HELENA- A man in Helena is claiming to have been shot at after being mistaken for Bigfoot.
Lewis and Clark County Sheriff’s Office tells us a man was target practicing in the North Hills when he was forced to take cover after shots were fired in his direction.
Once the bullets stopped flying, the man claims he approached the shooter to try to get an explanation.
“[The shooter] said, ‘I was out hunting Bigfoot.’ Thought he was Bigfoot, and he said no he wasn’t Bigfoot, and then the guy said you should be wearing orange. It seemed like a non-emotional approach to something that’s extremely serious,” said Leo Dutton, the Lewis and Clark County Sheriff.
Police say the man called in the report the day after the incident. He couldn’t remember who he talked to and gave a description of a black Ford F-150 that the man had.
Police checked the area and found no vehicle.
The man didn’t want to press charges, and police say they haven’t heard about any other leads in this situation.
A fisherman in North Carolina captured some puzzling footage of mysterious lights hovering over the water at a beach and some suspect that the oddities could be UFOs. The strange sighting reportedly occurred in mid-November and the video subsequently appeared online last week. According to the witness, who chose to remain anonymous, he was fishing at a site known as Cape Lookout when he suddenly noticed a “very bright, stationary, and silent” light in the sky.
“Over the course of the next hour it faded in and out,” the observer said, “as well as sometimes becoming multiple lights.” Although he was mystified by what he was watching, the fisherman was able to capture a brief video of the bewildering scene unfolding in the sky. The footage, which runs around 90 seconds, shows a pair of lights in the sky that inexplicably multiply as the man looks on in wonder. That said, like any good angler would, he sounds less put off by the UFOs than he is with his lack of luck, musing “still wish I could catch a fish.”
As to what the lights may have been, officials with the National Parks Service told a local newspaper that they had no idea what the “peculiar” lights may have been.
