The Crimean Crow
During the Crimean War (1854-1856) a creature (or creatures) was spotted on March 15th during a 24 hour truce between Russian and Turkish forces. The truce was only called because of superstitions associated with the “Ides of March” (historical significance: the day Brutus and 60 others assassinated Julius Caesar.) A short time after midnight several men were shot approaching a Russian camp, there are two accounts of what led those men to walk/run into the Russian camp. According to a survivor, he was apart of a squad of 5 Russian soldiers going to ambush the Turkish once the truce was lifted at midnight. When the group reached the halfway point the skies allegedly blackened and the men became distracted by a large creature that was described as a headless crow. One person in the group had to force the group to continue but by that point they had become disoriented and began to head back to their camp. Now this is the part of the story that differentiates between the two accounts. In one account the soldiers were mistaken for enemies forces and shot by guards on duty with only one surviver while in another account the guards shot five enemy Turkish troops fleeing towards their camp away from a swarm of bats. Some people believe this to be the earliest known sighting of a Mothman type creature.
