Man killed during Bigfoot hoax

The Darwin Awards have a new nominee in the shape of 44 year old Montana resident, Randy Lee Tenley, who was hit by two different cars while trying to fake a Bigfoot sighting. Tenley was covered from head to toe in a 'Ghillie Suit', a camouflage suit used by snipers to remain hidden from sight.

Tenley donned the suit late on Sunday evening and began to walk along Highway 93, alongside Flathead Lake in Montana. At around 10:30 pm he jumped out on an unsuspecting teen driver, who proceeded to drive straight into him, knocking him to the ground. The girl did not stop since she did not realise it was a man in a suit. Authorities are unsure if this impact killed him since he was struck a second time by another car, also driven by a teen girl.
A Montana Highway Patrol officer was quoted as saying, "This was a really dumb thing to do. I wouldn't be surprised if he had been drinking or doing drugs. I doubt that either driver even saw him, it was dark and he was wearing camouflage. Dumbass"
