Boy causes Big Foot scare in CT

July 2, 2009 8:03:14 AM PDT
A Connecticut woman's close encounter with the mythical beast, Sasquatch or Big Foot, turned out to be nothing more than a boy in a costume. Fairfield police say a woman driving on Unquowa Road last Tuesday night called police to report that she "almost hit Sasquatch," which was standing in the middle of the road.

She told police the hairy beast was 8 feet tall and had "legs like tree trunks." It ran off after she switched her headlights to high beams.

Police say they searched and found a 16-year-old boy dressed in a gorilla-like costume. He told them he was standing at the intersection of Unquowa and Sturges roads, waving at passing cars while friends watched.

He was turned over to his parents.
