Idaho woman says she crashed after Bigfoot sighting


Share This

MOSCOW — A north Idaho woman had an interesting excuse for crashing into a deer Wednesday night — apparently she saw a sasquatch.

The Moscow-Pullman Daily News reports a 50-year-old Tensed woman was driving south on U.S. Highway 95 at 11 p.m. when she observed Bigfoot chasing a deer on the ride of the road near Potlatch.

She told the Lahah County Sheriff’s Office she observed a 7- to 8-foot tall “shaggy” object. After she refocused her eyes onto the road the deer ran in front of her. She struck it with her Subaru Forester.

The newspaper reports the woman continued driving her damaged vehicle to Pullman to pick up her husband from work. She arrived at the sheriff’s office around 12:30 a.m. Thursday to report the incident.

Deputies returned to the scene with the woman, but did not find any evidence of Bigfoot.

The incident was classified as a vehicle versus deer collision. The woman was not injured.
