The Singular Fortean Society acquired the next e-mail with “tall, black, batlike creature” within the topic line on February twenty sixth, 2022.
I needed to report back to you a creature that was noticed by my mom. I googled about it and seen the story of the identical creature noticed in Cape Girardeau, [Missouri], which is just 45-60 minutes away from us in Dexter, [Missouri].
It was about [5 a.m. on February 26th, 2022], and nonetheless darkish outdoors. My mother was up and occurred to be searching the window into our yard, which is a big discipline. She seen a black determine operating on the bottom; you can describe it as a gorilla operating. At first, she thought it was a deer, however she saved trying and it was undoubtedly not a deer.
It then lifted off the bottom and began flying and disappeared into the woods. It was about six toes tall, large batlike wings, darkish creature that was undoubtedly not an animal nor human. I might say the sighting was solely 5 seconds or so.
Investigator Tobias Wayland replied to the e-mail in an try and interview the mom talked about within the report, however acquired 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 capable of interview the witness in Cape Girardeau, who mentioned, “Me, my two ladies, and my fiancé went to just a little road space the place the homes have Halloween decorations at nighttime. We went down a method after which got here again the opposite means to take a look at each side of the road. We did that, and we had been headed again residence. We got here up over a hill and once we obtained down nearly to the cease signal, that’s after I noticed it. It was like a human determine, however with large wings—the toes and toes had been pointed to the bottom—it had scrawny legs, however muscled on the calf. The toes had been lengthy however pointy. It was perhaps six toes tall. The wings weren’t open, they had been nonetheless closed.”
The creature’s wings, which she mentioned appeared like they had been fabricated from pores and skin, “had been actually pointy and so they had been previous its head. [The creature] simply appeared like someone on the brink of dive off of one thing, like they’ve their palms out. The wings had been over prime of it, and so they had been pulled in, like wrapped round it. The wings weren’t so long as the physique. They got here out over the pinnacle, however had been shorter than the legs.”
Its head, she added, was “was actually little and spherical—sort of pointed however spherical.”
The creature, which she estimated to have been round 100 toes from the automobile, appeared prefer it had simply “leaped from the timber” to the correct of the street.
“About 100 toes from the cease signal to the correct is a grove of tall timber,” the girl mentioned. “About two to 3 acres of huge, tall timber. That’s the place I noticed it. [The creature] appeared prefer it had leaped or dove. It was larger than the streetlights, however not actual excessive—halfway over the street, however within the sky.”
Though the being was black, she was nonetheless capable of see it as a result of “the sunshine from the softball discipline lit it some.” The darkish determine stood out in opposition to the sky, because it was “blacker than the evening itself.”
She mentioned it didn’t appear like the creature had any fur or feathers.
“It was greater than a fowl, it didn’t appear like a fowl,” she defined. “After I noticed it, it was sort of like [the monster from] Jeepers Creepers.”
Following the publication of that report, Wayland spoke with two sisters in November of 2020 who mentioned that the earlier August they’d had an uncommon encounter close to the identical space.
The 2 girls had been driving at about 6 o’clock within the night on Lexington Avenue and had simply handed Sprigg Avenue in Cape Girardeau once they had their encounter, which happened solely a couple of 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 cellphone when she heard her sister exclaim, “What was that?”
“I used to be on my cellphone, I heard her and I appeared up. I obtained a great take a look at it, however I didn’t actually know what I used to be . It appeared prefer it was simply throughout the street and gone. There was no place for it to land,” Brenda mentioned.
She described the creature as being “large 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 toes tall, perhaps greater. I used to be sort of rationalizing what I used to be . There have been no toes, I simply noticed a giant brown mass, mainly. Nevertheless it did really feel like I noticed motion, like wings or one thing,” Brenda mentioned. “I noticed a whipping, fluttering movement and it appeared prefer it nearly took up the entire street. It most likely didn’t, however that’s what it appeared prefer to me. I actually puzzled at first if it was a giant throw rug flying throughout the street and whipping up within the wind or one thing, however there was no wind. It wasn’t a stormy day or something. I mentioned ‘Oh my god, we noticed Mothman.'”
Nonetheless, mentioned Brenda, her sister Beverly “noticed far more” of the factor than she did.
Based on Beverly,
It appeared prefer it might need come from the facet of the street, there are some timber there, however it was totally in our imaginative and prescient within the automobile. It wasn’t excessive, it was perhaps eight toes off of the bottom—you can see beneath it, you can see over it. It was most likely 5 to 6 toes lengthy, and it was brown. It didn’t appear like it had feathers to me, it appeared prefer it had membranes. It appeared prefer it had webbed, membranous wings, and there have been numerous wings. Some had been flapping. They had been ribbed like umbrellas. It didn’t appear like a pterodactyl, however it appeared like these sort of wings. It was most likely 10 to fifteen toes forward of us, and it was flying. I didn’t see an individual, like a physique form, however it definitely might have been a skinny one thing that was lengthy.
Beverly mentioned the creature “appeared like one thing was shrouded on this bunch of wings. It obtained skinnier in direction of the final two toes, like they had been wrapped round. To me, it appeared like a physique shrouded in wings. It was undoubtedly wings, of some kind, and so they appeared like they had 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 trend, “like a wave.”
“The wings had been shifting,” she defined. “It appeared 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, sort of.”
These experiences had been in comparison with the Lake Michigan Mothman sightings on the time, regardless of their distance from the Nice Lakes, though winged humanoid sightings look like, on the very least, a nationwide phenomenon by way of the geographic space during which they’re reported.
