RED-EYED, BAT-WINGED CREATURE Confronts Moving Truck on Mississippi Road

Three friends in Mantachie, Mississippi are in a local park at night when they see a dark-cloaked being. After they leave, a red-eyed, bat-winged creature swoops down toward their truck.

I received the following account:

"Dear Phantoms & Monsters editor. In the Fall of 2001 two of my friends and I decided to go to the liquor store and get someone to buy us a pint of booze. We were not yet of age so we had to get people who were of age to go in and buy it for us. We did this two or three times a week. The small town we live in (Mantachie, Mississippi) most of the time leaves you alone as long as you are not bothering anyone. We got the booze and headed to the park in this small town. We go to the park to have a drink every once and a while but this night was different.

We pulled up to the park and started to get out of the truck. We had not yet opened the booze so the booze did not influence us. I was sitting in the middle and my friend was getting out of the passenger's side door. When he got out and I got out, I noticed the sound of a tennis ball bouncing on the tennis court. I looked and saw this figure bouncing a tennis ball. The figure was around 6 feet tall and was wearing a dark cloak. It looked to me that he had some sort of pouch on his back. we all saw the same thing. In a flash, we jumped back into the truck and headed down the road to figure out what we had seen.

We got a few miles away and in the distance, we saw coming at us a large bat-like creature. It was several feet away from us but you could make out the red glowing eyes. It passed right in front of our windshield and vanished in the darkness. We rushed to one of our houses and didn't drink that night. We didn't do anything but stay there all night.

I am a skeptic when it comes to the paranormal but I do know what I saw. I read your reports of the winged humanoid in Chicago. Do you believe that it may have been the same or similar creature? Have you received other reports from Mississippi? Thanks. D

NOTE: This may have been a red-eyed winged humanoid. We have received reports worldwide. Lon

Hey, folks. How would you like to design artwork for Phantoms & Monsters, Phantoms & Monsters Radio, or Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research?

If your art is approved by me I will promote it with your name and link. It must be original, print-ready, and sized for clothing & merchandise.

I will select up to 5 different designs, and each will be fully promoted on the blog, the Phantoms & Monsters online shop, YouTube, social media, etc.

Back in the Summer of 2010, I posted a poll that posed the question ‘What is Bigfoot?’ To my surprise, 26% of the 574 participants answered they believed this creature was interdimensional and/or extraterrestrial. Are we at a point where people are open-minded enough to accept that a hominid-type species may not be of our time or planet?

I posed this question to my readers and challenged them to make their case. Again, I was surprised at the amount of response I received. A total of 112 emails, with well-thought-out theories and opinions, were received in three days.

Maybe we’ll discover beyond a doubt where the truth lies about Bigfoot. We may kill several birds with one stone if or when we do find the answers to our questions. There may be a grand connection between all the mysteries in our world, possibly involving other worlds or dimensions as well. Mankind may be the greatest mystery of all and the reason why Bigfoot, extraterrestrials, spirits, etc. seem to be as fascinated with us as we are with them.

So, sit back and listen to the reports, and contemplate what you believe Bigfoot is. If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer everyone.
