Bigfoot-Protest

JAFFREY, N.H. (AP) -- A New Hampshire artist and videographer who
dressed as Bigfoot in a state park says his rights were trampled by
big government.
Jonathan Doyle, of Keene, has complained in a letter to the
state parks department that a Mount Monadnock park ranger halted
his performance art project in the fall because he didn't have a
permit.
Doyle is arguing through the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union
Foundation that his free-speech rights were violated when he was
expelled from the state park in Jaffrey. He says he and others with
him, some also in costume, were on a lesser-used trail and weren't
bothering other park visitors.
Doyle says the state hasn't responded to his letter. The
Division of Parks and Recreation says it has been forwarded to the
state attorney general's office.
