Late last November, the popular blog, Who Forted?, among others, broke a quite interesting story that has ties to here in the Mountain State. It seems that even after the 1966-67 flap of Mothman sightings in Point Pleasant ended, the man-beast with the glowing eyes, wings, and muscular legs, has once again returned to terrorize citizens.
And while Mothman has been sighted many times over the intervening years, it seems that is target in November, 2012 was a woman named Sharon Davis. Although none of the articles available online states where Davis is from, what IS known is that she called into the Ground Zero radio show out of Portland, Oregon and sought advice from host Clyde Lewis concerning a beastly creature that seemed to be stalking her. Clyde suggested that she attempt to take a photograph of this creature, which is seen below.
"The being is boldly and directly looking at me and is not intimidated by
me in the least. It was there all night, it orginally was standing at
the back bumper of my car and I did take several pictures which shows
that it did not stay stationary but did move to the mid section of the
car and half in half out."
Obviously, due to the poor quality of the photo combined with the way it was taken and the subject matter, this photo has been ridiculed by many, both in the paranormal community and out. Personally, I'd like to play Devil's Advocate for a minute...
Let's assume that this is some type of paranormal entity. In the 1960s, one of the original Mothman witnesses in Pt. Pleasant did say that Mothman seemed to "stalk" her---she would often see him standing outside of her home. Others reported similar behavior. Therefore, it isn't totally off-behavior for this being (if it IS Mothman) to just simply be hanging out. And, as we've seen over the past 40+ years, Mothman has allegedly been seen outside the tri-state area, lol.
However, one thing really stands out at me. ALL Mothman witnesses report the being to have red, glowing eyes. Even with a cheap cell phone camera, the eyes (and uh, WINGS) should be visible, right?
What do you think? Is it Mothman...or perhaps some other paranormal entity? Is it a hoax, or a mis-identification of a real, live stalker?
