Fergus Waffles, a 46-year-old geography teacher at a Singapore school, today said that he was walking his dog in the Istana Woodneuk area when he spotted the alleged creature earlier this morning.

“I was walking in the woods with my dog near an abandoned house at about 5:50 a.m.,” Waffles told Cryptozoology News. “I peered inside the window of the house and saw what appeared to be a winged humanoid hanging from a door frame.My dog saw the creature and remained completely still and silent while staring in its direction,” he added.

Waffles claims the humanoid was still with just its chest “moving up and down as if it were breathing”.

“I was very startled at first, but the creature didn’t notice me because as soon as I saw it I took cover behind a nearby bush.”

The teacher said the unknown being was about 6 feet tall with an approximated 10-foot wingspan.

“It was hard to tell because the wings were wrapped around its body, similar to a sleeping bat,” he said. “It was black and had webbed wings similar to a bat. It had a human head but slightly more round and it had hair. It was like the Mothman.”

The encounter reportedly took about 15 seconds before the man left the area.

Istana Woodneuk, an abandoned royal palace originally owned by Johor Sultan Abu Bakar ibni Daing Ibrahim, is considered a “haunted area” by the locals.

Encounters with flying humanoids around the world have been reported throughout the years and some people believe them to be “angels” or “demons”.

Last year, Nick Malicki, who calls himself the Nephilim Hunter, released footage of what he says was a “Nephilim” creature attached to the roof of an undisclosed cave in Australia.

The Mothman, a ghostly winged humanoid, was reportedly first seen on November, 12, 1966 in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. The original report stated that five men were digging a grave at the local cemetery when they spotted the cryptid. Three days later, two different couples reported seeing a “flying human” with red-glowing eyes chasing their vehicles.

According to cryptozoological literature, the creature is believed to be able to predict upcoming events that have the potential to impact human life. The Mothman Prophecies, written by parapsychologist author John Keel in 1975, painstakingly describes the events that lead to the collapse of the Silver Bridge. The story was later brought to the big screen by director Mark Pellington and starring Richard Gere on a film with the book’s name.
