The following is a very short newspaper clipping from November of 1966 titled "Four More Claim Seeing Big Red-Eyed Bird"
POINT PLEASANT, W. Va. - (UPI) -
The mystery of the flying "whatever it was" continued here today.
Four more people reported seeing a huge, bird-like creature with red eyes. A farmer also said his German Shepherd chased something "with red reflectors" and then vanished.
