PHOENIX (Reuters) - A photo posted on Facebook depicting what Arizona officials said may have been a family of sasquatches, attracting hundreds of comments from skeptics and believers alike, was just a joke, authorities said on Monday. The Arizona Department of Transportation said there was no mystery about the image of several dark objects taken by a state traffic camera and posted on New Year's Day for all to spin theories about. "We were just having a little fun," department spokesman Tim Tait said. "People don't expect government to have a sense of humor, and we definitely have one." Officials put the prank into motion with a post that wondered aloud what the objects were off the side of the road amid the snowy landscape. "We might have spotted a family of sasquatches on SR 260 near Heber this afternoon. What do you think?" the entry stated. via Huff Post.
