Former Soldier,Wife Come Upon Flying Creature in Alabama

MAGRET, Ala. — A former soldier on Friday said he saw an unidentified flying creature in St. Clair County.

Mike, a 48-year-old Magret resident, told Cryptozoology News he and his wife were driving when they noticed the creature coming out of the trees located on the side of the road.

“We ducked our heads because we thought it was going to hit the truck,” Mike said. “Then, this very large flying bird thing stopped mid air over our front window of the truck and dipped its head, looked at us, then zoomed in ans flew away to the left of us,” he continued about the early morning incident.

The former military man claims he was able to gather a physical description of the creature.

“It had something red about its face or head. Its wings where very large,” he recalls, adding that the unknown animal was wider than their Durango SUV.

“It was huge… it was an unreal creature,” he said.

In 1890, Arizona newspaperThe Tombstone Epitaph reported that two ranchers had allegedly killed a “winged monster”, similar to an “alligator”, in the desert between the Whetsone and Huachuca mountains.

In August 2015, a man in Michigan claimed to have seen a “giant bird” with a 10-foot wingspan.

In July 2015, two people in Nevada reported seeing a creature that reminded them of a pterosaur, a flying reptile believed to have gone extinct about 65 million years ago.

Two weeks later, a minister and her daughter claimed to have seen an unidentified flying creature that looked like it was “straight out of Jurassic Park”.

 In April 2015, a Louisiana man claimed to have seen a similar flying creature he believes was responsible for cow mutilations back in 1978.

Just a month later, anotherperson came forward stating he had seen a dinosaur-like bird at a public park about 50 miles northwest of Tucson in 2002.

In October 2015, a California man snapped a photograph of what he believed to be a “prehistoric bird”.

In 1927, a similar event reportedly took place in the Australian town of Fernvale when a few giant birds visited the area, causing panic among the town’s residents.

Thunderbird, also known as Roc, is the nomenclature used by Native Americans to refer to bird-like creatures with reptile features that are believed to be related to the extinct pterosaurs.

    Photo is probably a Frigate bird, or similar sea bird.
