the true Mothman stories are from 1966/1967.
On December 15th, 1967 the bridge that crossed the Ohio river to Point Pleasant, VA collapsed.
46 people died.
Locals believed the 'mothman' was trying to warn them of the impending doom.
Unfortunately, the movie 'the mothman prophecies' really had nothing to do with the real story.
Many of the stories of the Mothman centered on a former TNT plant that sat empty and abandoned on the edge of town. The building sat in the middle of
a wooded area, where few people tended to venture. Nearby was an animal preserve, and some believed the Mothman could find food there and blend in
with the other animals in the area. There were also stories that the creature had hid there for years before finally being seen.
Personally I believe the Mothman was a government experiment gone wrong. I seriously doubt it is still alive today. But who am I to say?....
BUT I will say in 2002 my husband and I took a 4 day boat trip up and back down the Ohio river. One night we 'parked/camped' in a small creek that
went around a small island. at that time we did not have gps, just a good old fashioned paper map. So we kind of knew where we were, we thought.
It was a full moon that night (seriously, we planned it that way) and we both commented on how wierdly quiet it was that night. there was no sign of
life on the little island, not even coon or deer tracks. We heard no noises at all in the night, no birds, no owls, no frogs, nothing. Very odd for
October in Ohio/West Virginia.
the next day we went upriver some more and realized we had spent that night near point pleasant. It was just odd. Maybe the mothman is still around?
eating all the wildlife ?
