Encounters with a winged humanoid

Location: Urbanizacion Mirador de Bairoa, Caguas, Puerto Rico
Date: End of July 2019
Time: 2:00 a.m.
The witness, Mr. Eddie Oquendo, was at home in bed but awake, as he had not been able to fall asleep. Mr. Oquendo had, in his home, 6 dogs, all of them Pitbull breeds, which he raises at his house. He treated his dogs like his family and would not let anyone else take care of them.
Around 2 am Mr. Oquendo suddenly heard some loud noises coming from his patio. Afraid he grabbed his gun and went to investigate the racket. The night was clear. When he looked, he saw in one corner one of his pet dogs, “Crusher”, trembling and visibly afraid. Suddenly Oquendo heard a loud sound similar to what the wings of a very large bird would do when taking flight, except that it was much stronger, as if belonging to something very large and heavy. When he looked in the direction of the sound, he was able to see some sort of humanoid figure with huge pointy wings (similar to a Pterodactyl) which was shaking very fast as it took flight, leaving at incredible speed. He saw what appeared to be bent legs on the creature. Even though he had his gun in hand, Oquendo did not dare fire, since he lived in a residential area and the houses were very close together and he was afraid that someone might get hurt by an errand bullet.
Oquendo estimated that he was about 40 feet from the creature and was able to see that it was about 10-feet in diameter from wing to wing. The rest of the dogs, which would normally bark aggressively at any intruder in Oquendo’s property, remained quiet and seemed scared. Oquendo was convinced that the bizarre flying creature had attempted to grab his dog “Crusher” but had not been successful, possibly because of the dog’s weight.
Two weeks later something similar occurred. Around the same time, Mr. Oquendo again heard the loud racket in his patio. This time when Oquendo ran out he noticed three of his dogs huddled together in a corner, one on top of each, visibly trembling with fear. Upon going outside Oquendo again saw the same creature, but this time much closer, but it immediately took flight upon seeing the witness and leaving at high speed. One of Oquendo’s neighbors who owns a Great Dane (very aggressive and fearless) reported that something had frightened his dog so bad that the animal broke through the front door trying to hide in the house. Later, some of Oquendo’s other neighbors heard something trying to break one of their windowpanes in an apparent attempt to break into the house. The husband prohibited the wife from talking about the incident.
