Massive Hyena-Like Cryptid Encountered by Family in Rural Clearfield County, Pennsylvania

 

While living in rural Clearfield County, Pennsylvania, a former resident recalls an encounter his family had at home with a massive hyena-like canine after hearing a loud ruckus on the front porch.

The following account was recently forwarded to me:

"This occurred in 1977, in the Madera community of Clearfield County, Pennsylvania. I was a young teen at the time. We lived in a house in the heavily forested hills above Madera. There were very few residences in our neighborhood. The location was incredibly isolated.

My grandfather would frequently go on patrols with the local officer who worked for the Game Commission. I bring this up because of his reaction when we had our encounter, which is the reason why I am bringing this out. He was a large man, and it took a lot to shake his confidence. When grandpa would walk outdoors at night, with nothing but a pitchfork to frighten away a bear, we would often just shake our heads at him. He was familiar with the local wildlife, understood what their routines were, could predict whether, and so on.

On one particular evening, we were awaken by a loud ruckus that took place close to our front porch. We had outdoor cats who liked to hang out on the porch, and if a raccoon or other animal came near the front of the house, they would run away. The noise they made as they dispersed was rather loud, which is why we were awakened by it. I can still hear my grandpa giving one of his signature irritated sighs because he was forced to get up and check out what was going on outside We were all listening closely for the sound of the door being closed. Instead, we heard our grandpa let out a loud roar. This sent everyone of us scurrying for the stairs. He was keeping his distance from the entrance while holding the rifle in his hand, and the expression on his face might best be described as fearful. As I've already said, nothing seemed to frighten grandpa, so the sight of that expression on his face caused all of us to stand there feeling unsure.

This monster, which was outside on the porch, was gazing straight back at us, displayed absolutely no fear at all. In fact, I recall having the thought that it was furious. But upon closer inspection, it merely seemed cruel. It was definitely not a dog, but rather a canine of some kind. It had the appearance of a hyena from the front shoulders all the way up to the head, but the rear end was much smaller than the front shoulders and the head. I don't think I ever noticed there was a tail there. The fur had an unusual appearance that was patchy and shaggy all throughout. It simply didn't look like fur. It is difficult to describe. The nose was neither very long or very narrow; rather, it was short but somewhat large. The whole of the body was enormous. It was nearly as wide as our porch from the rear of its head to the front of its body. Taking this into account, it would be at least seven-feet long. It stood there staring in at us, then turned and looked towards our barn, then back at us again. After that, it went a few steps very slowly, before turning and running away. It happened so quickly that all I could see was a smear of color, and then it was gone.

We all stood there for a moment before our mother asked our father what was going on, at which point our father shouted for all of us to hurry up and go upstairs. He did not even bother to go outside to check on the animals, since he remained awake the whole night. Strangely enough, we never brought it up in conversation. After that, nobody ever mentioned it again.

It was a really special place to live, and I was fortunate enough to spend the most of my life there. But I was relieved to leave the area when I became older, since many of the occurrences that took place there were puzzling to me and could not be explained." NM

Winged Humanoid Communication Claimed by Rosemont, Illinois Experiencer

 

A Rosemont, Illinois resident claims to have had physical contact with one of these winged humanoids, and that there was also some communication. This incident will require further investigation.

The following account was received by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research investigator Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse:

Date of Sighting: July 2, 2022

Time of Sighting: Approximately 0100

Location of Sighting: Burgermeister Park, Rosemont, Illinois

Overview: Witness has apparent multiple encounters with winged humanoid and alien creatures

Case Status: Under Investigation

Case Details:

"I have had multiple encounters with what people have been calling the Mothman over the last two years. It all started with an encounter I had one time in my bedroom in April of 2020. I have experienced abductions since I was about 12-years-old and they have continued on throughout my entire life. I awoke to a ringing in my ears and the feeling of being watched from the corner of my room. I sat up in bed and rolled my eyes and remembered seeing two small figures standing just inside my bedroom and trying to poorly blend into the shadows. I went to say something when I heard the words in my head “We have something special to show you.”

I awoke to find myself on a table being examined by a group of taller beings, about 5-feet-tall and thin but with large heads and large black eyes. I was unable to move and just loudly sighed out of frustration as I have never resisted and never would. The being closer to my head slowly put his forehead to my forehead and locked eyes with me, reaching into my mind like they have done so many times before. He spoke to me and said “Our time together is drawing to a close, but we wanted to show you something not many people are given the privilege of seeing”. I remember him helping me stand up off of the table as the smaller beings now surrounded me. The next thing I remember is being surrounded by a bright light and finding myself and my companions standing in the park that is down the street from my house. I looked around and saw that we were on the far side of the gazebo and were facing the creek that borders the park (Burgermeister Park). I suddenly became very self aware that I was standing in the park in the middle of the night in an oversized shirt with nothing underneath but my undies. I started to look around to see that we were all alone when the larger being touched my arm bringing my attention back to him. I looked and standing in front of us was a very tall man, with glowing red eyes and a pair of very large black wings. I started to back away when the being grabbed my arm and told me to not be afraid, I was perfectly safe and there would be no harm. The being stepped closer, his red eyes gazing at me when I started to hear a series of clicks, like it was trying to communicate with me. I watched as it touched my arm and the next thing I remember was waking up in my bed and feeling a sort of euphoria, like everything was right for the world that would last a day or two.

