The Mothman

Strong enough to make a bridge fall

How it started

The Mothman was first sighted in 1967 in an old WWII bunker area around Point Pleasent, Virgina. The bunker was a local hangout for teenagers. A group of teens claimed to have saw a big bird like creature fly over them. The next night a sister and brother went to prove that it was a fake. They ended up getting attacked by the creature. It is said that the creature appears before disasters. A few days later, the silver bridge collapsed, killing around 46 people. People living near the bridge think the Mothman is to blame.


It is claimed to be 6ft.10in. with a fifteen foot wing span. All the reports on the mothman are about the eyes. Huge, glowing, bright red eyes. It is attracted to light like a moth. It likes to hang around old bridges.

How does the mothman act when around people


All of the incounters have been in one spot. The mothman acts aggresivley because I think ot's trying to scare people away from its territory. It also seems curious about humans because it doesn't know what we are. I don't believe the mothman is real because there is no really close up, clear picture of it and there is no evidence that enyone had an incounter.
