if you read it, it says he tried taking pictures but just got black with his cell phone...remember most cell phones have crappy camera's that can't take a good picture of anything remotely far away...sometimes even when the object is rather close with most phones it still has a tendency to pixelate quite a bit...depends on the quality of the camera though...
interesting story though...don't know if it's a viable source or not but interesting none the less

However, that's not ruling out the possibility that the Mothman has some supernatural powers that stop the camera from functioning. I'm not saying that's what happened, because personally I've never seen any good evidence for the Mothman being real, but if he was, it would make sense he could disable a camera if he has the powers that are claimed.
Where's the meat here though? Anyone can just claim "I saw a Mothman" anytime something bad happens. I don't really know what that brings to the table, although I guess it would be good to keep on record.
