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, wants the state to admit he was in the right when a park ranger halted his performance art project this fall because Doyle didn’t have a permit. With help from the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union Foundation, Doyle is arguing his free speech rights were violated when he was expelled from Mount Monadnock in Jaffrey.
He says he and others with him, some also in costume, were on a lesser-used trail and were not bothering other park visitors.
Doyle says the parks department hasn’t responded. The Division of Parks and Recreation says his letter has been forwarded to the state Attorney General’s office.
