Pterodactyl-Like 'Bird' Observed Flying Near Alamogordo, New Mexico


The witness and his brother were recently driving near his home outside of Alamogordo, New Mexico. They noticed a large Pterodactyl-like creature flying near them and were shocked by the sighting.

Here is the initial email that was sent:

"I have to be honest, I wasn't sure who to contact about this but felt I had to report it to someone. On September 11, 2022, my brother and I witnessed what I can only begin to describe as a Pterodactyl-like "bird" flying north to south. We saw the creature from approximately 100 feet away, and it was about 50 feet off of the ground. It appeared to be 6-8 feet long, grayish in color, with a long dark beak (appx 1 1/2 feet long). Its wings were very long and tapered to a point. The tail was very strange as it appeared to be maybe 2-3 feet long, straight and smooth, a couple inches around. At the end of the tail was some kind of roundish tip about the size of a baseball. I couldn't discern any feathers, the animal appeared grey and smooth. 

Thank you for your time. I just had to report this to someone." E

I contacted the witness by telephone:

"E" states that he and his brother were driving in his neighborhood just outside of the city of Alamogordo, New Mexico on the early evening of September 11, 2022. For those unfamiliar with the location, Alamogordo is in the Tularosa Basin of the Chihuahuan Desert, it is bordered on the east by the Sacramento Mountains and to the west by Holloman Air Force Base. It is also near the White Sands Missile Range and National Park.

Flying near them was, what the witness described as what he first thought was an oversized Pelican. It was flying at an altitude of approximately 50 feet and close enough for him and his brother to distinguish detail.

The long beak was very pronounced and long. The entire body was about 8 feet long with membrane wings that were long and tapered to a point. The wingspan was at least 12 feet. The entire body was grayish in color. There was no hair, just smooth skin. There was also a long tail, about the thickness and length of a baseball bat with a bulb-shaped formation on the end.

It was flying north to south. It was deliberately and slowly flapping its wings while maintaining height and speed. Both witnesses were shocked at what they were observing and felt compelled to report the incident. I received the written report that same evening.

The witness later stated that he had been outside grilling the night before. At the time he heard several loud screeches coming from a distance and above, but could not determine what it was. There is an area near his home that is somewhat swampy with old-growth trees. He plans to investigate the location for evidence. Lon

Gruesome 'Cryptid Canine' Encountered in Berks County, Pennsylvania (FULL REPORT)


For the past several weeks, I have been referring to a cryptid canine case that was submitted to me by the witness 'MH.' Most of the particulars are included in the witness' written report. The Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research team and I have talked to the witness on numerous occasions:

"This sighting happened on 4/30/22 in Birdsboro, Pennsylvania in the Birdsboro Preserve. This area is just north of French Creek State Park and the forests intersect with one another. There are roughly 15 to 20 square miles of dense natural woodlands in this area. It is one of the largest forest areas in southeastern PA.

It was a crystal clear warm spring day and my 12-year-old daughter wanted to learn trout fishing. We decided to go up to Hay Creek which runs for 13 miles through French Creek State Park and through the Birdsboro Preserve. We parked at the north end of the preserve on Old Route 82, now called Hay Creek Road.

We hiked up into the old road past the still active larger quarry and continued up about a half mile past it. We found a spot where she could practice wading In the steam in a safe shallow area of the stream with semi-fast water. There were a lot of people walking hiking and horse back riding that day and not a cloud in the sky.

We fished this spot for about 2 hours or so slowly moving back down the stream. At one point while I was sitting on the bank enjoying the stream and nature while my daughter was fishing I heard a loud crash; like a tree was falling over behind us. It was a bit strange because I didn’t hear any chainsaws and this sounded like a huge tree was coming down. It was only a few hundred feet behind us and it was super loud. Being an avid extreme outdoorsman for 3+ decades you know when things seem out of place. This was totally different from a tree falling over and then silence.

This went on for about 2 minutes and I stood up and looked around in the direction the sound was coming from but saw nothing. I said to myself that was a bit strange and it just stopped. 

