A Greensburg, Indiana resident recalls a sighting of a bat-winged humanoid that was in a tree in his backyard. There was no sound and he never saw it fly away.

I received the following account:

"Hello, sir. This incident happened around 9 years ago in 2014 during the summer. At that time, we lived in a small subdivision near Greensburg, Indiana (Decatur County). My house was in front of a small forest area, so the backyard is a large clearing with lots of trees behind it, which is bordered by a fence my father built. In the backyard, there is also a greenhouse and a shed. Behind the trees is a small trailer home park.

I remember going outside on a cloudy day to get my dog since he was outside. He was outside for way longer than usual so I got worried and went to take a look.

As I went down the balcony steps to go into the backyard my dog instantly ran towards the trees and started to bark. I looked up at the trees and saw a purplish-colored humanoid figure about 6 feet tall with wings. The creature most likely saw me, and it climbed through the trees and bushes and attempted to fly up, but it couldn’t since the trees were so thick. I ran up the stairs to the balcony and watched my dog continue to bark. The creature had disappeared so I was worried about where it had gone.

I’m not sure what happened after this as my memory is quite foggy of this incident, but I’m guessing that I ran inside and hid.

I have no idea what this was, but I was intrigued by the winged humanoid sightings in the Chicago area and thought I'd write you. The shade of this being was distinctly purple in color and the membrane wings were bat-shaped. The head was fairly large compared to the body, but that was the extent of any details that I could see. It never made any sounds. I didn't see the wings fully unfurled." C
