Watercooler Talk
FAIRFIELD, Conn. (AP) — A Connecticut woman’s close encounter with the mythical beast, Sasquatch or Big Foot, turned out to be nothing more than a boy in a costume. Fairfield police said a woman driving last Tuesday night called police to report that she “almost hit Sasquatch,” which was standing in the middle of the road.

She told police the hairy beast was 8 feet tall and had “legs like tree trunks.” It ran off after she switched her headlights to high beams.

Police said they searched and found a 16-year-old boy dressed in a gorilla-like costume. He told them he was standing at the intersection of Unquowa and Sturges roads, waving at passing cars while friends watched.

He was turned over to his parents.
