I drive by Van Meter while on my way to the big city (Des Moines) to run errands. When it comes to crypto-creatures, it just doesn't get any better than this!

The article is mostly about the 'psychology' of unusual sightings. This quote was interesting to me (though it is a rather broad statement):

"People with tendencies toward depression, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or disassociation are more prone to see UFOs or creatures, his research shows, and the encounters can be harmful."
