'Gargoyle' Encounters Persist During Puerto Rico UFO Wave

Encounters with ‘Gargoyles’ in Puerto Rico 

By Jorge Martín – Journalist and UFO researcher - Affiliate of Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research

In the midst of the UFO wave that began in Puerto Rico on January 7, 2020, there have also been several encounters with the enigmatic winged humanoid creatures popularly known in the island as 'Gargoyles', due to their great physical resemblance to the alleged mythical creatures so called. 

- Panic by Gargoyle in Guaraguao Sector, Ponce -

On the night of January 16, 2020, Mrs. Kelly Miller Martínez, her children and her sister, residents of the southern city of Ponce, drove in Kelly's vehicle to a farm she owns in a sector of the Guaraguao neighborhood of that municipality. 

Upon arrival, she got out of the vehicle to open a gate that gives access to the farm, where she had a residence. The residence was lower on the ground, and the gate was at a higher section of the land. 

As she went to open the gate she noticed that "there was something like a large dark bird" flying in front of her, at a distance. She described the flight of the 'bird' as heavy, and noticed that it was something large, alerting her sister to the presence of the 'rare bird'. 

They continued until they reached the house and she said to her eldest son "Tito, go and throw away the garbage that is in the house", and he took a cart to pick up the barrel of garbage that they had at the entrance of the farm and take it to the house to move the garbage with it, and when he left he shouted loudly "Mommy, that bird is there, and it's something big and ugly!" What they had believed until then was a bird was standing in the middle of the slope, and looking up at them.

Mrs. Miller saw something about three to four feet tall, dark and to some degree bat-like covering its body with its wings. She couldn't see its legs, only its head, that it was  moving. 

“We were afraid,” Mrs. Miller told us, “because we didn't have neighbors, and we didn't know what we were facing. 

“We stayed inside the house, and after a while, when we dared go outside again, my 16-year-old daughter lit the way with an electric torch and that thing, that was a that moment on the mountain in front of the house, flew and fell on top of the house, standing on the eaves of the house. 

“There -she continued explaining-, we all fell into hysteria, out of fear. We screamed and closed the windows and the door, because again, we didn't know what we were dealing with. And that thing was walking on the roof of the house and scratching it, as if it had claws. It was horrible. 

“In a panic, we called the police on the cell phone, who were slow to arrive, and the creature flew off again and moved onto a wagon we have on the property. Then policemen arrived in 5 or 6 patrol cars, and they told us that several patrols wre sent because they noticed that we were terrified, and that some time before a lady from the same area had reported something similar. They said they believed us".

The lady insisted that the creature they saw "...was a black and ugly thing, something horrible, with enormous wings, and without a tail." 

She added that the creature's eyes were red and glowing, but they couldn't see the details of its face because of the darkness and because it covered its body with its large wings, which she described as bat-like, with no feathers. 

"That thing," she said, “looked somewhat like a bat, but when it stood up or moved it looked half human, and it looked strong, stringy, and sort of hunched over." 

Although she said that the police did not make an official complaint or report about what happened, we learned through a source that there was a report about it in the Ponce city headquarters, but it was impossible for us to gain access to it.

Harassing Gargoyles in Utuado 

Some residents of the Caguana neighborhood, in La Línea sector of the town of Utuado, on highway #11, have experienced similar events. Spouses Angel and Angie Maldonado, lived for 6 months (since August 2020) moments of terror in the early morning hours as they heard something heavy walking on the roof of their house sporadically. 

Their immediate neighbors, called Juan and Nilda Fernández, went to their residence one day and asked them if they had heard strange noises on the roof of their house, because they had heard them, and they confirmed that they had. 

 But everything took a disturbing aspect when one day in December 2020, in the early morning hours, the same heavy footsteps were heard on the roofs of both residences. 

Mrs. Maldonado said something interesting about the behavior of whatever it was that was walking on the roof of her residence: “Whatever that is, it is something big and heavy, because its footsteps are strong, and it seems as if it came flying, because It comes from above and falls on the ceiling. 

“We have solar panels on the roof, and you can hear how it jumps and dodges them, and it also seems to know what we are doing, because when it arrives and starts walking on the roof and I get up and pay attention, it stops walking. 

“It does that every time it starts to walk and I pay attention to where he is. I don't know, but it's as if those things can read your mind. They are very perceptive." 

Weeks later, already in January 2021, the same thing happened again, at more or less the same time in both residences. This time the neighbor couple got up and went out to see, but although they felt something big and heavy walking through the patio of their residence, they couldn't see what it was. 

“Look - Mr. Fernández told us-, it was as if that thing was invisible, because you could feel and hear its footsteps, but you couldn't see anything. Another thing is that when it walked or ran, the noise was felt like that of hooves, like when a horse runs, something like that. But again, there was nothing to be seen.” 

Already frightened by this second event, they asked other residents of the area if they had seen something similar, to no avail, until they went to an appliance store in that sector and asked the same thing to the owner, who indicated that he had not seen anything himself, but that his night shift employee, who was repairing some washer machines, did see something, and he was terrified. 

