A Frightening Encounter with a Winged Humanoid in Chile

by: Albert S. Rosales

Location: San Pedro de Atacama, Chile.
Date: July 23, 2003.
Time: 9:05 p.m.

A young student, Diego, and two of his friends, Jonathan & Carlos had gone to visit Diego’s grandfather’s cabin. Upon arriving the trio realized that the elderly gentleman was not home so they decide to stay in for the night and prepare dinner. Later as they were getting ready to eat they began to hear two dogs emitting strange growling noises, howls and run back and forth as if running scare. A few minutes later the men began to hear loud banging and scratching noises at the front door of the cabin, which seemed to increase in violence and intensity. Terrified, the men ran to a corner of the cabin, knelt down and began to pray, thinking that some kind of “beast” was trying to enter the cabin. Five minutes later the banging noises abruptly ceased. At this point Diego gets up and looks out the window and does not see anything outside. He opens the door and calls the other two men to the front door.

As the three men stand around recovering from their initial shock they suddenly see about 15 meters away, seemingly floating between some pear trees, a bizarre winged humanoid about 1.5 meters in height, sporting a pair of wings at least 3.5 meters in width. The strange humanoid appeared to be totally covered in shiny hairless skin that appeared to have just come out of the water. It had a large head and a small beak. On top of its head it had what appeared to be a small crest that appeared to be missing a piece in the middle. Its eyes were huge and completely black in color, but despite their color they appeared to glow in the dark.

The terrified trio thought at first that they were witnessing a creature from the prehistoric past, since its wings resembled somewhat those of an ancient pterodactyl. It seemed to have bony protrusions on its wings. The creature’s legs were thick and robust in nature that ended in powerful claw like protrusions. Suddenly the winged humanoid moved its wing, causing the nearest tree to sway back as if rocked by a strong wind and with incredibly agility it rose up and disappeared into the darkness. The terrified witnesses ran back into the cabin.
