The Missouri Momo,
St. Charles County, Missouri
"I use to
live in St., Peters Missouri 63376. I was close to 20 yrs old when we
had a sighting of a creature in the late 1970's. The creature was seen
in St. Peters, Missouri. This happened downtown St. Peters at a railroad
bridge that crosses Dardenne Creek. The creek may be 20 to 30 miles
long and drains into the Missouri River. Downtown St. Peters is a very
small farming town.
A friend and I used to sit by the creek or on the Railroad Bridge and talk. One night we were climbing on the bridge. My friend was the daring type, so I didn't think much about the shadows I saw. I thought it was just my friend fooling around.
I yelled at my friend asking what he was doing? To my surprise, it was never him moving around. We just laughed it off and went on chatting. My friend had to urinate so he went to the end of the railroad bridge and started to go. Whatever was following us lifted the railroad timbers and tried to grab my friend. We ran approximately 1 mile back to his parent's home. I have left out a lot of details as I'm disabled now and it's hard to write.
This animal was
seen many times after our first sighting and was seen by our friends.
This animal is violent, tried to kill my friend, smells like rotting
hair, it lets out a scream like a panther. One major thing that is different
about this creature and that is it has only 3 fingers, like a tree
We saw the imprints
of the fingers and the nails in the soft mud of the creek banks. It
appeared they would then grab the steel beams under the railroad bridge
and it would leave the muddy hand prints on the beams. The odd part
was we never found a footprint. I say these were handprints only
The creature was
approximately 8 to 9 feet tall, couldn't tell if it had a tail, only
saw it from the front, appeared to be male, very long and matted hair
on whole body, hair color was a very dark brown, could barely see its
eyes through the hair, the shoulders looked to be close to 5 foot wide
from shoulder to shoulder, very short neck, its arms were long as the
hands hung past the knees, body shape looked like the classic bigfoot
pictures, except the arms were longer and the hands were different.
I could not describe the feet as for the amount of hair. The creature
had a very bad rotting hair type smell. It also let out a panther type
scream one night as we must have
The other times we could tell it was getting near was you would smell this foul odor. It moved very quiet in the creek and the woods for an animal of this size. I couldn't begin to give you an approximate weight of the creature. The only thing I could think why it was aggressive is one night it appeared to be a female with 2 small ones with it. She stayed in the brush, I couldn't tell if it was bent over or what position to keep the 2 small ones guarded. She appeared to be maybe a 1/3 of the size of the male. She was 50 to 75 yards from us and the closest we got to the male was maybe 40 to 50 feet away. I have told many people of this sighting over the years, no one believes it. There was 5 people there one time that seen this creature and we seen it maybe 4 to 5 times in a short period of time. I guess it went to a different location on the creek. I assume it walked mainly in the water as not to leave a few tracks as possible.
Let me know if you need more info. The only mistake I made was I never thought of bringing a camera along. That's life. People probably would just say the pictures were fake. You know how that goes. At least I know in my mind what I saw, heard and smelled.
At the time, I was working for a company and I was talking with another friend about my past and we just happen to go down by the bridge. I was showing him around and to my surprise I spot these prints freshly made in the mud in the creek. Chills ran up my back, I don't know what to say to this person as they may think I made the tracks myself. Many people have seen this animal, and it has changed their life. No one believes me? All I know is my eyes don't lie."
