Woman Encounters Gorilla-like Creature in Yard
Kansas City Star
A woman having a snack on back porch late at night, said a gorilla jumped over her back fence, climbed into a tree, swung from limb, which broke under it's weight, then ran through her garden, peeked in the back window and fled over the fence again. By this time she had ran back inside her house. Two days later she called the police. When the police arrived they found the broken branch and a three-toed print in the garden.
