TextThe screeching sounds they made were unholy and so loud you could probably have heard them a mile away. The way their heads spun around with their huge piercing eyes and huge hooked beaks still haunts me to this day. At first we didnt know what the hell they were. We were in the middle of nowhere running blindly through huge tobacco plants trying to get away but their fight followed us for some reason. We thought they were trying to divebomb and attack us at first. We got ourselves together enough to make torches out of giant tobacco stalks.
TextWe were trying to fend them off with the torches when one knocked the other to the ground and we all just watched aghast in the firelight as these two huge creatures bit, clawed, wrestled and tried beating eachother with their huge wings. It wasnt until then we noticed that they were owls. One just got up and flew away into the woods and the other chased it. A minute later we heard the unholy screeching coming from the far off treeline. We got our wits about us best we could and got the hell out of there.
TextNow the drawings and eyewitness accounts of the mothman all state that it had huge wings, was the size of a small person and had its eyes in its chest. All of which sound exactly like what we saw that night. Not to say that an owl has its eyes in its chest but could easily be mistaken for having them there by those caught off guard by the huge creature. Ive searched owls online. I have not found any that are as close to being as freakin huge as the monsters we saw that night. They were definetly owls. We got a long long look at both of them as they fought on the ground.
TextNow if youre familiar with the mothman youve had to have seen an artists drawing of someones close encouter of what the creature looked like Im sure you can find a link with the now infamous pencil sketch as described by a witness from one of the early sightings. They looked like that. Almost exactly. Owls are actually very vicious predators and quite aggresive. The drawings look like what the giant owl would have looked like to an unpleasantly suprised person just as they turned tail and took off. Going to do more owl searching. The mothman thing is new to me but all the eyewitness accounts and artists recreations describe what we saw that night in terrifying detail and the creatures behaviour as described by eyewitnesses sounds like them too. Very aggresive and territorial. Will not hesitate at all to attack a person it sees as trespassing.
TextThey were definitly owls but what owl has a 10ft+ wingspan? They were that big. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The biggest diferences between what we saw and what some others call the mothman is that these things had the biggest talons Ive ever seen. Big enough to fully grasp all the way around a mans head and then some. They had no talons or claws on the tips of their wings that we saw. It has been said the mothman has talons or claws on the tips of their wings. If the mothman is truly some other creature I dont think even it would have gotten in the way of these beasts. Ill never ever forget it. Your thoughts please thank you...SoS..
What we saw was no bird, much less an owl or a crane. Its body wasn't even close to either of those. I could see the muscles in the arms and legs of the Mothman. They were human-like. Not even close to a bird of any kind.
I have noticed how the Point Pleasant Mothman differs a good bit from further credible sightings and how their characteristics changed. I think they got that big from the genetically altered tobacco that got into the foodchain somehow. Sigh...read my Mothman Owl Theory post for more details. Or is it that the giant owl explanation is just to simple for some folks who just want to believe its some supernatural creature or an alien?