My latest encounter started pretty much the same as before with a few exceptions. It was on the evening of July 2nd at about one o’clock in the morning. I was brought to the park to meet with the winged creature. I had been reading about the various sightings all over Chicago and I asked if it was the same creature being seen all over the airport and the city. I heard the word “Yes” in a deep, monotone voice in my head. I asked what it was doing here and it came back with the words “observing you, watching you” in my head. It then reached out with its arm and touched my forearm, unlike the other times I felt a slight prick and observed a drop of blood on my arm. I was shocked but not afraid and I heard the being that was at my side say “our time has come, we must go but we will always be watching.” I awoke in my bed, feeling the usual euphoria but with a slight twinge of sadness, like an old friend has left for good."

Investigators Notes:

I spoke with the witness via phone and after talking to her about her various previous abductions and encounters with the winged humanoid, I asked her to focus on the latest encounter and to describe the creature in detail.

The witness stated that the winged entity was approximately 7-8 feet tall, for reference the witness is 5’4” tall. She stated that it was thinly built, rail thin but she had the impression like it was powerful. The wings she said were smooth and membranous with an almost silky appearance to them and were hinged so as to fold in on themselves and were at least 10-11 feet in width and appeared to go down most of the body of the creature. She stated that she has seen the entity tuck its wings neatly behind its back and also use the wings to wrap around its body. She stated that the wings were mostly silent and she never remembers hearing them. She described the head as blocky and square with no pronounced features such as a nose or ears and the only thing you could see were the eyes. She described the eyes as large, bright and intense. She described the shine as brilliant red and that it seemed to be deeply sunk into the creature’s head and did not move at all. She described the arms and legs as thin and the hands ending in what looked like claws or talons that appeared to be sharp. The arms are described as thin and frail but that the look of weakness was deceiving as it appeared the arms were fully capable of defending the creature if it so chose to attack. She described the creature’s demeanor as “chill” and not aggressive and that when it moved it did in fluid motions that looked effortless despite its size and awkward appearance. The witness stated that there was a slight smell of ammonia associated with the creature when she would encounter it and that it was not overwhelming.

When asked about the creature’s demeanor, she described it as calm, calculating and emotionless much like the alien companions that accompanied her. She described the encounters as brief and that they were over just as fast as they began. I asked her if she felt afraid and she answered that maybe at first but after the first time she felt calm and that she was in no danger.

During the interview the witness received a call from a family member and the interview was cut short. I have reached out to her in regards to resuming the interview and am awaiting a response.

**Update** The witness has contacted me and we will resume the interview next Friday as the witness is away until then. Further notes will be added to the site as they are received.

NOTE: I'm going to post this series of incident as reported to Manuel for now, pending his next interview. I would also like to interview the witness. Lon

7th Winged Humanoid Sighting Reported in Bensenville, Illinois (Near Chicago-O'Hare)

 

A couple reports a 7th flying humanoid encounter in the Bensenville, Illinois area and part of the ongoing sightings around the O’Hare International Airport.

The following account was received by Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research investigator Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse:

Date of Sighting: July 16, 2022

Time of Sighting: Approximately 12:00 A.M.

Location of Sighting: Bensenville, Illinois

Number of Witnesses: Two

Case Status: Investigated

Case Details:

"I was outside with my girlfriend enjoying the pool and drinking a few beers at about midnight when we saw what looked like a large bat fly right over the top of the trees. Upon a closer look, it looked like a person with large black wings and glowing red eyes. It must have been at least 30 feet above us and appeared to be gliding with the wings not moving. We both saw it for about 5-7 seconds before we lost sight of it as it flew over the house. We were at first shocked till my girlfriend told me about the sightings of a large flying person seen all over Bensenville. We never saw it again and we were out there for another couple of hours before going inside."

Investigator Notes:

I reached out to the witness and spoke with him and his girlfriend. Both admit to having been drinking and smoking marijuana, but both claimed that they were still sober when the sighting occurred and that they were certain of what they had seen. When asked if it could have been geese, they both disagreed as they said they had seen geese fly over earlier and that geese always are making noise as they fly in a formation and they are unmistakable and difficult to confuse as something other than geese. Both were interviewed over the phone separately and both stories lined up with one another. No evidence of hoaxing or deception was found and both witnesses were adamant of what they saw. Both witnesses stated that the encounter lasted only seconds. This is the 7th flying humanoid encounter in the Bensenville, Illinois area and part of the ongoing sightings around the O’Hare International Airport.
