CHANNAHON, Ill. — A woman said she encountered an unidentified flying creature in Northern Illinois.
Carol, a 58-year-old retired Channahon resident whose last name was omitted for anonymity purposes, said she came upon the oddity last Thursday as she let her dogs out in her backyard.
“I turned on our patio light and seen it,” says Carol. “We keep a heated birdbath on our patio. Is it possible this thing was getting a drink before I scared it into flight.”
She claims the unknown animal flew away after about 20 seconds.
“But its flight pattern was straight up!” she added. “In a eerie slow butterfly movement, but straight up.”