The employee told him that in the early hours of the morning a monstrous creature with a humanoid body and a height of more than 6 feet, black and with bright reddish eyes, had appeared in the place, trying to approach him. 

Terrified, he ran and hid in the back of the room where he was working, behind the machines he was repairing and assembling, and saw the hideous creature outside, walking from left to right, looking for him. He stayed hidden behind the machines until the creature took flight and left the site. 

After telling his boss what had happened, he resigned from his job, stating that he "didn't want to see such a horrible thing like that again." 

The witnesses to these encounters in Utuado placed security surveillance cameras in front of their residences, hoping that if the creature returns it can be videotaped and provide evidence of its presence.

Gargoyles Fight in Bayamón 

But certainly, the most shocking incident of this type in Puerto Rico occurred on the night of January 23, 2020, when apparently two of these unusual humanoid creatures terrorized residents of a sector of the Lomas Verdes urbanization zone near the Bayamón Regional Hospital, in the municipality of the same name, in the north of the island. 

We managed to talk with a couple the witnesses to the incident, Mrs. Yadira Guzmán and her neighbor, who, still very impressed by what had happened, told us how everything went. 

According to her, it was 5:00 a.m. in the morning, and she woke up when she felt something very heavy fall and walk on the roof of her residence. 

“Whatever it was was something big, because you could feel and hear its heavy footsteps -she indicated-. "I looked through the glass door of my house -she added- and at first I didn't see anything, but I became terrified when I saw that something that was up there in the roof of my house was trying to tear off a gray canvas shade curtain that I have in front of the house, which connects with the ceiling...and I heard a very loud growl. 

“At that moment something fell down from the roof in the middle of a row of small trees in the front patio, leaving many broken twigs… and then I saw what it was. It wasn't something human, and it was very tall. Standing up it surpassed the top of my house, the roof. That thing would be over 7 to 8 feet tall, because it was standing on the ground and the curtain covered his upper body, his shoulders, and its head. 

“He was somewhat corpulent, with a body similar to that of a man, but he looked well muscled, strong. It was a dark color, and with wings, but I couldn't get a good look at them. 

“Apparently, there were two of those things, because when that one fell, it went down slowly to the ground, kind of floating, and then I felt something fly out off my ceiling and it was gone, I felt the strong noise of its wings flapping…and it was real loud.” 

Mrs. Guzmán, terrified by what had just happened, asked her neighbors if they had felt the hubbub caused by the creatures, and one of them, Mr. Miguel Pagán, said he had heard “the fight between the creatures first on the reinforced zinc roof of my residence for several minutes and then they moved from my roof to Yadira's roof”.

Miguel added: “I did not dare to go out to see what was happening, because it scared me, but I recorded the noises and roars of those things while they were fighting with my cell phone. They roared loudly, and you could feel them on the ceiling and a strong flapping of wings. That was scary". 

Later, Miguel gave a copy of the recording he made with noises and roars to Yadira Guzmán. 

Both witnesses concluded that the creatures were "gargoyles" similar to the creatures that many people claim to have seen in Puerto Rico in recent times. 

Before ending the conversation about what happened, Yadira told us that a couple of friends of hers who live in the municipality of Aguada, in the west of the island, had experienced something similar with one of these type of creatures back in December 2020. 

One night they woke up at dawn because their dogs were barking furiously, and the husband got up and looked out the window of their room to see what was happening, and as he did so he saw a fantastic creature similar to a very large gargoyle-like creature flying low over his backyard.

He said it was, dark brown in color and with a body similar to that of a very stocky man, with large wings and luminous red eyes. The hideous creature seemed to be searching for something, looking down at the ground. 

Terrified by what he saw, he decided to go back to bed next to his wife and not go outside, although he could not get back to sleep. The next day, very early, he went out to his land to see what was happening and found that two goats on his property had been attacked by something unknown. One of them was dead, and showed strange holes in its body through which its blood seemed to have been drawn out.

In Utuado: Two Gargoyles Fight for an Iguana 

Another recent testimony from a witness who lives in Utuado reminded us of the incident of the gargoyles fighting in Bayamón. 

Mr. José Mendoza (pseudonym) revealed that he was recently driving his pick-up vehicle one night in a road in the Roncador Arriba sector of the town of Utuado and suddenly saw in front of him, in the middle of the road, what he initially thought were two men struggling. 

But as he got closer, the lights of the vehicle allowed him to see that "they were not men, but actually two incredible creatures" who were struggling for an iguana. 

“One of them -Mendoza said- was holding the iguana from behind and the other one was holding it by its head, and each one was pulling it to its side. They were like fighting over her". 

He described the two creatures as “man-like, black, muscular and winged. Their eyes were red and luminous, with a more or less very strange square shape”. 

Seeing those two weird creatures, he grabbed a large, sharp machete that he had in his vehicle and got out of it to approach the two fantastic creatures, and one of them, seeing him approach with the machete, released the iguana, jumped a deep ravine and he lost sight of it. 

“The other creature did the same thing -he indicated- and it took a great jump, landing on the top of a tree, but the tree could not support its weight and it jumped and went down another ravine and disappeared.