About 30 minutes later I heard the same thing and again this went on for like 2 minutes again. Now I’m puzzled and was like what the hell is going on this is not normal. I said to my daughter lets start heading back down the stream and find another spot. I still did not see anything unusual but was on alert. I thought to myself it could be deer up in the back across the road but this sounded

Then I heard a giant crashing through the woods as it was very loud. This time it was definitely closer to us. We walked about 200 yards down the trail and we started hearing this again and it was even closer than the past 2 times. We stopped and looked up towards the quarry in the direction of the sound but still saw nothing.

I said we will cross the stream and fish down around the bend. The spot where you cross the stream is about 30 feet wide and very slippery. We took it slow because the water was a bit high for my daughter. We were about halfway across and all hell broke loose with the sound of tree branches breaking again. It took us about 90 seconds to cross the stream and I was holding her hand to help her. The whole time this sound is still going on and I’m looking back but see nothing because we are about 20 feet below the quarry where the old bridge was. Where we crossed the stream there is about a 6 to seven-foot berm to step up to the road level.

I get up first and help my daughter get up with my hand when I see something moving in the distance out of my peripheral vision. I turn and look and see nothing at first. Then in the distance where this sound is coming from I lock onto a 40-foot pine tree at the top of the quarry swaying violently side to side at least 5 feet each way.

I pointed to my daughter and said, 'Holy crap what the hell is that? Look! The next 40 to 50 seconds would change my life forever.

We were watching the pine tree shake for about 10 to 15 seconds. Then I saw what I thought was an arm reaching out of the tree. It grabbed a bird which I think was a turkey buzzard. All of a sudden this thing jumps from the pine tree to a big oak tree about 10 feet away and starts climbing on the outside of the canopy. It pivoted around somewhat like a spider on the top of the canopy and disappears into the branches of this large oak tree. Keep in mind the leaves are just starting to bud on the trees and we can see movement in the tree branches.

This is about 200 to 300 feet away. The whole time branches are breaking, very large branches about 2 inches thick. This goes on for about 10 or more seconds and then this thing jumps out of the tree. Now, these trees are at least 40 high. Plus it falls another 15 to 20 feet onto a 60-degree incline of rocks. So about 60 or so feet this thing fell.

I thought the thing was dead. I'll never forget the sound of the impact. This thing hit super hard and rocks started flying down the side of this quarry incline at least 10 feet. When it fell out of the tree this creature landed on all 4s.

This thing is lying flat and is a bit dazed and or winded. Then this thing stands up bipedally on its 2 hind legs and is about 10 to 12 feet in height.

I'm thinking that this thing should be dead. I'm thinking bear, mountain lion, bigfoot? So this thing stands up. And then goes back on all 4s and jumps like a toad or a frog does. This thing clears 20 feet of ground in total, not even trying, as well as jumps in height about 8 to10 feet in one jump.

It was on all 4s again, flat like a frog and then it dropped this bird that it had in its left hand. Keep in mind the thing landed facing away from us on the right side of us with its back to us and running away parallel to our left. It then reaches out with its left hand and grabs the bird and pulls it back into its chest.

The arms on this thing are at least 6 feet plus in length. It has human-like hands and legs. The hands have at least 2 to 3-inch claws on the fingers, as well as the feet.

As it grabbed the bird it turned its head to the side and I saw the side of the head and face. This thing was bald from the neck up. It had a canine-style snout or nose with an upper jaw with an overhang with very long upper teeth like fangs on a werewolf. No joke about it.

This thing when it stood up from heel to hip was 6 to 7 feet in height, and from hip to shoulder was another 3 feet. From heel to top of its head was 10 to 13 feet easy. The head was like a human's head but had pointed ears like a dog's but not on top of the head. It had ears where a human has them but longer and pointed. It had fur like a deer in length, very short brown, grey, and black. The skin was grey in color. This creature was very skinny though. Like it was starving or not healthy. Very skinny except the forearms and its legs were very tone. It did not have a tail.

This thing stands up again bipedally and takes a step, like a track runner jumping a hurdle, and clearsa15 foot rock face again, easily 6 to 7 feet in height and about 15 feet in length. It took another 5 to 6 steps and it went crashing through the woods and we never saw it again.

Witness sketch

I stood there in total disbelief and I was trying to process what the hell this thing was.

I'm a no-fear kind of guy and this thing scared the living crap out of me. I’m standing there completely frozen with fear trying to make sense of what the hell just happened. I almost lost myself with fear because I never had that type of fear ever and I had to talk myself out of it.

