillies are designed for? I feel far worse for the girls who hit the guy than I do for him, I personally own a ghillie and I'll tell you right now I wouldn't spent ~ $100.00 on something I just wanted to prank people with.
    on the flip side he may have just made his own, either way dumb reason.

    This probably means that if there is a 'bigfoot', then it was probably run over and killed long ago...

  • Dieter Grosswiler

    This happened where I live in Kalispell, MT, my cousin was one of the friends who got interviewed and my dad knew him, wierd coincidence and kinda sad, I bet the 15 and 16 year old girls that hit him will be traumatized for life.

    Is it terrible I'm laughing so hard at this?

    Montana has the highest average IQ in the country...but this is dumbest idea I've ever heard of.

    If all alcohol and drug related injury, death and trauma risks went straight to the users, I'd promote more alcohol and drug consumption.

    While It's sad that the guy died, the guy who knocked him over and killed him will feel bad almost all of his life. I'd be thinking, "Accident or not, I killed somebody" if it was me that killed him.

    I'd stick with the "I killed Sasquatch"story

  • 2 teenage inexperienced female drivers. And you're absolutely right: this will hunt them forever.

    I'm glad I wasn't the only person to actually read up on the story, I believe the 15 yrs old girl incapacitated him and then the 17 yrs old girl finnished him off, either way those poor young women will be haunted by this for the rest of their lives.

    I hope this becomes a bestselling Halloween costume in 2012. We need to thin out the herd.

    Did he run out in traffic or did the driver swerve to run themselves down a Sasquatch?

    I chuckle to think of some redneck barreling down the road in their F150..."holy shit!! it's a mother f'ing bigfoot!!" and yank on the steering wheel to run the bastard down.

  • Actually, many drivers have observed these creatures, sometimes while crossing the road, and the overall shocking sensation is so abysmal, I doubt the idea of running it down would ever cross their mind.

    Yep, I'm a regular Cryptozoology fan :)
