You can find a fascinating new article on so-called "Ghost Animals" that has been written by our Oklahoma representative, Melissa Miller.

Melissa explains: "This post isn't about Oklahoma, for once; it's about our close neighbor Missouri, where I've spent a while wandering around the wilderness. To make a long story short, I'll skip the part about the hippy commune and almost drowning in a cave (that's the 'very close to losing' part; would also like to point out that said cave is connected to a sinkhole called Devil's Well, if you're one of those who is interested in strange happenings at 'devil' places) and go straight to what I learned about the state's strange critters. In my inquiries into local folklore I was surprised to discover that a lot of ghost stories in Missouri revolve around animals. If a ghost animal isn't the definition of Fortean Zoology, I don't know what is."

And, if that has caught your attention, here's the rest of Melissa's post.
