A reader swears that they observed a small monkey with large wings flying away after passing it on a suburban street near Jacksonville, Florida. What did he and his passenger see?
Received in May 2017 from a reader near Jacksonville, Florida:
“This is going to sound totally unbelievable but I swear I saw something like a flying monkey last night. I was driving on a neighborhood street and this strange animal was on the roadway. I could see its head and it looked like a monkey to me but it was small like the size of a prairie dog or gopher. I kept saying "what is that?" I drove around it as it would not move (possibly dazed by my headlights). My friend thought it was a possum until we passed it and we both said "that wasn't a possum." I quickly turned around and all I saw were huge wings (way too big for that animal) flying away.
Now obviously I said, that had to be an owl or whatever it was just got snatched up by a giant owl. The problem is that this thing had a head and a neck and it was standing on two feet leaning forward staring right at the car and didn't move.
I am so confused as to what I saw even though I was so close to it. I mean I see owls all the time, big ones too. I know what they look like. That thing in the road, if it was an owl, was a mutant owl. Even if I admit it was probably an owl, its wings were still far too big for its size. I have no idea what I saw but I swear it looked like a small monkey to me.
I live in Florida and although I live near Jacksonville (northeast Florida), in south Florida, there was a Walmart that had monkeys living in the parking lot due to owners letting them escape. So, it is possible that it was an escaped tiny monkey although extremely unlikely. But wings? The whole thing was so confusing." RA
NOTE: I never did like those damn flying monkeys in 'The Wizard of Oz.' They used to freak me out as a kid. So folks, what did the reader witness? Lon