According to all the witnesses of these events, these creatures seem to be intelligent. But what are they? Where have they come from, why are they here in Puerto Rico, and what is their purpose? 

That, dear readers, will be answered on a future occasion. The investigations into this situations continue.

KENNETH HOPKINS / MKULTRA, ABDUCTIONS, MILITARY, & MIND CONTROL - Lon Strickler (Host)

Phantoms & Monsters Radio welcomes alien abductee and military surveillance experiencer Kenneth Hopkins.

Kenneth states:

"For most of my life I had no awareness that I was an abductee. The night experiences I thought were dreams. In these, I would visit many places and see the same people many nights after I fell asleep.  I thought they were dream people. I could smell, touch them and have all six senses with them. Some places were cold, some places too warm and other places I couldn’t seem to get enough oxygen in.

When things became strange was in the summer of 1976. While attending Northeastern University, I would get a Top Security job, working for a contracting Agency for the Department Of Defense (DOD). The DOD and an abduction would create a conflict that would become lifelong in surveillance. I’m not going to get into much detail on this. The story was published in 2016 in a book titled 'Earth Transformations.' Published as non-fiction, where a young female agent for DOD, would be set up for abductions with me. With much assistance from Llan Starkweather, we were able to get this book published. Unfortunately, the book has been taken out of circulation.

In the years of 1975 through 1978, I would have abductions by the Greys in the daytime while driving a car with numerous different young women. These experiences I would have no memory of. I called them, “Blackouts.”  I would later become aware that these were referred to as missing time. As they occurred, I felt helpless. Some ranged from a half hour to most of a day. Always there were women present. In 30 minutes to an hour, most the women seemed unaware. These incidents occurred in cars, beaches, and even amongst crowds of people. As events occurred, so did homicides of witnesses. I ran into the Navy when men in suits started looking for me. In the last two homicides, two people just disappeared. Surveillance would start while I was in the U.S. Navy and continues to this day.

In 2003, after telling a story of seeing a UFO to my son, I would receive a series of flashbacks.  They became traumatic. I would begin my search with Hypnosis and Massachusetts MUFON. The pieces would come together in fragments of what occurred some 35 years ago. I would become horrified as different visitors came into my room, awakening me. Some ghost and some Interdimensionals.

It was at this point I reached out and helped others understand their experiences. For me now, it’s reaching out to others and to help them better understand their experiences.

Accidentally my son walked into my bedroom to shut the door and there he saw a Grey standing by my bed. This incident started my use of photography. After trying numerous camera systems we were able to photograph abduction phenomena "that these were referred to as missing time. As they occurred, I felt helpless. Some ranged from a half hour to most of a day. Always there were women present. In 30 minutes to an hour, most the women seemed unaware.

SKINWALKERS & NATIVE AMERICAN LORE ROUNDTABLE - Tremblay, Crisp, & Nighthawk - Lon Strickler (Host)

Phantoms & Monsters Radio presents researcher and investigators Ryan Paul Tremblay, Shane-Michael Crisp, and William Nighthawk as we discuss Skinwalkers and other Native American Lore.

-----

My name is Ryan Paul Tremblay. I’ve been a hardcore Cryptozoology enthusiast and researcher for well over 20 years now. Like many, my fascination with monsters and things that go “bump in the night” began very early on. Growing up in New England was the perfect breeding ground for such a fascination. With plenty of wilderness around—and our Cryptid to boot, I soon began to hear not only of Bigfoot, but now the Dover Demon. As the years went on, I found more media accessible to my young mind: Books were plentiful and shows began to emerge in the early 90’s showcasing Cryptid encounters. In Southern Arizona, I had my own personal encounter with the Dog Man. This simply fueled my obsession for Cryptozoology. Before I knew it, I was traversing down numerous rabbit holes. Jersey Devil. Upright Canids. Various forms of Sasquatch. Extraterrestrials and finally, the Wendigo. Through countless hours of hard work, plenty of literature and even the reluctant volunteering of information through connections to Indigenous people, I found a supernatural creature that captured my curiosity, my determination and fascination alike! Host of Whisper to a Scream podcast and Cohost of Monster Radio.

Hi my name is Shane-Michael Crisp. I’m 31 years old from Bakersfield, CA. Married to my best friend of 8 years and have a 10 year old stepson. Always believed in Sasquatch and UFOs but never spoke out loud in fear of ridicule since these topics are so tin-foil stuff. Only spoke about it with people who would bring up the topics which was rare. Last August a coworker told me about Dogmen which I didn’t believe in just laughed at the name. He had me listen to a few episodes of Dogman encounters which got me intrigued that people are seeing these bipedal canines everyday. So I started diving into the phenomenon a little more and became hooked. Became a active field researcher at the beginning of January this year and joined the NADP. Along the way I’ve came across so many other cryptids that started to fascinate me from Gugwe, Chupacabra, and Skinwalkers. So when I’m not at work shooting X-rays, watching football, hanging with the family, I’m either in the woods chasing 7ft dogmen, or on the internet reading and watching anything cryptid related trying to gain as much knowledge as possible. I host and moderate the West Coast Skinwalker Project And West Coast Dogman Project.
