New Hampshire Bigfoots are Smarter Than Montana Bigfoots

The Ghillie hunting suit makes you blend in with the weeds.

It’s something we all teach our kids: Don’t play in the street.

Perhaps that warning is no longer enough.  Based on what happened to 44-year-old Randy Lee Tenley, of Kalispell, Montana, earlier this week, we need to be more specific.

DO NOT PLAY ON THE HIGHWAY — ESPECIALLY WHILE PRETENDING TO BE INVISIBLE.

According to news reports, Tenley was trying to frighten a few motorists by pretending to be Bigfoot on U.S. 93.  The cars were not scared. They thought they were running over a pile of grass.

And now, this is Mr. Tenley’s legacy — an obituary waiting to be matched by the next guy who drowns in a Loch Ness Monster suit.

When I covered the Bigfoot Supreme Court case for Fast Company, I scoffed at the state of New Hampshire’s assessment that a Bigfoot impersonator might endanger others.

But I guess New Hampshire Bigfoots are much smarter than Montana Bigfoots. If you’re curious about the legal implications of channeling your inner monster, click on the Sasquatch clip below:

P.S. Should you be tempted, as I was, to invest two hours of your life in the new SyFy Bigfoot movie starring Barry Williams and Danny Bonaduce, go grab a book instead. I expected the movie to be so-bad-it’s-good in a Showgirls kind of way. But the acting is just plain pitiful.

My interview with Bigfoot

If the buffoon park rangers at my favorite hiking spot were bright, they would be selling souvenir t-shirts instead of kicking Bigfoot off Mt. Monadnock.

Read my exclusive interview with Bigfoot in this month’s New Hampshire Magazine and find out why his eviction might be a civil liberties issue in the “Live Free or Die” state.
