Calling Officer Jim Chee: Another workboot has been found along the banks of the Rio Grande -- also with a leg in it. That makes two workboots with two severed legs yet no one has reported anyone missing. Kind of sad.

Strange sightings of a huge flying creature have been reported as recently as six months ago. Is this a monster or a myth?
Guadalupe Cantu III was busy working his newspaper route but he says the big news of that day 10 years ago flew right over his car. He says he's seen what most have not -- an unidentified flying object.
"We were afraid that it would come at us. So we stayed in the car till it passed this way," witness Guadalupe Cantu III said. "This thing's all feathers, all black. Much bigger than me. It looked at us. It had very stooped-up shoulders." The beast has been spotted from the Rio Grande Valley
to the mountains of New Mexico. "[It] looked like what was possibly two people standing on top of a mountian up there, " said David Zander, who saw the monster in New Mexico. "Something that big...I guess it kinda makes you feel like it could come over and carry you off if it wanted to."
San Antonio's Ken Gerhard has written a book on these dark birds as big as planes with wingspans from 15 to 20 feet! Native Americans called them thunderbirds: depicted in their art, their flapping wings were said to cause explosive noises.
"What is interesting is that the reports of these giant, raptor-like birds do continue into modern times," said Gerhard, a cryptozoologist. Cryptozoology ist he study of and search for legendary animals to proove their existence.
"I believe there is a good chance that alot of large, prehistoric animals, if you will, remain
undiscovered by modern science," he said.
So what could the giant birds be? Some witness sketches eerily resemble prehistoric creatures like the petronadon of 160 million years ago. However, Gerhard theorizes it could be a creature that is a little less extinct -- if that's possible -- a pteratorn. "These are the surviving ancestors of modern condors and vultures. They lived up until 6,000 years ago, we know for sure, in parts of North America," Gerhard said. "In fact, over 100 specimens have been recovered from the La Brea tar pits of California.
