Witnesses to the flying humanoid sightings over McCook and Possum Hollow Woods recently submitted silhouettes of the creatures they claimed to have seen to Lon Strickler of Phantoms and Monsters.  Strickler had originally asked the witnesses for sketches of the creature, but many people are reluctant to try to draw something out of fear--not of being laughed at for saying they saw a flying humanoid, but rather for their dearth of artistic ability.  The Singular Fortean Society's Emily Bartos cleaned up the pictures provided, and added some detail based on the witnesses' descriptions, to help give a better idea of what they claimed to have seen.
