COUNTY: Clayton County
LOCATION DETAILS: USA, Iowa in northern Clayton County, approximately 2 miles north of the town of Monona on a gravel road running east.
NEAREST TOWN: Monona
OBSERVED: A large brownish creature, very tall, was first heard and then seen to run across the road, down the ditch and the leap over a fence and run off into a cornfield. The next day I went back and checked the road and cornfield and found large smudged footprints. Upon commenting about this to some elderly residents I was informed that this creature or creatures has been in the area for better than 100 years from old reports of them and intermitent cattle and sheep mutilations. Creature had a foul smell to it.
This occurred in the summer of 1970. Sorry I'm so late, but I didn't know where to report this besides I didn't want to be branded as crazy.
ALSO NOTICED: Noting occurred prior, it was a still night, moonlite, clear sky with no unusual noises.
OTHER WITNESSES: I was with my girlfriend, need I say more.
ENVIRONMENT: Rolling hills, near a cornfield which adjoined a large woods within 4 to 6 miles of the yellow river bottom, which is heavily wooded and runs for miles with many wooded side valleys. I was with my girlfirend.
