It can't be mothman if it has bat like wings!
It would have to be called ... batman!
A question if I may ...
Was there a Robin in the trees as well?
I am very skeptical of such sightings. I am very sure there is an excuse for not having photos after getting the kids inside the house.
No reports of anyone going inside to get a gun ... in America.
Sounds like a shot gun would have been the weapon of choice.
Possibly a remote control flying wing prank-a-toy.

I can't imagine that they would seek the fertile land of Gary...but then again it is Gary.
What Amitrano saw that night was one of 55 reported Chicago-area sightings of a flying humanoid in 2017. Accounts have varied from "a large, black, bat-like being with glowing red eyes” to "a big owl” or something that resembled a "Gothic gargoyle” or a “Mothman.” Most eyewitnesses spotted the being in-flight, but some particularly disturbing reports detailed it dropping onto hoods of cars, peering in through windows, and swooping down at bystanders. The alleged “Mothman” has captured the attention of the city, from local media articles and rap songs to Halloween costumes and countless speculative Facebook groups. Amitrano later remembered seeing something on Facebook about the sightings, and as he read more about it he contacted Lon Strickler, a self-described Fortean researcher who’s been compiling all of the Chicago sightings on his website Phantoms and Monsters. Strickler—whose book Mothman Dynasty: Chicago's Winged Humanoids was released last month—has been investigating paranormal sightings since the late 1970s and claims to have seen both a “Mothman” and Bigfoot. Since the rash of sightings started in February, he’s been painstakingly interviewing witnesses and documenting their accounts.
