COUNTY: Clinton County
LOCATION DETAILS: [The field mentioned is roughly one third of a mile southeast of the Lathrop Rest Area Southbound off Interstate 35 ; roughly 27 miles northeast of Kansas City, MO]
NEAREST TOWN: Holt
NEAREST ROAD: Pp
OBSERVED: I was taking my dogs outside and Iíve been taking a spotlight with me because there has been alot of coyote activity. I was scanning around with the spotlight and about 300 feet in front of me is a clearing for a soy bean field. I shinned the light past there and seen two sets of glowing eyes so I shinned back and from my perspective these eyes were at least 7ft tall.
When I held the light on them they both hid behind a big bush on the right side of the clearing to this field. I watched for a while. They kept peeking there heads out around the bush so I turned the light off and then back on again and theyíd be there looking back at me then would hide again. That had me pretty shaken so I went inside for about twenty minutes and came back out and walked down where I seen them. They were gone. I was still pretty shaken so I didnít get to close but it was crazy to see how big these stood. No animal in this area stands that tall and would hide behind a bush and peek out

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It happened around 12:30-1am it was pretty cloudy and dark that night it had rained that morning
ENVIRONMENT: It was at the entrance to a soy bean field
Follow-up investigation report by BFRO Investigator Ontario Richardson:
Witness reported that when he initially saw these creatures there were two sets of green eyes reflecting the spotlight. Both sets were leaning back and forth behind the tall bush. The appeared three times.
One set of eyes were 1' taller than the other. When he lowered the light, the shorter set of eyes had moved to the bush to the right of the path. He estimated that the eyes were golf ball sized. He had heard crashing noises in woods prior to the encounter. This path is 12' wide. Approximate height was over 6' tall.
Witness has a large garden full of treat foods, such as melon, strawberries and vegetables. When the food gets overripe, he throws it over the 4' tall fence. Natural sugars are rare in nature and is a highly sought after food by mammals. He also keeps horse feed in this area.
This area is located in rural Missouri, near wooded pastures, valleys, natural creeks and has five large ponds in the immediate area.
He was not sure what he encountered, but it did not fit the parameters of any common mammal.
