Randy Lee Tenley dressed in a Ghillie suit — camouflage designed to resemble heavy foliage — and stepped out onto Highway 93 Sunday night, officials said.
“He probably would not have been very easy to see at all,” said Jim Schneider, a state trooper. This was evident in the series of accidents that hit him afterwards. A 15-year-old girl hit him with her car, another car swerved, and a third car driven by a 17-year-old ran him over, CNN affiliate KECI reported.
Tenley was “well into the driving lane,” and according to his companions he was “attempting to incite a sighting of Bigfoot — to make people think they had seen a Sasquatch,” Schneider said in the KECI report. But authorities received no calls from drivers thinking they had seen Bigfoot, the station reported.
This is one example of a prank gone really bad! But do you think Randy Lee Tenley would have succeeded in his Bigfoot hoax had he not been run down by two cars? Do you think Bigfoot really exists? Feel free to type in your comments and opinions in the comment box below!
