Bigfoot Asserts First Amendment Rights

A self-proclaimed, unlicensed, New Hampshire-based "performance artist" who was ejected from a state park for dressing as Bigfoot has complained to state authorities that his First Amendment (free speech) rights were violated.

According to the letter, one Jonathan Doyle says he and several others - some of whom were also in Bigfoot costumes - were ejected from a state park in Jaffrey even though they were on lesser-used trails and were not bothering other visitors. The New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation is working with Doyle on the matter. Officials say the letter, which was sent to the state parks department, has been forwarded to the state attorney general's office.
