2011 'Mothman' Encounter Near Bradshaw, WV

Our team recently received the following account:

Hello - I just wanted to give a correct description of the Mothman because I've seen them close up in 2011 in McDowell County, WV close to the town of Bradshaw in my backyard perching in a tree. I observed them for some time in horror. They have elongated skulls, they're nose and mouth kind of favor that of a cat until they open it from both sides and show 4 rows of teeth. There were male and female, the male standing to be 9 ft tall and the female maybe 2 feet shorter. They were perched in the trees like gargoyles but they stood up and I got a good look at them. Their eyes and skulls were elongated and their teeth were sharpened to a point. They were covered in brown and black. Black through parts of the face, feet and hands and the wings were black with talons. They didn't have butterfly wings. They had wings like an angel with talons. The wings fastened on the back and at the wrist. The movie 'Jeepers Creepers' was close, except for the face. They took flight and the wind beneath them made the ground seem to shake. I noticed while observing these creatures for close to an hour that they seemed to telecommunicate and there was a sound coming from them that sounded like an old locomotive screeching of wheels and they clacked their teeth at each other and then took flight. Very frightening creatures

If I had to guess I'd say they've been here with us all along, as I feel these creatures live under the ground and hunt at night. The red eyes glow when the light hits them. I felt I'd just see fallen angels. Not the pretty ones you see in pictures. God is the master of the skies. I'm sure he has many creations men haven't discovered. I pay more attention to my surroundings, thanks to my experience and I always check the trees. I am in my right mind and wouldn't tell a lie to doom my soul. I eyewitnessed these events. JL
