WEST VIRGINIA, US: The seldom appearance of mythical red-eyed creature continuous to haunt denizens of West Virginia and nightmare has struck back once again.
Previous sightings have described it as a “large flying man with 10-foot wings” and a “large bird with red eyes”.
According to the Daily Mirror, one man is convinced he has proved once and for all the creature is real.
Recently some pictures were captured showing some sort of animal appears to have wings with pointed tips and long legs, bent at an awkward angle.
The unnamed man told local news service WCHSTV he saw some creature jump from tree to tree as he was driving on a road below so decided to pull over and take some pictures.
He was adamant the pictures – which were taken on Sunday evening (November 20) – had not been doctored with.
Carolin Harris told the station: “I definitely know the Mothman is real.
“First responders and the sheriff’s department that I talked to definitely made a believer out of me.”
The Mothman was reportedly sighted in the area by witnesses between November and December 1966, before author John Keel popularised it in his 1975 book “The Mothman Prophecies.” The creature’s sightings led to a Hollywood thriller flick starring Richard Gere on the same subject in 2002.
