Dinosaur Bird Spotted in Pennsylvania
A Pennsylvania man on Wednesday said he saw a “lizard-like” bird in Lehigh County
The man, a 47-year-old construction worker who provided a full name and contact information but asked to remain anonymous, said he was outside cutting firewood for his fireplace when the unusual creature showed up last Monday at 2:14 p.m..
“A large shadow appeared above me. I ran inside to grab my phone, but by the time I came outside the bird was gone. I’ve been terrified to go outside since that event,” he told Cryptozoology News
The eyewitness, who also provided a sketch of the purported flying animal, described it as a green bird with a 20 feet wingspan and fully covered in scales.
“It also had a spike on the end of its tail and razor-like talons,” he said, adding that it resembled a lizard.
I'd say based on the "drawing" that since it had feathers it wasn't a pterosaur. Also the drawing and the writing look like they were done by a 7 year old.
yeah, sounds more like the "thunderbird"
I'd say the guys kid saw an eagle and was freaked out since he has been reading to many dinosaur books.
I don't see it as being a thunderbird either.
No pic of the bird, that's a bummer, unless it was a cover-up, maybe it was a thunderbird...
'Large bird' knocks out power for 22,000 in Hammond
Wondering what caused the outage that left thousands without power in Hammond on Friday afternoon? You can credit a 'large bird.'
According to Entergy Louisiana officials, the bird apparently flew into the region's substation just before 4 p.m. and managed to completely knock out power for about 22,000 customers. Crews were dispatched to assess the outage and energy was restored just before 5 p.m., officials said.
The roughly hour-long outage affected most of the city of Hammond, above I-12. Reports showed that traffic lights at most intersections were out while power was down.
The bird died as a result of its collision with the power lines, according to a report by WBRZ.
he says that he saw it, not his kid
Yes I know that is what he said......then he must have had his kid draw the picture.
I'd say this is a classic example of a guy wanting attention.
yeah that's a little too weird for me lol
there is no proof for either theory here really, mostly because he din't take a picture of the creature
any new investigations?
I agree.....I don't see it being a pterosaur or what people call a "thunderbird".
It is a pity he didn't give any real information.
Witness in Gary, Indiana Terror-Stricken by 'Grayish, Bat-Winged' Flying Creature
Lon Strickler of Phantoms and Monsters published a report last Monday from a woman whose husband had witnessed a "grayish" flying creature "with large wings that were similar to bat wings" on January 19th.
According to the report:
Strickler has so far been unable to speak to the witness directly, but hopes to be able to do so soon.
“The email was dated Saturday, January 19th at 11:11 p.m. [EST]," he said. "I have attempted to talk to the witness, but he is far too shaken and fearful this being will re-engage with him. Hopefully, the witness will eventually open up."
Chase Street, referenced in the report, runs north to south and is intersected by the Little Calumet River. The city of Gary itself sits on the shore of Lake Michigan, and Chase Street begins less than three miles from the great lake, and just south of the Grand Calumet River.
2nd Winged Humanoid Observed in Gary, Indiana
Lon Strickler of Phantoms and Monsters received a second sighting report out of Gary, Indiana this week, following the one which occurred on January 19th. This more recent report is of an encounter which occurred months prior to the previously published sighting.
"On Monday, January 22, 2019, I received a text message from a resident in Gary, Indiana," Strickler said. "I called the witness...to discuss his observations."
"[The witness stated] that his family had been on their front porch one evening in late September 2018," he continued. "This was on the 300 block of East 43rd Ave. in Gary, Indiana. Across the street was a small lot with several tall trees. It was a clear night and the moon backlit the grove of trees."
The creature described by the witness bore a strong resemblance to that which was reportedly seen on January 19th of this year. That creature was said to be a "grayish" flying creature "with large wings that were similar to bat wings.”
"[The witness'] brother or father noticed a large winged being flying near the top of one of the trees, and made the rest of the family aware of the being. The children were taken back into the house. [He], his brother and father continued to observe the winged humanoid...which was described as having a body of four to five feet in length. The wingspan was approximately 10 to 12 feet, but could have been larger. The entire body and wings were dark in color," said Strickler.
"[The witness] stated that the body reminded him of a 'large monkey' in shape. The wings were bat-like and reflected in the moonlight," he added.
"All the witnesses heard a 'whooshing' sound when the being flapped its huge wings,” Strickler said. “The winged being flew into the trees and disappeared.”
As has been noted previously in other submitted sightings, this report came after the witness' brother saw the report of a similar creature from earlier in the week.
“[The witness'] brother contacted him when he saw my post of the recent winged humanoid sighting in Gary, Indiana. They had not told anyone else outside of the family. At that point, [he] texted me," explained Strickler.
Chase Street, where the January 19th sighting took place, is around two miles west of the 300 block of East 43rd Avenue in Gary—an area located between the Little Calumet and Grand Calumet rivers, and approximately five miles south of Lake Michigan.
