A 27-year -old dude called the cops on Monday (12/17) to report he'd been shot at multiple times in Helena.

According to the Independent Record, the man had been setting up some targets on public land when bullets whizzed by his left, then his right, so he took cover as the shots continued. He eventually caught up with the shooter who explained, very seriously, that since he wasn't wearing hunter's orange, he mistook him for Bigfoot.

OK, first, this guy resembles Bigfoot enough to actually draw fire? And, if you thought you were looking at the real Bigfoot, would your first instinct be to kill him?

The man who was shot at said it wasn't a big deal so he didn't choose to press charges, however police say the allegations could warrant a charge of attempted negligent homicide.
