Sighting of two Pterosaurs in Central Kentucky

This past Thursday I was delighted to find an email from a man who had a pterosaur sighting in a rural area of Kentucky. I quote part of what he reported to me:

I just found your site and thought I’d share a story with someone who actually might take me seriously for once. I live in Lamero, Kentucky [central part of state]. Its a small, rural area located along the Daniel Boone National Forest. I have a friend who lives . . . about twelve miles north of me. Its a wooded area as well, with a small fishing lake nearby as well as several caves. And I’m talking a lot of caves . . . a spelunker’s paradise.

Last July, I was visiting my friend at his home [near Renfro Valley, Kentucky]. It was just a little after sunset, so it was still daylight outside. The weather was nice, so we were outside . . . watching aircraft flying by. This is something we do all the time, hoping to maybe catch a glimpse of a ufo, or anything out of the ordinary. Well, we got our wish that evening.

Brandon, my friend, shouted behind me,”What . . . is that?” Approaching us from the east and flying westward were two very large animals. [They flapped their wings] about once every second or two . . . They appeared to be a brownish color and had every characteristic of a pterodactyl, from head to tail. . . . they were roughly 15+ feet long . . . flying at least 40 mph . . .

I had another witness right there and we both agreed that the best word we could use to describe what we saw was Pterodactyl. Naturally, everyone around . . . thinks we are just trying to pull their leg . . . I really really wish that I could have gotten to a camera, but there just wasn’t enough time.

[From an eyewitness in Bowling Green, Kentucky] “Today I opened my back door around 4:30 p.m. . . . and I noticed a large bird in the sky flying above me. I thought it seemed strange because I [saw] a tail with a spade-like end; also the wingspan was a lot larger than any bird I have ever seen around here. The wings did not flutter rapidly: Each wing stroke was steady and powerful. . . .

“I thought about running in to grab my camera but I knew that by the way it was flying that it would have been gone before I got back, so I watched in awe as this bird streaked [across] the sky . . .”

. . . As I was driving over a small bridge . . . it flew up from under the bridge beside my truck . . . and out and over a field. I watched it from the side and the underneath. . . . had no feathers . . .

But consider two critical points that he ignores: the strongest eyewitness-testimony accounts and the philosophical foundations of the conflict . . . What critical points! He could have done better if he had looked carefully, rather than assume that eyewitnesses had looked carelessly.
