Large Black Cat Observed Near Fort Garland, Colorado Location: Trinchera Ranch Road near Trinchera Creek, East of Fort Garland, Colorado Date: November 2017
It was at least four times bigger than the large bats with about a 7 meters (about 20 foot) wing span, and it glided while they flapped. It swooped down to the water, and on the wing plucked a 60-70cm (about 2 foot) fish effortlessly out the water, carrying it off, thrashing, in one claw.
"It turned its head and it's large, yellow eyes resembled the moon which had been vibrant and bright all weekend. The shoulders stood approximately four to five feet tall, its body was as long as the lane I was in..."
My sixth grade self screamed, turned, and ran back inside, leaving my mother and dog out to fend for themselves.
Something was breathing outside my window so loud it woke me out of a sound sleep. My step mother confided in me she saw a tall hairy man run across the back yard at night.
