Earlier this week, a woman in Idaho hit a deer with her car. That's not much of a news story. People hit deer with their cars all the time. StateFarm considers Idaho a high risk state, with a 1 in 147 chance that a driver will collide with a deer. Yet this particular story appeared in newspapers and television broadcasts across the country. Why?
Because the driver said that a sasquatch made it happen.
According to the original report in the Moscow-Pullman Daily News:
A 50-year-old Tensed woman driving south on U.S. Highway 95 reported seeing a sasquatch chasing a deer on the side of the road late Wednesday night near milepost 367 north of Potlatch, according to the Latah County Sheriff’s Office. She told the sheriff's office she checked one of her mirrors to take a second look at the 7- to 8-foot tall “shaggy” object and after she refocused her eyes onto the road the deer ran in front of her. She struck it with her Subaru Forester.
Part of the beauty of this report is the level of detail. This story must be true. A Subaru Forester wouldn't lie.
Obviously, we can draw only one possible conclusion. Humanity has found another ally in our war against deerkind. The enemy of our enemy is our friend. Got get 'em, Bigfoot!