After about 2 minutes of sheer confusion, I snapped out of the fear factor and I was now in adrenaline survival mode. My number one concern was my daughter and us getting out of there alive because this thing ran the same way we had to walk to reach my car.

Keep in mind this was a busy day with people out from being cooped up all winter. Whatever this thing is violent and super strong to the point the right thing to do is warn people of this thing. I'll tell you this, this thing makes a full-grown tiger look like a mouse and that is no joke. My daughter was confused about what had happened. I was very concerned for her safety.

As we were slowly walking back I actually started to call 911 but never did because no one would believe me and think I was mad out of my mind. I saw a few people on the way back and I asked them if they had seen a big animal come down this way and they all said no.

A message for all the people out there. One thing I want to say is this, I have been in a lot of national parks and state forests and never once seen anything like this creature. Take everything I thought I knew about the wilderness and throw it right out the window and start over.

Vincent Richardson's rendering of the cryptid canine

Hats off to Lon and all you people who bring these cryptids to the masses. These things are 1000% real and they are in your backyard not in some national park or some extreme remote area. They are very close to us so please be mindful of your surroundings. I'll never step in the woods without a firearm ever again. This has changed my life and I’m on an amazing journey to find serious answers. And for all of you who have seen crazy creatures and struggle with it: YOU'RE NOT ALONE. Welcome to the CLUB OF NO RETURN. Keep an open mind and talk to good people who can help you."

Massive 'Bipedal Cryptid Canine' Tracked & Killed by Pennsylvania State Police

A northeast Pennsylvania man recalls a bizarre incident with a massive bipedal cryptid canine. It had killed several guard dogs and was supposedly tracked and killed by state police.

I recently received the following account:

"I was recently told by a friend that you investigate strange canine sightings in Pennsylvania. I live in the northeastern part of the state, in rural Monroe County in the Poconos. I have a bipedal wolf account. This occurred on September 3, 1975. I now own the property and still live there.

My father and I were traveling in our family station wagon on a dirt road on our property. When we first saw this creature it had come out of heavy woods and crossed the road while on all fours. We stopped the car and watched it. When it reached the north boundary of our field it stood up on its hind legs. It tried to hide between two mulberry trees. Its head touched a branch that was approximately 12 feet off the ground. My father would later measure its height.

It then ran south, dropping down on all fours. It was running at an unbelievable speed. It covered 100-plus yards and ran out of the southern boundary of our field into the road directly in front of us. From its nose to the tip of its tail it covered the county road from shoulder to shoulder approximately 18 feet! Its left shoulder was about one foot above the center of the hood of our car. When measured it was three feet off the ground putting its left shoulder at approximately four feet tall.

As it ran in front of us crossing the road it turned its head toward us and snarled showing all of its teeth including the canines that were at least six inches long. It had huge amber eyes and just looked plain evil.

The neighbor who owned the woods where the creature had come out of had about 12 guard dogs. He lived alone (we called him 'Mr. Hermit') and owned about 100 acres which included several long retired slate quarry holes that were all filled with clear blue water and huge fish. The woods were also full of deer. By the way, our newly built home was about 50 yards west of where it ran south across the road.

A few nights after this incident, at about 1am in the morning, all hell broke loose! We could hear the neighbor's guard dogs fighting, madly yelping, and being slaughtered. Mr. Hermit opened up with a 12-gauge and kept firing. We would find out later that 9 of his 12 guard dogs were killed.

Our area was under Pennsylvania State Police jurisdiction (there was no local sheriff or police force). Several troopers showed up that night. Then at daybreak, a tactical team arrived in a helicopter, which landed in our field. My father worked the third shift at the time (at Ingersoll Rand) and was just getting home. My father immediately walked up to Mr. Hermit's property. He crossed our field and then directly up his driveway. The State Police refused to let him go any further. My mother was so scared of the ordeal that we had heard the previous night, so she decided to keep us home from school.

Shortly after I saw my father disappear up Mr. Hermit's driveway, small arms fire erupted. We're all looking out our kitchen window in anticipation of the results. The State Police helicopter took off and hovered over Mr. Hermit's property. It then dipped very low and then lifted something huge wrapped in a tarp with a cargo net around it.

