Man Fights for Right to Dress as Bigfoot

NH artist protests halt to Bigfoot project


Jan 5, 9:42 PM EST

JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire artist and videographer who dressed as Bigfoot in a state park says his rights were trampled by big government.

Jonathan Doyle, of Keene, has complained in a letter to the state parks department that a Mount Monadnock park ranger halted his performance art project in the fall because he didn't have a permit.

Doyle is arguing through the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation that his free-speech rights were violated when he was expelled from the state park in Jaffrey. He says he and others with him, some also in costume, were on a lesser-used trail and weren't bothering other park visitors.

Doyle says the state hasn't responded to his letter. The Division of Parks and Recreation says it has been forwarded to the state attorney general's office.


The question is:  Would you be able to resist the temptation to jump out from behind trees and scare park visitors if you were dressed up as Bigfoot? 

I'm not sure that I could should I ever find myself in that rather unlikely situation.

I could have gone my whole entire life without the image of people dressed as Bigfoot making porno in state parks.
I hadn't imagined he was shooting a film, thanks for knocking that idea up a notch...

The article said he was a videographer.  Maybe they were making a sequel to Harry and the Hendersons?
a "Debbie does Dallas" vs "harry and the Hendersons" mashup?

Why did you have to say that?  Bigfoot dressed as a cheerleader and strapped to the roof of a station wagon...  Horrible!! 

That mental image is not going to leave me for a good long while.
