Phil Mantle, a mate of mine for nearly fifteen years and editor of the excellent new magazine UFO Matrix wrote to me with this account of an encounter with a flying snake-like beast in Canada:
On August 7th 2003, while on vacation at camp with family (since 1994) I had decided to take a late shower-near 1:00 am. Camp at that time of night is just the sounds of insects and frogs. I was at the back of the washrooms where the shower stall rooms are located. While standing near a picnic table having a smoke, a strange snake like creature 'flies' pass me. The closeness would be about 6-7 feet away from me. It was about 5-6 feet above the ground. Due to its speed and closeness, along with one single light on a pole for illumination, helped me identify a creature not yet catalogue in this world of today.
