Describe sighting in detail:
I've seen this creature twice in the same area. While driving home from my mother's one night there appeared to be a house on fire but no flames. Because it was so late at night I didn't want to report a house fire unless I was sure. I also didn't want to leave a sleeping family in danger, so I turned off the blacktop onto the gravel road and drove about a half mile down to look at the home. It wasn't on fire. There was what initially appeared to be a person sitting on the roof.
After it turned and looked at us, it was clear it was not a human. it had gargoyle type wings, glowing eyes, and I couldn't get away from it fast enough.
The second time, it was around the same time at night. This time that thing came at us. It spread its wings and swooped off the roof and across the field, no flapping of wings and it moved quickly. It landed on the side of the road, raised its arms over its head and threw something large and head shaped at the front of the car.
It then flew right up to the drivers side rear passenger window and looked in the car. I'm not sure what it threw and I wanted to turn around and look but the other passengers were on the floor of the car crying and hysterical.
Everyone in the car saw it. It followed our car all the way into Ida grove at 70 mph (yes I know I was speeding but if this thing was chasing you...I would've gone faster but there are a lot of deer).
when I got home I checked and there was a large round dent in the front of my car where it had been hit. I've looked everywhere for similar sightings and have found none. The closest cryptid I've found is the Mothman but that still isn't right. It had large round red eyes that glowed, not like it was reflecting light but instead the source of the light, gargoyle or bat like wings, over six feet tall, moved rapidly, glided instead of flapping and liked more like the thing off jeepers creepers.

To me this sounds a lot like a Mothman sighting. If anyone in this area has seen this unknown creature or you have read a similar report from Iowa, then drop us a message and let us know about it. A thanks to Angel to sending in the report.
