The Mothman legend is as follows:
November 15, 1966
Point Pleasant, WV
While driving through an abandoned munitions dump 'locally known as the tnt area' Linda Scarberry, her husband Roger and another couple spotted a pair of glowing red eyes two inches wide and six inches apart attached to something that was "shaped like a man, but bigger...maybe six or seven feet tall, and it had big wings folded against it's back." Roger accelerated their vehicle trying to escape from the creature. Much to the couples' horror Mothman gave chase, squeeking audibly as it reached speeds over 100mph. The flying monster ended pursuit only as the car neared town.
