Bigfoot near the Palouse?
In a story originally reported by the Moscow-Pullman Daily News, a 50-year old woman driving on US Highway 95 claimed that Bigfoot chased a deer onto the road and caused her to strike it. The woman told the Latah County Sheriff’s Office that a she looked into her rearview mirror to see a 7-to-8-foot tall “shaggy object” and when she looked forward the deer ran in front of her and she hit it with her Subaru Forester.
The incident happened north of Potlach, Idaho. She was able to drive her vehicle back to Pullman to pick up her husband and then tried to report it to the Idaho State Patrol before they forwarded her to the Sheriff’s Department. The Sheriff’s report said they did not find any evidence of Bigfoot.
