Scott Corrales has translated a new report of a “Batman” being seen in Mexico, as recently as March 2009. It is said to look like this:
“Mexico: State of Chihuahua Terrorized by ‘Man-Bat’ – A Report” by Professor Ana Luisa Cid, details that the creature is a “very tall entity, standing some 2 meters tall, with two pairs of wings (one pair larger than the other). Its face is covered in fur and has red, bloodshot eyes. Also reported are a pair of small, kangaroo type hands that it held loosely, as though it lacked any strength in them.”

Professor Cid said, “Many think that it was just a myth, while others associate it with Mothman.”
The story may be seeing an unfolding of incidents as bizarre as those mentioned in The Mothman Prophecies: An Investigation Into the Mysterious American Visits of the Infamous Feathery Garunda (New York: Saturday Review Press/E. P. Dutton, 1975).

There seems to be full-scale panic over the above or another Batman seen in La Junta, Guerrero, Mexico. The witnesses of this winged humanoid with a fur-covered face and a height of 2 meters are also tying the reports to local livestock deaths.
“This creature was seen in the vicinity of Cimbraplay, near Saenz Guerrero, where several sheep were found dead in recent days at three different ranches. They had all been slain in the same fashion: a large cut to the neck and another on part of the tail,” reports El Heraldo de Chihuahua.

Appreciation to PH for the heads up on this news, and to the work of Scott Corrales for his bicultural investigative efforts.
Happy Easter, Passover, and Mothman enlightenment, which happens every April, it appears. Thank you for your support and do today…

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
