Describe what you were doing at time of sighting
Recently we have had several puma Sighting out in the country where my sister and her husband lives. Indecided to walk down the abandoned road near their house to look for bobcats or any tracks of the puman(Mountain Lion) that had attacked their dog ealier that week. I was approximatly 1/4 mile from theirnhouse out in the middle of nowhere by the old bridge when I heard this high pitch yell at first I thoughtnit was the Mountain lion because they scream and it startled the hell out of me so I thought I would turnnback and thought this was a dumb idea trying to see a real mountain lion then when I glanced down thencreek as God as My Witness this Tall person like huntched animal/man was supping water glanced atnme and I bolted like a mad cow had never seen anything like it ever. I scared it just as bad because Incould hear literally hear it scamper rather loudly from the area. I felt like it was possibly going to go afternme but it didnt.
Describe what you heard / found / saw
Later when my brother in law came home I told him what I thought I saw, I told him it was a gorilla likenman he said it was probably a small black bear because he said they have them more south missouri andncould have migrated here so we went to the creek and where it was approximately there were huge mudnslush marks like when you sink in mud and have to pull your boots out, it looked like there was a hugenstruggle but that thing moved pretty quickly so it had to be strong it left huge impressions in the mudnand deep.
Describe the time of year and the environment
It was Spring and we have had summer like weather with lots of rain lately.
