Bigfoot prank claims man's life

An attempt at a "Bigfoot" hoax apparently cost the joker his life in Montana.

The Montana Highway Patrol said 44-year old Randy Tenley dressed up in a Bigfoot suit when he was hit by a car. The driver said she couldn't get out of the way in time; he was then hit by another car and killed.

Tenley's friends say he was wearing the suit to generate Bigfoot sighting reports. Investigators are waiting to see if tests show Tenley had been drinking.
