The Truth of Mothman

Author: Rhonda Moxley

In a dark town along the Ohio River in Point Pleasant West Virginia. On November 12, 1966 two couples both recently married saw a tall, figure in front of them. The creature had big red eyes and wings. They tried to get away but the creature could fly 105 mph. What is this creature you ask? He is very known as the mothman. Nobody has spoken up about see this creature until now. After news has got out more people of the town has spoken up. Over the next thirteen months they had more than 100 reports saying they saw “the bird” or “big bird” also known as mothman. Many didn’t want to say anything because they didn’t want t get called crazy.

A woman skeptical after hearing this decides to go the “TNT” the area where the couple saw him, to see if she can see him for herself. She was carrying her child the car and saw a tall like man with big wings outside her car. She was too scared to drive after that. On December 15,1967 the Silver Bridge  collapsed killing 46 people. Many come to think that mothman came to warning of the collapse. Later they came out with a film called “The Mothman Prophecies” and it orientated from mothman. The movie aired in 2002 with Richard Gere staring as Klein the main person in the movie. Klein wakes up in Point Pleasant with no idea how he got there, he then sees a creature his wife saw before she passed.