My father soon returned and told us that the State Police told him that he was to forget about what we saw. The barracks commander stopped in on his way out to reinforce this. We pestered my father to tell us what it was they shot and killed. This was the only time I had ever seen fear in his eyes. All he said was that he saw them shoot and kill an extremely large wolf. 

He never spoke of the incident again, nor would he acknowledge my inquiries about it. I eavesdropped on him and my mother talking about it after we kids were supposed to be asleep. He said there were nine dead guard dogs and that 12-gauge shotgun shells were everywhere.

By the next night, there was a loaded 12-gauge shotgun at every entrance door with double odd buckshot. My mom had a new handgun at the ready. My father got off the night shift very soon after this incident. There have been no other incidences with bipedal wolves in our area." M

NOTE: I informed the witness that the Pocono area is still well-known for bipedal cryptid canine sightings. I have reported several over the past decade. Lon

Screeching Bat-Winged Humanoid & UFO Observed in Rockford, Illinois


The Singular Fortean Society was contacted recently by Shana Clippert, 27, who said that she and her mother had seen both a massive, black, winged humanoid and a glowing UFO in Rockford, Illinois, during the early morning hours of June 20th.

Shana said that she had not previously been aware of the other sightings in her area, and only found the Singular Fortean Society after going online following her own encounter to try and find similar reports.

Both of her sightings were either on or near Fork Kent Creek, which Shana referred to as a “canal” in her testimony.

They began at approximately 1 a.m. when Shana and her mother, Barbera, were outside of her apartment.

"There’s my parking lot, we were facing toward my building, and next to that, between me and the canal, there’s a parking lot that has nothing, just like a lot, and then there’s the canal. I could see the overpass bridge that runs down Auburn over the canal. Across from that is a shop that has lights on it and there’s a very, very well-lit, I'm not sure what it is, a hauling business, I think, they have trucks and garage doors and stuff. Then there’s a pretty thin tree line on the canal and there’s nothing on my side of the canal.

It is reasonably well-lit. When [the creature] crawled out [of the canal], I could see the cement guardrail walls of the canal because all the lights on this side from that shop and the light reflecting from the lights that are on the side of my building. The trees are dark.

I heard a screech that made me turn my head in that direction. Then it looked like it crawled from out of the canal because I saw this black silhouette following up and onto the embankment. That’s when you could see the black silhouette against the light on the other side [of the canal]. You could clearly see this black blob moving across.

And when my mom looked over, because she saw something in the corner of her eye, and obviously I was already looking over there, she saw the black blob, and then it took flight within the tree line. We could clearly see the shape of the wings and the size of this thing going through the tree line. Obviously, I can’t say it was through the tree line, it could have been just above the canal, like the water. But we saw it completely pass like we saw it … going through."

Shana told investigator Tobias Wayland that the creature reminded her of the character Marcus from the film Underworld, because of its humanoid appearance and batlike wings.

"It was massive; like hunched over, when it was coming out of the canal, it looked like the size of our dumpster that we have in the back of our apartment building. It was huge. I have no clue what to even compare it to. It was super tall and big. When it walked, when it was on the ground, it was like hunched over and crouched, it looked like this massive blob," she said. "When it initially left the ground, it flapped [its wings], and it wasn’t a super-fast flap, because the wings were so big. The canal goes down into a more vegetative spot, so we lost sight of it there."

Shana estimated the creature’s wingspan to be 12 feet and described the sound it made as a “dinosaur’s screech, like a raptor screech.”

“I didn’t see any glowing red eyes or anything like everybody else is describing, but it flew away from us, and we were looking at its profile most of the time or its back,” she said. “I was freaking out. It was pitch black.”

The winged entity "flew halfway up the trees, so it was directly in the tree line and then stayed steady all the way down," she said. " It couldn’t have been in the trees because of the size of its wingspan, but it could have been over the canal and just followed the canal down. There’s water down there, but it’s a very small like a creek, and then there’s a walkway that runs down it that you can go all the way down into this park that’s in the back neighborhoods. Then there’s these huge storm drains, but they’re huge like you can just walk in there. You might have to duck your head a little bit, but you can walk in there. I don’t know if it crawled out of there, but where else could it be?

All in all, the sighting lasted “maybe two or three minutes,” Shana said.

