The Mothman Legend. http://www.gods-and-monsters.com/mothman-legend.html
June 6, 1998. Web. May 8, 2013 This is the story of the half-human/half-moth like creature that is known the world over as Mothman.Plus, some history on where Mothman was sighted the most. Mothman is now a legendary staple of West Virginia folklore. A couple of years ago, the City of Point Pleasant dedicated a statue to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Mothman. A majority of the sightings of the Mothman creature were from an area just north of Point Pleasant
known as the T.N.T. Area. The first sightings of the moth-like creature.
On November 15, 1966, two young, married couples from Point Pleasant, David and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, were traveling late at night in the Scarberrys' car. They stopped the car, and reportedly discovered that the lights were the glowing red eyes of a large animal, "shaped like a man, but bigger, maybe six and a half or seven feet tall, with big wings folded against its back". History Other sightings include reports of Mothman standing in the front yards of people's homes. One such sighting was reported on November 26 in Charleston, west of my location, where Mothman was reported to have been standing in the front yard of a woman's home. Later that day, two children in the Saint Albans area of Kanawha County had reported the creature flying over town. Sightings of Mothman were reported as far east as Campbells Creek and Cedar Grove in Kanawha County. One of the last few sightings of Mothman occured on Janurary 11, 1967. This sighting came just months before the collapse of the Silver Bridge on the night of December 15, It has also been said that Mothman had appeared to warn people about the impending disaster that was about to befall the area a little over a year later. For this creature to appear and then disappear from the one year almost to the day is a mystery. For one, sightings of Mothman in the general area suddenly stopped after the collapse of the Silver Bridge. However, sightings of Mothman have not only been reported in my area. Sightings of the cryptid have been reported the world over, possibly, for centuries before it was spotted here, As to whether or not Mothman will make another appearance in the area, it remains to be seen. I for one believe that Mothman may, in fact, one day return to the state of West Virginia. As for when it may be, we will just have to wait and see. Most people living in the area at the time of both the sightings and the disaster saw Mothman as a demonic presence. I for one think that Mothman was a warning as to what was about to happen. I also believe that Mothman was not of demonic origins. I for one think that Mothman was a warning as to what was about to happen. I also believe that Mothman was not of demonic origins. Theories The appearance of all these phenomena appeared to revolve around regular sightings of the more fearsome visitor of all - a winged humanoid that quickly became known as the 'Mothman'. Mothman tended to hang about the disused North Power Plant, which was part of the dormant West Virginia Ordnance Works complex. The area was used as a shooting range and 'lovers lane', and kind of unofficial common. Theories On 14 November 1966 in a field near Salem, West Virgina, Newell Partridge, a building contractor, was watching TV when suddenly, the picture blanked out and was replaced by a fine herringbone pattern. A screaching sound came through the speaker. His dog, Bandit, was on the front porch, agitated and howling. Partridge went outside with a flash light to investigate and was frightened by a pair of red glowing eyes staring back at him from the barn across the yard. When Bandit ran toward the eyes, Partridge ran inside to fetch his gun, but spent the night with the loaded shotgun propped up next to him, too afraid to go outside. http://animal.discovery.com/tv-shows/lost-tapes/videos/mothman.htm http://www.dailymotion.com/video/xc8uw9_the-mothman-prophecies-soundtrack-1_music
