Photographs Taken of Possible Mothman in The Gasp Menagerie

The Gasp Menagerie

The Mothman is my favorite cryptid.  After a lifetime of studying cryptozoology, the mythology and lore surrounding Mothman just captures me like no other.  Sasquatch is fascinating, Nessie was an obsession for years, but Mothman… an omen of death?  The bridge collapse?  Indrid Cold???  AH!  So much awesome.

It’s been awhile, but we now have some photos of what some believe to be the Mothman, near his most infamous home of Point Pleasant, WV.  The best and clearest one can be found below:

The Mothman?

These photos were posted online by a man in the area who seems to be trying to avoid publicity.  They show a winged creature of some sort that appears to have legs trailing behind it as it moves between two trees.

There are birds native to North America that trail feathers similar to this, and it’s also possible this is an owl with prey (a large frog/toad or even a snake that it’s gripping in the middle), but without further detail, it’s hard to say.

Is this the legendary Mothman, returned to his home near Point Pleasant?  Will there be a disaster, as Mothman is said to portend?  Is this just an interesting shot of local wildlife that appears to be something more than it is?

Explore The Gasp Menagerie!

Have a weird story? Potential evidence of the supernatural, or at least something hard to explain? Spot any creepy critters out there roaming the wilds? LET ME KNOW! I’d love to talk about it and possibly write it up right here in the Gasp Menagerie. You’ll get appropriate credit, of course, and everyone else will get fresh creepy (as opposed to fresh Creepy, which, trust me… nobody wants that) to enjoy. As always, I can be found at Now get out there, find some weird, and let’s get this party started.
