This past November, the news in New Zealand was on the rescue of miners. Now reports of strange flying creatures, perhaps nocturnal and living in caves, relate to some of the countryside of New Zealand.
Across New Zealand, North Islands farmland and countryside, there have been for almost a century tales from farmers and hunters, of a horrid winged beast, with long sharp fangs lining its narrow, beak-like jaws. Its eyes gleam in the night, where it can be seen flying overhead, silhouetted in the moon. Farmers despise it because it tears chunks from their cattle in the nighttime. It is called “The Flying Slasher.”
