In this series of National Cryptid Society’s case files, you will read what the witnesses have experienced in their own words.
Keep an open mind when reading these accounts, and also remember one’s perception and memory of an event can be influenced by the emotions felt at the time of the occurrence.

NCS Case File #45: Strange Giant Bird with Freaky Hole-Mouth in Helsinki
Submitted by Ben
Location, Helsinki, Finland
Date: October, 2013
“I was walking home after a hard day at school it was getting dark as it was winter. I heard the usual noises of forest which I was passing through.
Then I heard a distinct loud flapping noise I looked up and a massive bird flew over me it wasn’t like anything I have seen before its claws where as big as grown mans foot.
There is only one distinct thing I saw and that was it had no beak; there was only a small hole in the center of the face and the eyes where at each side of the head. It had black feathers and seemed to be flying (approximately) 30mph.”
