Multiple 'Winged Humanoid' Eyewitnesses in Toledo, Ohio


Youtuber Terri Lynn describes her sighting of a winged humanoid creature on July 4, 2008 in Toledo, Ohio:

“The title, it's true, I saw Mothman and, no, not recently...not one of these recent sightings that people are talking about. That is what made me decide to go ahead and talk about it because...this is so embarrassing. I mean, you go around telling people that you seen a half human / half moth or whatever he is creature and they tend to look at you like you're crazy. But I did see him.

This was back in 2008, 4th of July, Toledo, Ohio, which is Northwest Ohio, right in this corner on the Michigan line, like, right in the Ohio / Michigan border-line. Okay, so, we had just finished watching the fireworks. All the cars were leaving and we decided to sit back and just wait for the cars to leave so that we didn't have to fight the traffic and we could just hang out with the family a little bit longer. My boyfriend at the time was laying on the blanket on his back, just kind of looking up at the stars, hanging out. But after awhile, he looked up and he was like, 'Hey, hey, you guys, what the hell is that?' So I was the first one to pay attention to him and I looked up and there was, like, this plane going by and I'm like, 'It's a plane, what are you talking about?' He's like, 'No, no, Terri, that!' And there was like this huge black mass that was clearly blacking out the light from the stars as it flew by, but it was flying really slow. I do remember that, like it was slowly flying but not like a bird. Like, a bird, when they fly, they have to fly fast. This thing was super slow and huge, like, think of how big you would think of a pterodactyl being, that's how big this thing was. And it had wings that were, like, really thin, like a pterodactyl's wings. That stuck out to me the most was the wings like how thin and see-through they kinda were. Like, they weren't see-through but like pterodactyl wings. And the body was like stubby but not short because, trust me, this thing was huge but it was like stubby kind of like a gargoyle. That's what it reminded me of - a gargoyle with pterodactyl wings. I don't know, this thing was weird. It was just weird.

So I brought attention to my mom. My mom saw it. My brother saw it. It was funny because we all did the same exact thing, like, 'It's a plane, what are you guys talking about my?' I look my mom over and she said, 'It's a plane!' and I said, 'No, mom, that!' So, yeah, I don't know. I don't know what it was but I know that for some reason seeing it made me feel terrified and it stuck with me, that fear stuck with me and if you think about it, it's kind of irrational because there was no real reason to fear it. It was not coming towards us. It was just flying and it could have been something else but I know it wasn't because I seen it with my own eyes but everybody tried telling me was, like, 'Oh no, it couldn't have been Mothman because it's not Point Pleasant. That was West Virginia. This is Ohio.' Okay, well, now people are seeing it in Michigan and I'm ecstatic that people are actually reporting it because it validates what I had been trying to tell people.

Nobody wanted to believe me but now people are actually coming forward and reporting it and that was something I never did. I didn't even know you could or knew how... What do you do? Who do you call to report something like that? Do you call the cops? Oh, there's some sort of weird mothy human looking creature flying through the sky, like, no, no, I barely even wanted to tell my friends let alone report it. How do you report something like that? But apparently there's a way because people are reporting it. But there was one time I went to tell somebody this story and this did help make me feel validated too. I went to tell someone about it when I was drunk because it was the only time I could admit it and before I could even tell him what I saw I was talking about how I saw something and that it was on the 4th of July. That's all I said and he said, 'Flying?' and I was like, 'Yeah.' He's like, 'In the sky, like a human flying thing?' I'm like, 'Yeah.' He's like, 'I saw it. I was there!'

He said he was at his friend's house and when I saw it it was like flying towards the woods which is where he was at. He was in the woods. He said once it got to the tree line, which would have been out of my sight, that it kind of turned and like swooped down and flew within 20 feet of them. They were sitting around a bonfire and this thing just flew right past them and they didn't get a real real good look but they get a good enough look to see that it was like a human looking type thing with wings and when they were trying to explain it to the other people that was at the fire that didn't get a chance to see it, they all thought they were just drunk and crazy and didn't believe them either. So, that's my story, I saw Mothman and it was actually a mass sighting. A lot of people like all the people I was with saw it. The people at his bonfire saw it. There's probably other people there at the fireworks that night that saw it. None of us reported it that I know of. It was not even reported. If it had been reported, wouldn't it be, like, with the reports, with all these other people but I apparently not. I mean, it's not like an awesome scary story. I didn't see it up close. It didn't swoop down and fly right in front of me but I was close enough to know that it was not natural. It was not normal. It was not something that I've ever seen before in my life or I'm pretty sure most other people have ever seen before in their lives. There's things out there that we don't understand and that's the truth. I know what I saw I'm putting it out there. This is me reporting it. This is my report. I saw Mothman and I'm glad to get that off my chest.

