‘There was a sudden, horrific, rumbling noise above us and I was fearful for my life. It rattled the windows of the kennel and hurt my ears dreadfully. I looked up to see a winged monster in the sky. It was far bigger than any bird I had ever seen and had large, spreading wings. It left a trail of grey smoke as it flew by. Was it my imagination? It appeared to have sharp teeth and menacing eyes glaring down at me.’
