This author lists cases of "big birds", and in the list, indicates:

"Ontario, Canada, Ramore."


En 1947, un oiseau géant fit de nombreux ravages parmi les troupeaux de la région de Ramore, au Canada. Selon les éleveurs, il avait des serres énormes, un bec recourbé, des yeux jaunes et le plumage noir.


Albert Rosales indicates that near Ramore, Ontario, Canada, in 1947 at various times, local farmers reported seeing a gigantic black bird-like creature that would attack and injure their cattle. It hnd a hooked beak, huge claws, and large yellow eyes "the size of silver dollars".

The source is indicated as "'Universo Prohibido' list".

Points to consider:

The [wb1] report, without source refeence, can be found on dozens of crypozoology or other websites, with identical content, such as:


It seems nobody can tell what the source is, for this extremely poor one-line report.

Anyway, this has nothing to do with ufology: there is no UFO, and birds, even big, are likely not "UFO occupants".