Soon after the winged humanoid sighting, Shana and her mother saw something else equally inexplicable in the sky.

"We walked to this broken-down fence that separates my area from this lot that’s on the other side, between us and the canal. We were out there walking, and I asked my roommate to come downstairs and bring a flashlight so we can shine it in the tree line and see if we see anything. She came down in 15 minutes, didn’t see anything, and we drove down to the park, but the trees are so dense down there that even if there was something in there, we wouldn’t have seen it.

When we drove back, she went to the gas station for about 10 minutes, but my mom and I were still outside and this light ... almost looked like it was glowing. It looked as if you were to see a sort of stingray, like a glowing stingray in the air. It materialized above the air, like maybe 50 to 60 feet in the air above the empty lot, and then it had wings but they were very fluid moving, very slow moving, and very thin, like if you look on the side of a stingray.

We could see that thing almost glowing against the dark sky. And there was nothing that it could have reflected off of—it was a clear sky—or that could have caused that, like a spotlight, it was an actual physical thing there, in the air.

It didn’t look white, it looked [like] light, almost like a translucent whitish light.

It wasn’t [just a white object], because the sky was pitch black. We saw the whole glowing silhouette and it flew very smoothly and fluidly over to the street—it generally stayed the same height in the air. Then it turned around and came back over and literally disappeared in the same spot it materialized. It didn’t go down, it didn’t go up, it just vanished."

Shana guessed that the object was about six feet in length and “very skinny.”

She elaborated on her description of the glowing object, explaining that although it did not look precisely like a stingray, that was the best way she could describe it.

"It didn’t have a tail. I describe it as a stingray because it was flat. I don’t know how wide it was or if it was just this skinny, long thing, but if you’re looking at the back of a stingray at eye level, it’s flat and it’s got pointed ends where the edges are flat ends and then it’s thicker in the body and thinner in the wings. It was so fluid and smooth and slow-moving," she said. "It was a long, thin object. It didn’t have the jerky movements of the other thing. It was very fluid, like a stingray moving in the water."

Shana was certain the glowing UFO couldn't have had any prosaic explanation, such as a spotlight.

"There was nothing for light to reflect off of. There’re no power cords or anything that run all the way down. It was like seeing electricity or a glowing orb at night, but it was long and skinny. And it moved like it was flapping wings, but it was very fluid, very smooth movement."

Historical weather data confirms that the sky was clear at the time of her sighting, nor was there any wind to blow something that could have been misidentified, like a balloon.

As for the winged creature, when asked if it could have been a known animal indigenous to the area, Shana responded that she had considered that but was sure it was not.

I know what foxes and coyotes sound like, in mating season and fights, stuff like that.

Generally, we hear dogs barking in our neighborhood. I know what it sounds like when dogs are fighting. It didn’t sound like anything. It wasn’t a person screaming, it wasn’t animals or anything, and then for me to hear the screech and look over and see that thing ... I just put two and two together that this creature is the thing that made the noise.

I thought about herons and cranes and stuff like that, the only difference is that the size of it, for one thing, because the wings were huge, and there was no break in the wings, there was no color to it, it was pitch black. Even when it was on the side of the embankment where the lights are, it was completely pitch black. You could see a clear outline of it.

You know how those birds usually have really skinny legs? Well, this was thick, too thick to be a heron or a crane. The thickness of the wings and the whole size of the body itself. When it was hunched over ... I couldn’t clearly see the outline of the head or anything. It was just this hunched over, curled together on all fours sort of thing. It didn’t have any long skinny legs or heads protruding, it was just this huge black mass.

The experience left both Shana and her mother upset and frightened, but they both feel strongly about what they experienced and are willing to go on the record about it.

“I was panicking [when the UFO appeared],” she said. “I jumped behind my mom, and I had this hunting knife. I don’t know what I was going to do with it, it didn’t come near us. It was weird that we were out there looking for whatever that creature was that flew away, and then we see this glowing thing in the sky.”

Although they haven’t seen anything like that since, the experience did lend a new, unsettling perspective to something that had happened just a week prior.

“About a week beforehand, I was walking up my back stairs, again it was late, my mom was sitting downstairs waiting for me to unlock my door, and I heard that screech,” Shana said.

This is one of several sightings of winged humanoids that have come out of Rockford over the past several years.
