It has the head of a bat, red eyes, purple skin and wings of a pterodactyl. What is it?

It is the newest creepy monster which people say is stalking small animals near Mount St Helens, which they have now dubbed Batsquatch.

Paul Dale Roberts, paranormal investigator received a phone call one day reporting a sighting of this strange creature near Mount Shasta.

Until now, the only documented sighting of the Batsquatch was reported in 1994 by mountaineer Butch Whittaker. Whittaker claimed to have taken several photos of the creature as it flew over head in the light of day. These photos have never been released and some doubt that they even exist at all.

Mount Shasta itself already has its fair bit of weirdness in the past, with reports of UFO’s, bigfoot, ghosts, the Lemurians and even visitiations from venusians.

Some people theorize that when Mount St. Helens erupted, it also opened up a dimensional portal, through which strange creatures emerged, one of which is the creature known as Batsquatch. This creature has since moved on to Mount Shasta.

Sightings of Batsquatch date back to the 1980’s, but it is still seen up into present times.

Over the intervening decades, people have noticed that a number of small animals have been savagely attacked and slaughtered in the area. Is there indeed a strange creature causing this carnage?

Other people say that the creature could be linked to the infamous ‘Mothman’ and could be a portent of a future devastating eruption of Mount Shasta, which hasn’t erupted since 1786.

Some investigators, who doubt the existence of Batsquatch, have pointed out the similarities between this strange creature and others like El Chupacabra and the Jersey Devil, noting that sightings of the Batsquatch maybe nothing more than the misidentification of an already known, unknown species.

Alongside the “winged primate” theory, an accepted theory is that these creatures are a new species of fruit bat; despite reports depicting the animal as carnivorous.

Whatever it is, it is a fascinating addition to the pantheon of strangeness in the Mount Shasta region.
