CFZ-CANADA: It's a Bird, It's a Plane...

CFZ-CANADA: It's a Bird, It's a Plane...

This weekend (September 14, 2012) is the 10th anniversary of the Mothman Festival in Point Pleasant, West Virginia. I am pleased to be part of the speaker lineup again this year, and if you are able I highly recommend attending this free fest. Mothman’s fame may be in West Virginia, but Canada certainly is part of this creature’s world itinerary. Sightings occur worldwide, and have for a very long time.

If you are not familiar with this cryptid, here are some basics. First and foremost, know that not everyone considers Mothman a cryptid. Some believe he is thoroughly paranormal, some believe he is alien, and skeptics have both pooh-poohed the sightings and attributed them to barn owls or sand hill cranes. Most witness descriptions place him at 4 to 6 feet and human shaped, having a shiny dark grey or black skin, batlike wings, and large glowing red eyes. He is able to fly without flapping his wings, take off and land vertically, and has sharp fingernails.
I like that: "...know that not everyone considers Mothman a cryptid." On an intuitive level I believe Mothman is nothing close to a cryptid; meaning unknown animal. It is something paranormal/supernatural indeed.
