Chicago Woman Attacked By Giant Bat-Like Creature in 2005

The following account was reported as a comment to a YouTube video that described the recent 'Chicago Phantom' sightings. The grammar and text was poorly written, and the original content needed to be corrected and edited. I believe the witnesses were Southwest Native American, though I don't know the nationality of the writer. This incident took place in 2005:

I live in Chicago, and my friend's mom told him about this creature. Well, he told me that in 2005 his mom and dad were driving in the city and they noticed a giant bat-like creature following them at high speed. Obviously they didn't believe their eyes at what they saw, but luckily they sped up the car and got far away from the creature. His father was so shocked, that he just about smashed the car into a tree. They later stopped the car and discussed about what that thing was. While they were talking they once again noticed the creature flying towards them. His father started the car, but the creature was speeding towards them. Then without any hesitation, it smashed itself into the windshield. It was like it didn't see the window. Then it breaks the glass on the front passenger side door. My friend's mom was sitting there while it tried to put its claws into her arm. His dad had a glass bottle which he cracked into the creature's head. It falls on the ground and they drive away as fast as they can.

They assumed that they had gotten rid of the creature. When they got home, it was apparent that my friend's mom was injured. After helping his wife out of the car, he went back to close the car door. Then suddenly, the creature again appeared at a tremendous speed and attacked his mom. It attempted to grab her and fly away. But quickly, his dad beat the creature with a huge stone. It eventually took of and disappeared into the dark sky.

When the creature tried to take his mom away, she got a closer look at it. After all this happened and her being injured, she told her husband that "it's a kind of extinct creature." "It had long sharp nails, a very scary face, glowing eyes and sharp teeth." His mother looked on internet to see what the creature was. At that time, they were new to Chicago. They had never heard about a Mothman. They were only thinking about one creature...a Skinwalker, because they were familiar with that creature because of their culture. It can transform into a half animal / half human.

After a lot of research, they eventually discovered that the creature closely resembled only one being. The Mothman. Since then, they always avoid dark places and those areas where other people don't frequent. They still believe that the creature will return and attack them.

After I heard about the incident from my friend, I thought he was lying. But when I heard this story from his mom, I now believe it occurred. Even if this thing exist, I will not truly believe it until I see it with my own eyes. Now it may have returned to Chicago

Grey Being Encounter / Low Beeping Noises Afterwards

Haleyville, AL - 2017-06-18 - 8:11AM: I was walking the dog and it ran in the woods. I went to recover the dog and noticed something in the corner of my eye when I raised up from recovering the dog. I started to turn to look when this Grey 4 foot tall made 2 loud screams I've NEVER heard before! I got a small glimpse and took off running to the house. It happened around 8am the hairs on the back of my neck and body stood straight up, might be out of fear. I heard low beeping noises for a couple days after having this encounter and had a transformer to blow up about a mile away from where I seen it. No lightning storms where around. - MUFON


Space Debris on Mars?

A crystal clear photograph taken by the Opportunity rover shows an unidentified object sitting nearby.

Unlike previous images of anomalous objects on Mars, this one is very clear and evidently not simply a case of pareidolia - the brain's natural tendency to see meaningful shapes in abstract patterns.

Situated on the Meridiani Planum region of Mars, the most likely explanation is that it is a piece of debris from the rover's own landing systems.

Actor Rob Lowe Terrified By Bigfoot

Rob Lowe wants to believe.

The actor will soon debut a TV series on A&E called “The Lowe Files” in which he and his two adult sons go in search of the paranormal. And, he claims that in some cases, they actually found it.

Lowe told Entertainment Weekly that he had an “incredible encounter” with a creature known as the wood ape, or the Ozark version of Sasquatch or Bigfoot.

“I’m fully aware that I sound like a crazy, Hollywood kook right now,” he admitted.

Lowe said he was terrified by the encounter.

“I was lying on the ground thinking I was going to be killed,” he said.

Since the wood ape encounter is in the show’s season finale, Lowe refused to reveal too many details about it. But he set the scene:

“We’re 100 miles from the nearest town. We spent 45 minutes on the most rugged, brutal mountain trails. It’s 1 in the morning. There are a lot of serious former military men with loaded weapons, then something starts approaching our camps that is defying their orders to stop and their warnings that [they were] armed.”
A&E said in a news release that the show’s nine episodes will tackle aliens, remote viewing, “angry, vengeful spirits” and more.

