In the city of Moscow, Idaho, a 50-year-old woman told Police that the reason she hit a deer with her car is that she was distracted by Bigfoot.

Shortly after midnight on Thursday morning, a woman arrived at the Latah County Sheriff's Office to report that she had hit a deer with her car just outside of Potlatch, Idaho, while driving south on Highway 95. She told officials that she initially saw Bigfoot chasing a deer on the side of the road and checked her mirror to try to get a second glance at Sasquatch.

Bigfoot was hunting a deer

When she turned her eyes from the mirror back to the road, the deer was in front of her and it was too close to avoid hitting.

The accident happened around 11:00 p.m. near post 367.

After hitting the deer that was allegedly being hunted by Bigfoot, the woman continued driving her damaged car to pick up her husband from work before driving to the Sheriff's office in Moscow. Since he did not witness the incident, the husband did not provide the police with a statement.

The Idaho woman

The woman, a resident of Tensed, Idaho in Benewah County, told police officers that Bigfoot was between 7 and 8 feet tall. For the record, that actually registers on the short end of the Bigfoot-sightings height spectrum. Most people who claim to see Bigfoot say he is anywhere from 7 to 10 feet tall.

The woman claims to have sustained a minor neck injury after hitting the deer.

After the report was filed, officials from the Latah County Sheriff's Office were sent to investigate the scene of the accident. No evidence was found near mile marker 366.9 (near Brincken Road North), where the sighting supposedly happened.

No evidence was found

No crime was committed and the police report made no mention of mental illness or intoxication on the part of the woman.

The report did note that she claimed to see Bigfoot, but clearly did not note any evidence. Unlike many popular Bigfoot sightings over the years, there were no blurry photos of the mysterious and elusive creature of legend.

Meanwhile, a man from Oregon is taking the never-ending search for Bigfoot very seriously. A 54-year-old man has devised a very serious plan to obtain evidence this Summer that Sasquatch lives in the woods of the Blue Mountains in northeast Oregon.
