    MO - Momo monster celebrates 40th blood-curdling year: Mississippi River Bigfoot?

    Town recalls 'Momo' saga (columbiatribune.com)
    Reports of beast captivated nation.
    ---
    The Momo saga began July 11, 1972. On a hot summer day, 8-year-old Terry Harrison and his 5-year-old brother, Wally, were chasing their dog through the woods.

    Suddenly, 15-year-old Doris Harrison, who was inside, heard her brothers screaming, ran to the window and saw a creature she described as perhaps 7 feet tall with dark hair covering its face. It held a dead dog under its arm and blood — apparently from the dog — flecked the dark hair of the beast. And, ooh, that smell!

    "It wasn't a man, and it wasn't a bear," said Doris Harrison Bliss, now 55. "It was something ..."

    "Something you'd never seen before?" she was asked.

    "Exactly!"

    The link says "page not found".

    Yes, we have that chap's cousin Cohomo (Coal-Hollow-Monster) running amok around here.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.

    A local hunting party was organized to gun down the beast except they wound up shooting themselves.