Something I forgot to mention, for some reason this thing left me with a fear that would not leave for weeks. I couldn't sleep because every time I closed my eyes I would see this thing, I had nightmares of him landing on my roof or looking in my windows. And even though I knew this fear was irrational, it wouldn't leave. It was strange, that just seeing it would leave me so terrified for no real reason.

Bigfoot Accounts From Montgomery County, Indiana


The following accounts were in response to Bigfoot Observed Near Turkey Run State Park, Indiana:

This happened in 2000. We remember it like it was yesterday. It was close to Turkey Run and I could take you right to the place. That's how vivid the encounter still is. This was my report:

OBSERVED: My significant other and I lived in a house near (about 2 miles) from Turkey Run State Park in Montgomery County, Indiana. It first started out, we were sitting near a fire we had built in our yard when I kept getting the feeling I was being watched. This was probably 9 or 9:30 at night. My partner asked me what was wrong to which I told him. A few minutes later, the cattle pastured behind our house started bawling and running like something either scared them or was chasing them. My partner stepped out to the side of the garage (which was beside the house) and called me to come look, which when I got there, there was something tall standing in the moonlight. He then picked up a piece of steel pipe, his weapon of choice, and threw it at the shape, which didn't move. We assumed it was a pine or cedar tree. We went in the house shortly there after, but I still could not shake the "being watched" thing.

The next morning, we went back out to where the tree was supposed to be and there was NO tree! He threw a big rock at the spot where he'd threw the pipe the night before and actually hit the pipe on the ground with the rock. We walked out to where these items were and the grass was all beat down and trails led out through the pasture where the cattle are. There were two distinct trails. The grass was waist high and you could tell the one was used to come up and the one it used to go back by the direction the grass was laying.

TIME AND CONDITIONS: It was cool and clear. There was a partial moon because we could see the the thing standing but not clearly.

ENVIRONMENT: forests and open places. 5 strand barb wire fence 50 or so yards behind house. - name withheld

I live about 4 miles due east of Shades State Park in the SW part of Montgomery County, Indiana. Probably 9 or so years ago, I’m not sure on the year but we still lived in our old house which was lost to fire and the fire was 8 years ago so it was before that. We used to sleep with the windows open due to crappy a/c.

I had gone to bed late one night and after I got settled I noticed that it sounded like every dog in the vicinity was barking which was unusual. A lot of dog owners around here but the dogs don’t bark all night or anything. As I was wondering what had them stirred up, I heard a howl like I had never heard before, the best way I could describe it was like a low siren, but it sounded close. I laid there frozen, wondering what in the world it was. We have plenty of wildlife here and you learn to familiarize yourself with their noises especially at night. If for no other reason than to not be unnecessarily scared, as well as to protect livestock if need be. A few years later I found the Ohio Bigfoot howl recording from 1994 on the internet, and that is exactly what I heard that night, there is no doubt in my mind, I had never heard anything like it before then and I’ve never heard it again since. - Nan68

Two Bigfoot Encounters in Charleston, Arkansas


I recently received a telephone call from 'RA' in reference to two Bigfoot encounters.

The incidents took place in Charleston, Arkansas in Franklin County. RA states that last July 2018, she had walked out on to her back porch while drinking a cup of coffee, just before she was ready to leave for work. She was watching two deer and a red fox in the field.

As she stood there, she noticed movement in the tall brush about 70 yards from her. What she witnessed was a 6 1/2 - 7 ft. tall reddish-haired biped step back into the brush. RA said that it blended so well with the brush that she only noticed it when it moved. She was sure that it was a Bigfoot. She was quite alarmed and nervous, to the point where she asked her neighbor to drive her to work.

A few days ago, her boyfriend was asleep (RA was not home) and was woke by a high-pitched and sustained scream emanating from behind the house. He quickly got out of bed and looked outside. He turned on the recorder on his cellphone and recorded several minutes of the screams.

After the screams had stopped he walked downstairs and walked out on to the porch. He soon noticed a tall biped run to the left of the house towards the street in front of the house. He attempted to get video, but it was too dark and the quality was poor.

He described the scream as more of a shrill that had very short interruptions. Other people in the neighborhood also heard the noise.

I was able to listen to the recording, but have not been given permission to use on the blog. The sounds are very similar to other Bigfoot screams I have heard in the past. Lon
