When he got back to Jefferson City, Mo., in about 30 min, he called me and told me about it, and that he was taking another load down to meet him there. I did so. He showed the place and then he left to make his delivery. I walked up and down both sides of the road and found where somthing had walked up to the fence from the east. The grass was thick and mashed down but no imprints were left. I also noticed the cattal acting spooked. I am making this report for my brother, whom would not.

Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Stan Courtney:

I spoke with the submitter as well as the witness, his brother.

He stated that he got as close as 75 yards. The animal was between black and brown in color but he was unable to make out any features as it was looking away from him.

He checked his mirrors and looked back and the animal was gone. He was impressed how quickly it could move out of the roadway.

The witness also had a sighting in November of 1959 or 1960.

The report is #9941 Callaway County, Missouri.