“While fun in spirit, the Lowes are able to conduct deliberate and scientific investigations on a highly-sophisticated level by meeting with top experts, using high-tech monitoring equipment and taking in-depth training courses,” the network said. - Rob Lowe: I Saw Bigfoot, And I Thought It Would Kill Me

Mysterious Account: What Do You Think?

The following is a very strange account. What are your thoughts?:

“Man, I hate doing this but here goes. When I was a teenager one of my best friends' girlfriend called my parent's home looking for her boyfriend, my best friend. She reached my baby bro. When I got home from work my brother gave me the sketchy details of her call. She claimed at the time of the call, two policemen paid her a visit. My brother and a group of concerned friends were going over to her house to talk in person. I opted out, being tired from working a double shift. They left, I hit the sack. As I started to drift off I heard my side door slam open followed by the sound of someone falling/frantically shuffling down my basement stairs. That's where my room was, my room was the first door right across from the basement stairs, right as you entered the side door of my parents house.

I didn't get out of bed but I called out to whomever was out there. I figured it was my baby brother coming back, maybe he forgot something and he was running back into his room to get it. (which was the second door to my room). Whomever it was never came into my room. They ran right past and went into his bedroom. It was so clear. I even heard panting. Then I thought maybe it was my best friend, he would do that whenever he got into trouble or whatever. He wouldn't go home. He would always come straight to my parent's house. After getting no reply, I got up, looked around, shut the side door, went back downstairs, looked around in my brother's room...I didn't see anyone.

About 20 to 30 minutes after that, my brother called me very upset. But by then I already knew...my friend was dead. In fact I told my brother before he could finish his sentence. They found him in his girlfriend's car with a bullet hole in the center of his head and one through the palm of his hand, as though he tried to block the bullet. His murder has never been solved.

The strange part, the next morning the police claimed they hadn't been to the home of the deceased's fiance. They contacted the immediate family late that night. Going by the police report and what his older brother told us in a very accusing manner. (forgive my digression but remember that scene in the movie Fire in the Sky, where Travis older brother questioned Michael about Travis's whereabouts? It was eerily similar to that, just take it up a few notches). The times didn't match up whatsoever. At the time my brother received the call from her, taking in the eyewitness (he hit a fire hydrant on the witnesses front lawn but he never saw anyone around the car/scene) account...his murder hadn't took place.”

NOTE: Very odd account. My take is that the police had gone to the fiance's (girlfriend's) house looking for her boyfriend. She called around asking for him. The brother went to her place to talk to her while the witness stayed home and went to bed. The witness was awoken by the sound of somebody entering the house and going to his brother's room. He assumed it was the friend and got up to check, but nobody was there. Approximately 30 mins. later he got a call notifying him that the friend had been killed. The police claim they never went to the fiance's home before or after. The bottom line is that somebody came to the house asking for the boyfriend (possibly the killers) pretending to be cops or something more bizarre occurred...and the witness overheard his deceased friend. Is this an overlapping timeline story with a bit of an entity account included? Do you have an interpretation? Lon

Entities Living Behind Us!

Glendale, AZ - 2017-04-14: My cousin Garry and I have witnessed several instances with the entities living behind us.

The first few times we both witnessed a form of 2 glowing lights in our bedroom.

Then I witnessed an entity who looked female who was with a smaller form of herself, only the smaller female had blond hair and the bigger one had dark hair. I observed them sit down in their backyard and as I looked over the wall I watched the two disappear and reappear several times. This really blew my mind, both my cousin and I witnessed this same female, the bigger one, hover through the room towards the back door of their house. When she came outside we saw she had with her a huge wolf type entity with her. The wolf appeared to be gentle and well groomed. It's hair was neatly combed and it wore a tie and vest. I then said OMG.....we mean you no harm. My cousin and I went back inside our house and began to discuss what we had seen.

We've seen other strange events happen at this same location. - MUFON

Targeted by Supernatural Forces?

