Not far from Rockford, a bat-type creature was spotted.

There are two kinds of people in this world. The ones that witness strange beings like monsters, ghosts, ghouls, aliens, and things that you have to see to believe. The others go through their whole life without ever seeing something suspicious. That's me. I've never seen anything unusual when it comes to unique beings.

The people that do, have it happen all the time. I'm not sure if they're some sort of magnet to that kind of stuff. I'm not judging but maybe they are just in the right state of mind. Of course, this time of year, there are occurrences all the time.

Beyond the normal ghost activity, I've been hearing about a new creature sighting. The encounters have been not too far from Rockford.


"According to the reports, a person in Carol Stream spotted the 4-foot-tall, bat-like creature over the summer while driving on Morton Road around 3 a.m. That's when I saw its bat-like wings as it flew through nearby backyards. It definitely wasn't a large owl. I figured it was a crane that got spooked by coyotes or something but they are not nocturnal."

Some think it might be another appearance of the infamous Mothman who has been seen around Northern Illinois. I don't think it is because he's described as very tall with red-eyes. This is a much smaller creature. I believe we have another one to add to the list.

Have you ever had an encounter with something or someone strange and unexplainable?
