7 Ft. Tall Bat-Like Creature Perched On Downtown Chicago Streetlamp


The following account was received by Manuel Navarette at UFO Clearinghouse:

I was leaving work at about 8:45 PM CT on Thursday night (July 27, 2017) in The Loop (central business section of downtown Chicago). As I walked the two blocks to the nearest train station to go home, I saw a large bat-like creature that was perched on top of one the streetlight poles across the street from the Harold Washington Library. This creature stood about 7 ft tall and was sitting there motionless.

This creature had a pair of glowing red eyes that appear to be fixated on something across the street. It stood there for about 6 seconds. That’s when I saw a flash from a group of kids on the sidewalk as someone was taking a picture of this thing. It then spread open a large pair of wings flapped them a couple of times and took off into the air. The girls from that group of kids screamed and they all took off running.

I saw as it shot up and over the library and was gone...in the matter of about two seconds. I was very shaken up by what I saw and talked to my pastor about it at church on Saturday. It was he who pointed me in the direction of this site where I can make this report. Thank you.