Boscawen, NH - November 2015: I felt an evil, negative, unstoppable Force had been placed on me and had no idea what that meant by who until after a year and a half later. I was targeted for destruction by this demonic being who has supernatural powers that he has used against me. This being sits back & watches his game play out that has caused satanic wrath's in my life and makes sure I am left all alone so I am tormented & tortured to the point it has left me all alone with no possessions, job or any of life's success. When it has taken, it then has tortured me by tapping me all over my body, giving me scabies & not allowing me to recover, itches me, turns the leaves in trees,, bushes, pictures around me, wallpaper & the food I eat into these characters of different faces and last night burnt my skin by scorching these type characters into my skin that caused burning, itching & swelling.

When I tried to use this supernatural app to locate it, I believe now it mess with it as the attacks came at me with visual of it happening. When I took a torch to defend myself, it had my mother wake up which is unheard of as she is an alcoholic, as she watches my experience with no exception of it's real meaning and now thinks I'm completely crazy. This being purposely leaves me alone in his destruction and every time I capture my experiences on film, it is sure to make it impossible for me to show anyone the horrific reality of what it is doing to me. It has laid a magical day of healing, songs I believed from an angel so I'm to believe there's some heavenly purpose I'm involved. Then, scenario after scenario that it has laid out where it used mind controlling of others, items for that scenario magically appearing, manipulating technology or anything & anyone it can use as it watches me on the wild goose chase to failure. As that scenario fails and causes me devastation that it so enjoys, another is laid out to manipulate & deceive me. Now, as all avenues of any logic of who & why is tried and proved wrong, there are no other scenarios so I figured it out and who it is and why its doing it. One by one, it targets the human race for it's evil game of destruction and will never leave that target until it's victory of being the master of the universe. It's arrogance, selfishness, sick demented evilness will do whatever it needs for however long until it's victim kills themselves and it feels it is victorious. Now that it knows I know, it has brought these new tortured & tormenting techniques as weapons for my destruction where no one believes the actual truth of it's existence and it's sick games he plays with us. I believe it's been doing this for a long time here as it protects it's existence at all costs so it can continue on like he has with no survivors. It needs to be stopped and I will now I have the best part of me left it cannot take in my strength, resilience, bravery and my ability of to stand for myself & all, I have now become it's unstoppable Force I placed on it to show the world of it's existence and that it is an evil demonic creature with supernatural powers used against us to destroy us one by one. - MUFON


Biscardi's Newest Bigfoot Bounty...Sigh

REDWOOD CITY, Calif. - A family is offering a $1 million reward to the person who can capture something they are desperately trying to find.

That amount of money seems to be a very big motivator online but some social media users aren't convinced the task is actually possible.

What is the family looking for? Bigfoot, obviously.

Bigfoot Project Investments, Inc. is offering the bounty to "anyone brave enough to deliver information leading to the capture or delivery of a bona fide Bigfoot." Read more at Group offering $1 million bounty for real Bigfoot


Lake Beast in Russia?

A mysterious object that looks eerily similar to the fabled Loch Ness Monster has been spotted in a Russian lake.

Pictures from the sighting appear to show a long neck with a head on the end – just like the stereotypical image of Nessie.

There is another object just behind the “neck” – which looks like the hump that features in many Loch Ness Monster photographs.

The bizarre “beast” is white – unlike the Loch Ness Monster, which is usually pictured with darker, green skin.

Onlookers claim it is the Russian Nessie. Read more at Loch Ness Monster spotted in RUSSIA: Mermaid or mutant sea monster?

Angel of Mercy

Dave in Minnesota wrote in with his unusual story:

“The following is a story that happened to me in the 1980s. This story takes place in either 86 or 87, on the east side of St. Paul at the intersection of Bradley Street and Maryland Avenue. It was approximately 11 at night and I was lying on the couch when I heard a loud crash. I ran outside to see how bad of an accident it was and when I got to scene, I saw that a motorcycle had hit a car broad side that was turning onto Maryland Ave. The driver and the passenger were thrown over the top of car with the driver landing on the street with his head against the curb while the passenger was ejected onto the grass of the boulevard.

