Recent Ropen Sightings
What ropen encounter has been more thoroughly investigated than the Lakewood, California, sighting of June 19, 2012? For a little over one year, a game camera set up in that backyard recorded 14,333 photos, images triggered by movements. Although no obvious ropen was photographed, eyewitnesses were interviewed.

Cryptozoologist looks into storm channel
Lakewood Pterosaur The lady was sitting under her gazebo, playing with her computer, when the family dog began barking wildly. Possums and rats had been common in the neighborhood, for a storm channel gives many creatures access to fruit trees and garbage cans. But Rex would not stop barking. The lady also heard strange burping noises and at first assumed that Rex was responsible. As she realized the dog was not simultaneously making both noises, she stood up and walked out from under the gazebo. That’s when she saw the “dragon-pterodactyl.” It was sitting on a phone line, just above her, but faced away from her. When she yelled, it flew away, diving into the canopy of a tree in the next block. The creature had no feathers. The wingspan was about six feet and the long tail ended in a diamond-shaped structure, clearly visible, for it had been only about eighteen feet from the end of the lady’s nose. The cryptozoology author Jonathan Whitcomb set up a game camera near where the ropen had been perched, for a dilapidated fence was thought to be an entrance to a secluded area where the creature could have been nesting. Too bad that one year’s worth of game camera photos revealed nothing more wild than common wildlife: rats, maybe a possum, and birds. Oh, and most notable: Rex. The next- door neighbor tore down the potential nesting area and the game camera turned out to have a weakness, a delay trigger which prevented it from capturing images of anything that could have been flying quickly past that area. Griffith Park Dragons According to the nonfiction book Searching for Ropens and Finding God, two sightings in Los Angeles County  occurred ten weeks apart,  in March and May of 2013.  Both encounters were just east of Griffith Park, with the first sighting being of three “dragons” and the second one of just one flying creature.
