10-FOOT-TALL, RED-EYED 'MOTHMAN' Encountered in North Saanich, BC

A North Saanich, BC man was sitting in his truck that was parked in his driveway. He sees something standing nearby. The winged humanoid rose up, standing 10 feet and height.

I received the following account:

"Hi. I had an encounter with what I now believe to be Mothman.

In January 2022, in North Saanich, British Columbia, I was sitting in my truck on my driveway having a cigarette and listening to music. It was late so it was dark out with minimal moonlight. It has always been my routine to walk out to my truck in the evening, have a beer, and some smokes, and play music. Recently for a week or so before the encounter, I had suddenly become very afraid of the dark, like something was out there watching me. I jogged to the safety of my truck that day. 

So I was sitting there still feeling afraid and I looked out the window, to see something that looked like a deer on the driveway, then it turned to look right at me and I saw two large glowing red eyes. It was obviously crouching at first because when it stood up and was around 10 feet tall, winged, and humanoid with the appearance of small horns or something on its head. It stared right at me and I felt paralyzed, overwhelming fear came over me and I couldn’t look away from its eyes. We stared at each other for about 5 minutes. It barely moved but it started shuffling at the end and I quickly looked away to find the lock on my door. I looked back and it had completely vanished. Obviously must have flown off while I was distracted, I looked everywhere but up. 

The feeling of fear at night lasted for another week or two, then it was gone and everything seemed normal again.

I had no idea what this thing might be. I only recently heard of descriptions of the Mothmen so I figured I’d contact you." K

DOPPELGÄNGERS: SHOULD WE FEAR THEM? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Doppelgänger

Have you ever met someone who looked just like you? Perhaps you’ve walked up to a person you thought you knew only to find they were a stranger. If so, you may have met a real-life doppelgänger.

What is a doppelgänger? The word comes from German meaning “double goer.” Today, it’s often used to describe two strangers who look so much alike they could be twins. Seeing a doppelgänger can be startling. That’s true whether it’s a person who looks just like you or someone who could be your friend’s twin. It’s no wonder, then, that doppelgängers are also common in frightening stories.

Many times, a doppelgänger is the double of another character. They are like the character in many ways, most often in looks. However, the things that make them different are more important. The doppelgänger often differs from the main character in the values they hold. This results in them making choices that lead them down a different path. For example, “The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde” by Robert Louis Stevenson. In this story, both characters share the same body. However, they are opposites, with Dr. Jekyll representing good and Mr. Hyde evil.

There is also a historical attribute to this phenomenon. President Abraham Lincoln supposedly saw his doppelgänger when he saw two faces in the mirror on the night of his first election in 1860. The second face was pale and sickly, which his wife, Mary, interpreted as a sign of death or sickness during his second term. Only a few months after his second election, Lincoln was assassinated by John Wilkes Booth.

So, what do you think a doppelgänger represents? Listen to these accounts and form your opinion.