I was the first one there, except for a nurse dressed all in white who was there when I arrived. She was already bending over the motorcycle driver, whose head had hit the curb. She looked at me and told me, "I have this one, you take care of the other." So I went over to the other passenger who had landed on the grass boulevard. The boy's hand was ripped open and he was in shock but conscious. I had to put pressure on his hand because he was bleeding profusely and then watched then nurse still bent over the other boy. Within a few minutes other people began arriving including a policeman. When the policeman arrived, he went over to the boy that had his head smashed against the curb. He spoke with the nurse looking after the boy then came over to me and asked me how he was doing. He looked at the one I was tending to and told me to keep the pressure on the cut and to keep talking to him to keep him awake then he went back over to the nurse that was taking care of the other kid. About this time the ambulance could be heard in the background making it's way to the scene of the accident. The policeman came back over to the me and said that he didn’t think the other one was going to make it and asked again how this one was doing. I told him this one was okay for now but was definitely going into shock. He was shaking because of the shock. Then the policeman met the ambulance and they first looked at the badly injured boy then the policeman came back to ask about the one I was with. He asked me if I saw where the nurse went. I had not.

By this time a paramedic had arrived and taken over for me. The policeman was asking the crowd that gathered if they saw where the nurse had gone. He came over to me and took down my information. He again asked if I saw her. I said yes, I spoke with her. He said no one else seems to know where she went as if she just disappeared. Another motorcyclist was with them and I ended up giving him a ride in order to pick up the badly injured’s mother and drive her to Ramsey Hospital. Having done this, I drove back home. The motorcycle driver was pronounced dead at the hospital. Was the nurse really an angel coming to take someone who was passing?”

UFO Incident Over Loring AFB

In a 2013 video released by Michael Wallace, a KC-135 pilot tells a story from 1975 at Loring AFB, Maine about his UFO encounter during a return flight back to base after air-to-air refueling:

“I'm going to tell you a really incredible story that I have first-hand information on. The story begins at Loring Air Force Base and northern Maine near Limestone back in 1975. The 42nd Bomb Wing consisted of two air fueling squadrons and a bomber squadron. The mission was to support emergency war orders armed with nuclear weapons. I'd like to give you some background about the UFOs over Loring before we get into the details of the formation flight.

A couple of weeks or maybe even as few as a couple of days before this particular formation flight, a meeting was called by the 42nd Bomb Wing for all the flight crews...all three of the flying squadrons to be held with the alert facility. This was unusual. It was first time that it happened for me and all the time that I had been there so I was kind of curious as to what this is going to be about. So at the beginning of the meeting a uniformed Major says "listen if you don't have the security clearance of at least secret you need to leave." There's only a couple people that got up of a couple hundred people that were there. That Major started off by saying "if you haven't heard, there has been a UFO reported over the base"...over the nuclear-armed B-52s that are on alert over the nuclear weapons storage facilities that had nuclear weapons stored at them at this time. So it was a very serious situation and that's what this meeting was all about. "It's hovering without making any sound. It does have a few lights. It can move very quickly, unconventionally, rapid straight-line movements with straight vertical movements, turn with the without any apparent radius in the turn. So it's a pretty incredible technology. The wing staff is pretty concerned about it so they have notified SAC headquarters and we were told, don't talk to anybody about it. If you have one of these incidents. You can talk to us and a have a debriefing but outside of this room, don't talk about it. We're also concerned that the local press is going to get wind of all the extra ground forces and the fighters that we're bringing in to help us deal with this issue, so we're going to tell them that that there's a Canadian helicopter crossing the border and harassing us. So I think that's pretty incredible, but that's the background for the story that I'm going to tell you."

We had departed Loring earlier in the day. It was a nighttime refueling mission. There were three KC-135s in this formation. I was the aircraft commander on the number two aircraft in this three airplane formation. Tanker formations were referred to as 'cell flights.' There was a lot of vertical separation, a lot of horizontal separation. There was none of this high flying like the fighters do, this kind of stuff. Now we were way, way vertically clear, I think, a thousand feet, and I don't know, half mile, maybe, you know, so it wasn't very much fun. It was just kind of boring actually to be in a formation flight and tanker, however, the mission was pretty routine. I don't remember. It was unremarkable in almost every way until we started back and that's where the fun begins, that's where the action happens.

