The Singular Fortean Society obtained the next e mail with “tall, black, batlike creature” within the topic line on February twenty sixth, 2022.
I wished to report back to you a creature that was noticed by my mom. I googled about it and observed the story of the identical creature noticed in Cape Girardeau, [Missouri], which is simply 45-60 minutes away from us in Dexter, [Missouri].
It was about [5 a.m. on February 26th, 2022], and nonetheless darkish exterior. My mother was up and occurred to be searching the window into our yard, which is a large subject. She observed a black determine operating on the bottom; you possibly can describe it as a gorilla operating. At first, she thought it was a deer, however she stored wanting and it was positively not a deer.
It then lifted off the bottom and began flying and disappeared into the woods. It was about six ft tall, massive batlike wings, darkish creature that was positively not an animal nor human. I’d say the sighting was solely 5 seconds or so.
Investigator Tobias Wayland replied to the e-mail in an try to interview the mom talked about within the report, however obtained no response.
The story referenced within the above report is probably going that of a girl who reported her sighting of a “black, humanoid determine with very giant wings and legs” in Cape Girardeau, Missouri, to the Singular Fortean Society in October of 2020.
Dexter is round 50 miles southwest of Cape Girardeau.
Wayland was in a position to interview the witness in Cape Girardeau, who stated, “Me, my two women, and my fiancé went to just a little road space the place the homes have Halloween decorations at nighttime. We went down a technique after which got here again the opposite manner to take a look at each side of the road. We did that, and we have been headed again dwelling. We got here up over a hill and after we acquired down virtually to the cease signal, that’s once I noticed it. It was like a human determine, however with massive wings—the ft and toes have been pointed to the bottom—it had scrawny legs, however muscled on the calf. The ft have been lengthy however pointy. It was possibly six ft tall. The wings weren’t open, they have been nonetheless closed.”
The creature’s wings, which she stated regarded like they have been fabricated from pores and skin, “have been actually pointy they usually have been previous its head. [The creature] simply regarded like anyone on the brink of dive off of one thing, like they’ve their arms out. The wings have been over prime of it, they usually have been pulled in, like wrapped round it. The wings weren’t so long as the physique. They got here out over the top, however have been shorter than the legs.”
Its head, she added, was “was actually little and spherical—form of pointed however spherical.”
The creature, which she estimated to have been round 100 ft from the automotive, regarded prefer it had simply “leaped from the bushes” to the best of the highway.
“About 100 ft from the cease signal to the best is a grove of tall bushes,” the girl stated. “About two to 3 acres of huge, tall bushes. That’s the place I noticed it. [The creature] regarded prefer it had leaped or dove. It was increased than the streetlights, however not actual excessive—halfway over the highway, however within the sky.”
Though the being was black, she was nonetheless in a position to see it as a result of “the sunshine from the softball subject lit it some.” The darkish determine stood out in opposition to the sky, because it was “blacker than the evening itself.”
She stated it didn’t appear to be the creature had any fur or feathers.
“It was larger than a chook, it didn’t appear to be a chook,” she defined. “After I noticed it, it was form of like [the monster from] Jeepers Creepers.”
Following the publication of that report, Wayland spoke with two sisters in November of 2020 who stated that the earlier August they’d had an uncommon encounter close to the identical space.
The 2 ladies have been driving at about 6 o’clock within the night on Lexington Avenue and had simply handed Sprigg Road in Cape Girardeau once they had their encounter, which passed off solely a few mile from the beforehand reported sighting.
Beverly Weakley, 67, was behind the wheel whereas Brenda Elfrink, 60, was within the passenger seat.
Brenda was her telephone when she heard her sister exclaim, “What was that?”
“I used to be on my telephone, I heard her and I regarded up. I acquired take a look at it, however I didn’t actually know what I used to be . It appeared prefer it was simply throughout the highway and gone. There was no place for it to land,” Brenda stated.
She described the creature as being “massive and blackish/brownish—extra brown than black, however darkish” and “formed like nothing I’ve ever seen. I noticed numerous motion like wings—I noticed extra of that than the rest.”
“I’d say it was 5 or 6 ft tall, possibly larger. I used to be form of rationalizing what I used to be . There have been no ft, I simply noticed a giant brown mass, mainly. Nevertheless it did really feel like I noticed motion, like wings or one thing,” Brenda stated. “I noticed a whipping, fluttering movement and it regarded prefer it virtually took up the entire highway. It in all probability didn’t, however that’s what it regarded wish to me. I actually questioned at first if it was a giant throw rug flying throughout the highway and whipping up within the wind or one thing, however there was no wind. It wasn’t a stormy day or something. I stated ‘Oh my god, we noticed Mothman.’”
Nevertheless, stated Brenda, her sister Beverly “noticed rather more” of the factor than she did.
In accordance with Beverly,
It regarded prefer it may need come from the aspect of the highway, there are some bushes there, however it was totally in our imaginative and prescient within the automotive. It wasn’t excessive, it was possibly eight ft off of the bottom—you possibly can see beneath it, you possibly can see over it. It was in all probability 5 to 6 ft lengthy, and it was brown. It didn’t appear to be it had feathers to me, it regarded prefer it had membranes. It regarded prefer it had webbed, membranous wings, and there have been numerous wings. Some have been flapping. They have been ribbed like umbrellas. It didn’t appear to be a pterodactyl, however it regarded like these form of wings. It was in all probability 10 to fifteen ft forward of us, and it was flying. I didn’t see an individual, like a physique form, however it actually may have been a skinny one thing that was lengthy.
Beverly stated the creature “regarded like one thing was shrouded on this bunch of wings. It acquired skinnier in direction of the final two ft, like they have been wrapped round. To me, it regarded like a physique shrouded in wings. It was positively wings, of some type, they usually regarded like they have been meat, not feathers. I didn’t see any limbs, I didn’t see a head.”
The 67-year-old described the wings shifting in an undulating vogue, “like a wave.”
“The wings have been shifting,” she defined. “It regarded prefer it had taken off and it had these little wings all through. The best way it flew was bizarre. It didn’t use all of its wings at one time. It was the strangest factor I’ve ever seen. It rippled, form of.”
These experiences have been in comparison with the Lake Michigan Mothman sightings on the time, regardless of their distance from the Nice Lakes, though winged humanoid sightings seem like, on the very least, a nationwide phenomenon by way of the geographic space by which they’re reported.
