40 years ago a small town in Missouri became the center of attention in the hunt for a mysterious beast.

Kansas City Star said:

The Sasquatch-like creature stood tall like a man – just bigger, stinkier and hairier – cradling a dead dog under one arm and growling. The stench from ole' Big Foot was horrific and sickening before the creature darted back into the rural Missouri woods.

Kinda tough to be scared of a monster named Momo.
Sounds like everybody's favorite uncle.

I've read a few things about this "monster" in my favorite book, le Grand livre du Mysterieux.

I think it's nothing more than a hoax.

Thank you for sharing. :)

Yeah, to me the sightings are just not credible. Even back then two specialists said that the tracks found in the area were nothing more than a hoax. Add to this the fact that a so-called "investigator" claimed that the "monster" was a creature left by a UFO, that the creature was seen also in Washington and Florida ( without any evidences, clearly the guy created these "facts" ) and there you have it, a silly local legend and nothing more.

Back in the 70's the state of Arkansas around the town of Fouke, a bigfoot type creature that was supossive to be scaring people there but eventually it stopped.
A movie was even made about it called The Legend Of Boggy Creek. I rented the movie and it was interesting but I'm skeptical. There were even a few reported
sightings of a bigfoot creature here in the state of Illinois but I find that impossible because this state is mostly flat farmland with small pockets of woodland and if
a creature like this did exist and want to be elusive, it would most likely be in a forrest with millons of square miles. I think it's a misidentification or someone is having fun. :yes:

   It's good to have some skepticism so you won't be gullible & naïve.
But to much skepticism can make you narrow minded to extraordinary possibilities.

I wonder if these images I've posted is what people are seeing in the woods.
Turkey Hunters will wear a variety of camo so a turkey can't see them and from
a distance people see a hunter walking along a treeline and thing it's a bigfoot.

Mental illness, mental retardation, hirsutism, etc. are all more likely explanations for someone retreating from humanity and living in such filth. Again, all of the sophisticated audio and video equipment being used by biologists and rangers in deep forest research has yet to reveal bigfoot or any of his relatives. But, it sure makes for a great campfire story.
