Article from the April 26 1890 Tombstone Epitaph

The following news article was pulled from a April 26, 1890 copy of the Tombstone Epitaph, the old west's most famous newspaper.

FOUND IN THE DESERT A STRANGE WINGED MONSTER DISCOVERED AND KILLED ON THE HUACHUCA DESERT

A winged monster, resembling a huge alligator with an extremely elongated tail and an immense pair of wings, was found on the desert between the Whetsone and Huachuca mountains last Sunday by two ranchers who were returning home from the Huachucas. The creature was evidently greatly exhausted by a long flight and when discovered was able to fly but a short distance at a time. After the first shock of wild amazement had passed, the two men, who were on horseback and armed with Winchester rifles, regained sufficient courage to pursue the monster and after an exciting chase of several miles succeeded in getting near enough to open fire with their rifles and wounding it.