So we are coming back from a refueling mission somewhere south of New York offshore a little ways and I believe it was with F4 Phantoms. Just a routine training mission for both the Phantom's and for us, so as we are somewhere close, I think somewhere between Bangor and Portland, northbound coming back to Loring Air Force Base. The command post at Loring contacted us which was not routine but not completely out of the ordinary. But when they asked the aircraft commander of the cell leader, the aircraft commander of the number one tanker, to change radio frequencies to standby, they had an important radio call that they wanted to talk to him about. That was pretty unusual. So it didn't take me long to say, "hey, you know, I think one of my spare radios is good so let's see what this guy is going to get briefed on." So I tuned in. Number three tanker, probably with the same curiosity, he did the same thing, I'm sure. And we're listening to the command post telling the cell formation leader, "Listen, the UFO is over the base again, right now, and we want you to pass off the leadership of the formation of the cell flight, to the number two aircraft, and then we want you, then, for one aircraft, to turn your lights out too, radios off and head straight to the base at your own discretion, out to airspeed, path whatever, at your own discretion"...which is unusual, very unusual to hear that. Incredible, as a matter of fact, so I was quite shocked.

So the cell leader acknowledges and says, "Will do." So the next thing you know, I'm getting a call from him. He's contacted me and said, "Listen, I just got special orders, I have to depart the formation. You're going to take over leadership of the cell. Let the navigators coordinate our positions when you're ready, you got it." So when the navs did that, I was convinced that we were where they said we were. I could see some of the city, I knew we were close. I trusted the nav and off we went to the initial approach fix and the aircraft commander of the number one tanker turns his lights off, don't hear any more communication, so he's now radio silent. In the moonlight I could see his silhouette and down he descended into the darkness heading straight for Loring Air Force Base. Would have loved to have traded places with them. So number two, now, the old number three, and number two, and I, started the initial approach fix which is quite a ways south of the south end of runway 36. Runway 36 lands to the north, so going straight to the base is a lot faster and everything is...everything unfolds with that aircraft as he approaches the base.

Well, before I make it through the initial approach fix, I start hearing tower channel frequency communications that are really exciting. I've heard some combat radio discussions during some bomb strikes with F4s so, you know I can recognize a little stress in the voices and there was definitely stress on these voices. I wouldn't call it panicked but it was bordering on frantic. They're talking about, "Did you see it? Where is it now? Which way did it go? Oh my god, there it goes and it's down on this end of the runway, it's over east Loring, no it's back over the alert bombers" and that kind of communication, back and forth, quite a few different people talking on the tower frequency. I don't believe I could hear the tanker's crew-members chiming in. I'm not sure I would have recognized them, maybe. Maybe I would have. I do know that when the tankers at elevation, the KC-135 is set elevation their radar forward, forward-looking-radar was at a 240 mile range. I'm not sure what it is, it's substantially reduced at at ground level and they were flying in really, really low I believe. So the fact that they lost radar contact with the UFO in almost an instant is remarkable in itself and then they said, I did hear the communication say something to the effect that we've lost it and then as quickly as the communications, it's starting on tower frequency, they ended.

So that was kind of the end of the excitement and my wingman and I continued our normal approach through runway 36, we broke up the formation, I guess, after we hit the initial approach fix, so I landed. A couple minutes later the second airplane landed and taxied in. It's the middle of the night, there's not a lot of action going on at the base that we can see and we proceeded to our squadron normal debriefing room, had a couple of beers, filled out some paperwork and we're dying to talk to somebody that knew anything about what just happened out on the base. We couldn't find anybody that either knew it or dared talk about it so that was kind of the end of that night. The tanker that had departed the formation and gone off to chase the UFO was absent from the briefing room when we got there and then all of a sudden I realized that, well, he must be debriefing the Major, the same Major that gave that meeting that I talked about earlier however the story gets even a little bit more bizarre.

I see the aircraft commander of the first tanker. I'm not going to say his name. I've almost slipped a couple of times but I don't have permission to get him involved in my UFO story. So I'm not gonna say the name. I see him walking along in front of the base exchange the PX over at Loring, just couple of days after the flight I believe. So I pull my truck over got out and went running over to him and I said, "What the hell happened that night with that UFO" and he looks at me and he goes "I can't talk about it. I can't talk about it. You wouldn't believe me if I could talk about it." So that's the end of the story and it is incredible. It is. That's as true as I can remember. It's been a long time but I had a lot of experience at the time of that incident and I've had a lot of experience in the cockpits after that experience, but I've never had anything as incredible as that happen.”
