COTW#192: Momo by Trendorman COTW#192: Momo by Trendorman


Momo

Momo is the name of a local legend, similar to the Bigfoot, which is reported to live in Missouri. The name Momo is short for Missouri Monster and it is reported to have a large, pumpkin-shaped head, with a very furry body, and hair covering the eyes.

First reported in July 1971, near Louisiana, Missouri by Joan Mills and Mary Ryan, Momo has been spotted up and down the Mississippi River. It is supposedly a large, 7 ft (~2.1 m) tall, hairy, black, manlike creature that eats dogs and emits a terrible odor. Some suggest it was a rogue black bear. Following sightings in 1972 beginning at 3:30 p.m. July 11, first reported by Terry, Wally, and Doris Harrison, and lasting for about 2 weeks, tracks were found and submitted to Lawrence Curtis, director of the Oklahoma City Zoo and Botanical Garden. He deemed the tracks to be a hoax.

Sightings

  • 1971 - A pack of picnickers reported that Momo came out of the surrounding woods. While they locked themselves in their car, the creature supposedly ate their food.
  • 1972 - Local children reported seeing Momo walk past them with a dead dog. Soon after, a farmer reported a flash of light, growls, and the strong odor that is associated with Momo.

You forgot to add the fact that Momo's a troll. In the 1971 sighting, it was just two people; when they locked themselves in the car, Momo walked up to the car window and just stared, his face inches away from the glass. Then he picked up a sandwich and left.

Another time, he apparently punched a kid in the face.
