Mothman arrived in Point Pleasant in November 1966 in scaring couples in parked cars and eating farmers' dogs. He was described as seven feet tall with a barrel chest and a piercing shriek. His most memorable features were his ten-foot batlike wings and his huge, red, glowing eyes. And unlike the Flatwoods monster, Mothman didn't spook and run. He hung around for over a year, building an impressive roster of over 100 fear-struck locals who claimed to have encountered him.

I dont know him personally ..I just happened to end up here in Point Pleasant and have been here nearly 10 years.. I have heard stories of him from others and of course if you do put mothman in the search engines you will get a treasury of history of the mothman;)+

I've never heard of Mothman. But I'm a bit younger than the 1966 generation. ;-)
