This is a flying fox. Not an aswang or a “witch” We live in a modern age and still we mis-inform our people just to get publicity.
The giant golden-crowned flying fox (Acerodon jubatus), also known as the golden-capped fruit bat, is a rare megabat and one of the largest bats in the world. The species is endangered and is currently facing the possibility of extinction because of poaching and forest destruction. It is endemic to forests in the Philippines.
You go around hunt for aswangs na? Sige ubusin nyo mga kawawang flying fox.
Okay translation: So you guys are going to hunt for witches? Go ahead, totally extinct their species.
