For today’s story we’ve been sent another Mothman sighting. This one from Virginia, in Floyd County. This is the first time we’ve been sent a Mothman sighting from Virginia, and us both being from Virginia we were excited to receive it!
Hi my name is Scott, this story took place around Thanksgiving of 2019. I was turkey hunting on my friend’s land in Floyd County. It was sometime around 6:00 in the morning, I came up on a group of turkeys in the woods. Keep in mind this is about a mile out in the middle of nowhere in a forest not a soul around and still a little dark. I shot at one of the turkeys and hit it, it fell down dead, the other ones took off. That’s when I heard this god awful screeching sound .I turned and looked in the direction the sound came from up in an old oak tree stood a dark brown figure. It looks like a cross between a bird and a man. It was maybe 7 feet tall, with huge wings and what looked like yellow or red glowing eyes.
About as soon as I saw it, it leapt up out of the tree and flew off headed north. Was it after the group of turkeys? I grabbed the one I shot and booked it out of there. I had no idea what that thing was but knew I just wanted to get home.
Fast forward a few months and it’s the covid lockdown. I’m watching a documentary on The Mothman on the Travel Channel. The creature they described sure does sound a lot like what I saw! We also ain’t that far from West Virginia. I also saw that The Mothman shows up when something bad is about to happen. Could this have been related to the covid outbreaks?
Thank you for taking the time to listen to my story. – Scott
Wow thank you Scott for this incredible story. As I mentioned before we are both very excited to receive a Mothman story from our home state. That is something to think about, perhaps Mothman was trying to warn us of the coming covid outbreak. We did receive another Mothman sighting from 2019, but it was in Michigan. It’s hard to say but definitely something to wonder about.
