My wife is telling me what to write, she says:
She knows Catawissa and the rocks and mountains, and Shamokin, as well. Her grandmother lived there, and she did too, for a while.
Her sighting happened at the campgrounds in New Media.
There were about twenty five people present.
It (the pond) is a man-made pond more than 50 yards wide, so you can imagine how big the bird was! (see my other posts)
Like a pterodactyl, except that the beak and claws were a different color. It looked like it had stretched black spandex for skin. That is about the
best way to describe it.
That, and it had a really long, hooked at the end, beak, and big claws, but way big, too, as if one of them could grab your head, (really long, think
Freddie Krueger, nails.)
It was one color, black, and the claws and beak were both the same dark yellow/brown color.
It screeched, everybody ran.
It circled the pond twice, dove down, then came through the campground, but everybody was hiding, so it flew away. It kept on screeching throughout
The police were called, and they got there to try to calm the hysteria. They checked the trees, the campgrounds, and yes, the cemetery!
It would have been the New Media police, and it would have probably been 1978. (if you could do a check on that, that would be interesting.)
