What’s the Harm in Bigfoot hunting? Someone is going to get shot!
Rogers County Sheriff’s Department made multiple arrests in what appears to be an accidental shooting. Some involved say it happened during a Sasquatch hunting expedition.
Deputies were told that two men were hunting – apparently for Bigfoot – around 177th East Avenue and Tiger Switch Road Saturday night. One of the men reportedly heard a noise, jerked and shot his friend in the back, authorities say.
It’s not clear if alcohol or drugs were involved. But nerves get frazzled, fear is heightened and your judgements and responses are ALTERED by expectation. I’m just amazed it hasn’t happened more often with all the gun-happy people out there convinced they are going to bag a squatch.
First rendition of the story, we received information that someone had shot at them and that later turned into a more truthful explanation,” Walton said.
He told FOX23’s Price McKeon the group told deputies something in the woods spooked them and that’s when one of them got shot.
The gun was fired by the victim’s friend Omar Pineda, according to deputies. He was arrested for reckless conduct with a firearm and obstructing an officer.
It turns out that these folks just dug themselves into a bigger hole by: already being a felon, obstructing officers and trying to dispose of the weapon.
So, they really were idiots.
