Deer hunters in Mason County, West Virginia, might want to keep an eye out for this creature in the woods, and it’s not a whitetail.
The Point Pleasant Mothman, a local legend around town that has gained worldwide fame over the years, might have made another appearance this past weekend. According to WCHS News, a man was driving down State Route 2 when he noticed something big jump from tree to tree. He pulled over, got out and began snapping photos.
The pictures show what appears to be a winged man with long legs bent at an awkward angle, flying across the sky. Believe it or not, locals aren’t surprised by the photos. In fact, a lot of people believe the Mothman is real! The Mothman was first reported by witnesses in Point Pleasant way back in 1966. The myth took off and even inspired a book called “The Mothman Prophecies.”
