I traveled to Ozora, MO about a week ago ( 6/17/00 1:23:21 PM ) and interviewed Bob, the gentlemen that had the sighting. My notes are attached.

His name is Bob his daughter stayed on the phone with us while I talked to Bob. He didn't know how tall it was, not very fat, skinny arms and legs. He stated, "I thought maybe it could have been like a laughing hyena's kind of face."
