Bat-Winged Humanoid Encountered Near Hamilton, Montana

2 friends encounter a bat-winged humanoid on the outskirts of Hamilton, Montana. Both witnesses described seeing the same being. Where had it come from?

This is a third-person account forwarded to me several years ago:

"This account took place in 2010. I was living in Hamilton, Montana with my current girlfriend. It was late at night and my friend and I would always go for a drive. We parked at an empty parking lot outside of a gym that was on the outskirts of town. My friend had his medical marijuana card and he would smoke while we talked about random stuff (we worked together, workplace drama was usually the discussion). After we were done hanging out I started my car to head back into town. We started heading towards the outlet to take a right onto the main street. I was about 50 feet away from the outlet when I decided the mood called for some loud music. To give you an idea as to what our field of view was, the outlet had two white fences on each side that spanned the property. It was one of those fences that had two logs with spaces in between them so vision was partially blocked on the right and left side (granted it was pretty damn dark).

That is when sh*t hit the fan. Out of the corner of my eye I see what appeared to be a dusty brown ball of plastic or garbage that rolled into view from the other side of the right fence. We were driving closer as this was happening but as soon as I got a better look, I knew this was not a piece of garbage blowing in the wind. I immediately realized it was a winged flesh-like creature that appeared to have crash landed during flight. I thought my eyes were deceiving me and I immediately turned to my friend who let out one of the most blood curdling screams I have heard in my entire life. I kept looking at him and looking back at this "thing." My friend was so scared he flew his legs into the air (up against the passenger window and windshield) as if that would shield him from this creature we were approaching. I kept repeating, "WHAT IS THAT, WHAT IS THAT?" As soon as the creature came to its senses it planted its feet and took off flying in the opposite direction of my car. At this point I stopped the car and all I remember is heavy breathing from both my friend and I (from the adrenaline) as we watched the silhouette of this thing fly away. The wing-span on this creature was at LEAST 6-8 feet wide. It seemed to have webbing like a bat (no feathers). We watched it until it was not visible which took a good while (Montana still has a decent amount of light pollution and we could see the contrast of this creature in the sky for 2-3 minutes before it disappeared).

I remember my friend told me, "Please just take me home." We took off and headed back into town. I just kept asking, "What was that, what was that?" I don't think there were more than a few words spoken between us at that point. I just kept asking, "What was that, what was that?" He would respond with, "I don't f*cking know man."

I dropped him off. I went home and told my girlfriend who was laughing at how animated and serious I was when telling her what happened. The next day, I woke up and immediately called him. I asked him, "What did you see?" I wanted him to tell me first so that what I had to say did not influence him in his recollection of this creature. He told me, "It was a flesh-like creature. It was not a bird, there were no feathers." I asked him, "What color was it?" He told me, "Brown-ish and...." I said, "sort of grey?" He said, "OMG, yes."

I no longer talk to this friend as he slipped into a unfortunate issue with prescription pills. I wish we still had a friendship as I have wanted to talk to him about this event since it has happened. We both saw the exact same thing. I am the type of person to laugh in the face of ghost/paranormal stuff. If I don't see it, I don't believe it. I still to this day cannot explain what I saw, I still get chills when thinking about my friends scream. The way I describe this thing is a gigantic bat/humanoid with wings. There was not one feather on this flying creature (I mention this because anyone I tell this story to tells me I probably saw a bird of some sort). I remember this creature being slightly hairy.

My theory as to why it was rolling around on the ground as if it crash landed out of the sky? I think my subwoofer/sound system might have messed with its navigation and that is another reason I feel it might have been a gigantic bat. Can you help explain what I might have seen? Has anyone had similar experience with gigantic bat-like creatures?

It might be worth mentioning Rocky Mountain Labs is in Hamilton, MT. This is one of the highest security laboratories in the world. My ex-boss's ex-husband works there and the only thing she knew about this job was that he took care of the animals. The deadliest diseases are held in this lab and there are monkeys and other animals that are used for testing." SC

Unknown Humanoid (Skinwalker?) Runs Parallel to Vehicle at High Speed

A Mexican man was driving, along with his wife, late at night on a desert road when he encounters an unknown humanoid that literally runs parallel to his vehicle at high speed.

The following account was recent forwarded to me:

"About 15 years ago I heard about a weird account from a friend. This was in a small town in Oklahoma with a decent sized Native population. Anyway, this guy is actually Mexican. Nicest dude you would ever want to meet. Was about 35 at the time. Had a family. Honest good-natured guy that I could never see making something up for no reason.

It was late one night and we were talking about an abandoned building at the campus of a small community college that used to be housing. Supposedly it was haunted. A friend and I wanted to sneak in and check it out. He advised us not to and mentioned that he once lived in an apartment on campus there and some strange stuff happened. Stuff like hearing footsteps upstairs in a different apartment and a fridge opening and closing. Then someone mentioned the upstairs was empty. He figured someone was squatting there. So at around 1:00 am he heard it and grabbed a bat. There was a staircase that led up there, so no way someone could have gotten out by the time he started up. He opened the door, but there was nothing other than an old non-working fridge on the opposite end. He didn't stay long after his doors began to open and shut on their own.

But he claimed that wasn't nearly as freaky as the last time he was in Mexico. He was driving back to the US after visiting family. His wife was in the passenger seat asleep. He wasn't too far from the border, so he decided to keep driving a little after midnight instead of stopping somewhere for the night. It was sort of a desert type road. He says he was going about 65 mph when he noticed something in his peripheral vision in the darkness out the passenger window. Something was out there, and it was keeping up with him.

Obviously this shook him up. He hit the gas, 70 mph, 75, 80, 85. It was still keeping up! At this point, it was almost too absurd that he thought it was just his tiredness playing tricks on his eyes. Until it changed directions. Instead of moving parallel with his car, it began to angle back toward the road, in a manner to intercept the vehicle. As it got closer, more light hit it and he said in no uncertain terms, it looked like a human. It was still slightly shadowed from the darkness, but he was certain it was a humanoid form. He accelerated to 90 mph and a few seconds later, it angled back into the darkness and was gone.

As he finished the story, I could tell his eyes were welled up and his hands were trembling. And this was a tough, no BS dude. It physically struck him to the core just to recall it. Not surprisingly, he said he is never going back to Mexico.

This is very similar to skinwalker accounts I have heard from friends and family on the reservation." S
