Boone County Missouri (Class A) BFRO

April 2014

I have no problems with posting the incident. It is what happened. Spring of 2014. South Boone Country Missouri. Driving down River Road about 100 yards south of Cooper's Landing along the Missouri River. We Were heading out early to turkey hunt in Hartsburg Conservation Area. It was about 6:30 am, just getting light. I was driving with my brother in law sitting beside me. About 30 yards in front of us a large being jumped out of the Missouri River onto the road. It was black and wet. My headlights reflected off of the fur. It jumped onto the road and jumped again up to the bluff. It was about 8 foot tall by the trees that were there by the river. We stopped and looked up the bluff to see or hear it moving but, nothing happened. The river level was high. I don't know what could swim in the torrents and drift wood rushing in it. I had never seen a wild animal like it. It moved very animated in it's spring off of the road up the bluff. I will never forget it.
