Oklahoma Family Is Being Terrorized By A Mystery Banging At Night: A mysterious creature is terrifying an Oklahoma family. Carol Dillin says her family is awakened at night by something banging on the backdoor. She’s put security cameras up, two fake owls to scare whatever creature it could be away and even resorted to trying a skeleton as a “scarecrow.” Still, the banging continues, but at least now there’s footage. It’s a scallop winged thing and Dillin may finally have an answer. While she thinks it’s a bat, two experts say it is a large Luna, Sphinx, or Polyphemus Moth. Yes, they can cause a thud. Despite having the answer, the creature keeps banging, so she’s getting an estimate to enclose the back porch.
