Bigfoot Causes Car Crash?

It's been awhile since one of these articles showed up on here on Augoeides. But it's good to know that sasquatch is apparently not entirely gone from the forests of the northwest. According to an Idaho newspaper, a recent car accident has been blamed on the creature, which was seen chasing a deer along a highway.

According to Pullman Radio, the woman, who was not identified, told the Latah County Sheriff’s Office that she saw a Sasquatch chasing a deer on a stretch of US-95 outside of Potlatch. She said the creature was “shaggy” and between 7 and 8 feet tall, the Moscow-Pullman Daily News reported.

The woman checked her mirrors to see the Bigfoot, but as her eyes re-adjusted to the road she hit the deer with her Subaru Forester, the newspaper said. Pullman Radio reported that the woman continued driving, picked up her husband from work then drove to the sheriff’s office to report the incident. Officers did not find any evidence of Bigfoot at the scene of the crash.

One thing that does occur to me is that a hunter in a ghillie suit would look a lot like what this woman is describing, aside from the height - but that can be very difficult to judge, especially if said hunter happened to be kind of tall. A ghillie suit is a modern form of military camouflage, which has a shaggy appearance. A hunter might also be following a deer.

As a matter of fact, back in 2012 a Montana man was hit by cars and killed while trying to perpetrate a bigfoot hoax by walking along a highway wearing one of these suits. It's possible that somebody else had the same idea, though doing it along a highway is particularly dangerous as that Montana man tragically found out. It's also not the best idea for hunting, since it can make you really hard for other hunters to see.

Or maybe this is the real thing. It does seem a little odd, though, since most bigfoot sightings happen in back country and not along busy stretches of road. If bigfoots or bigfeet or whatever hunt for deer along highways, you would think that there would be more sightings. Maybe one of them would even have been hit by a car at this point, which would prove once and for all that the creature really exists.
