The world as a whole has no shortage of strange legends of supposed "monsters" that still roam the Earth, hidden from human eyes and only revealing themselves to people by pure chance. Of course, there's the well-known stories like Bigfoot/Sasquatch (who at this point I'm pretty sure is just naturally blurry, based on all the photos taken of him), as well as the Loch Ness Monster.
On the other hand, there's been plenty of regional monsters reported over the years that have given people plenty to worry about when walking through remote areas after dark. Who could forget legends like New Jersey's own Jersey Devil?
One of the biggest, most enduring myths of the Western world, of course, has been that of the Mothman. First reported as being sighted near Point Pleasant, West Virginia between 1966 and 1967, there were eventually several reports of a large, man-like bird with glowing red eyes. Local folklore later tied the monster to a bad omen connected with a tragic bridge collapse in 1967.
There have been books written about the subject (most famously The Mothman Prophecies, which was adapted into a 2002 movie starring Richard Gere), and the legend remains firm in the area.
However, it looks like the Mothman may have decided on a change of scenery.
