An attempt to incite sightings of the elusive legendary creature Bigfoot in Montana has turned deadly.

According to reports, 44-year-old Randy Tenley decided to dress up in military style clothing commonly referred to as a Ghillie suit. The suit covers the entire body and camouflages as dense foliage. Military snipers often use it to hide their positions from enemy forces.

An example of the suit worn by Tenley.

Wearing the suit, Tenley stepped into the right lane of traffic on Highway 93 South in Montana. A 15-year-old girl hit him first, while another swerved, and then a third (driven by a 17-year-old) ran him over.

“He was trying to make people think he was Sasquatch so people would call in a Sasquatch sighting. You can’t make it up. I haven’t seen or heard of anything like this before,” Trooper Schneider stated during a media interview.

Police suspect alcohol was involved in the stunt, but have yet to receive back the toxicology report.
