The Mothman

Many states have their own version of a “monster”. In West Virginia, this creature is known as the Mothman. The first Mothman sighting was in mid-November 1966. It was seen by two young couples, Roger and Linda Scarberry, and Steve and Mary Mallette. They said this creature was a “large flying man with ten-foot wings.” They also claimed that while they were driving this odd creature continued to follow them. This all took place in the woods of Point Pleasant.

After the first sighting of the Mothman, more and more sightings were being shared. Two volunteer firemen who saw it said it was a “large bird with red eyes”. Another person claiming to have seen the creature was Contractor Newell, he said that when he aimed a flashlight at a creature in a nearby field, its eyes glowed “like bicycle reflectors”.

Things like this are so easy to believe and not believe. With so many “sightings” and claims of seeing the Mothman it almost makes it hard to not to believe that he’s real. Talk of the MothMan has been going on for forever now. Do you think that one day it will just stop and not be thought about anymore? Or do you think he’s still out lurking and waiting to make another appearance.
