I don't know if this has already been posted if it has I apologize. There have been new sightings of the mothman,reportedly just before the collapse of the I-35W bridge. Wether or not this is true or not I dont know, but I do find it most interesting. I would like to hear everyone's opinion on it.
Here is a link with more information.

The bridge had been deemed "structurally deficient" numerous times, since 1990.  I'd say the bridge just collapsed on its own.

Ya know, I wondered if the bridge collapse was because of a mothman-like cryptid.  But then I came to my senses; it's highly unlikely. If we were to attribute every industrial mishap to a supernatural being we would never be able to take responsibility for our own actions.  I have a feeling that the original mothman did have something to do with the Silver Bridge collapse, but this is just another bridge collapse.  Nothing supernatural here, sorry.

Isn't that what mothman is known for? Sightings before disasters?

Supposedly, although I think the only disaster actually associated with him is the collapse of the bridge between West Virginia and Ohio (I think it's the Silver Bridge everyone keeps referencing).  But I think it'd be more important to prove it exists before claiming it caused the bridge to fall.

i think the mothman is trying to save people, before a major disaster it will come in contact with the people in the area thus scaring the daylights out of them ,they may then get woried if this thing appears again and leave the town, then a few weeks or so later when the disaster happens the people who were scared away are saved from death in the disasters.if that makes any sense tongue.gif

No, it was not Mothman. I highly doubt it, at least.

Course, something wrong happens so why not blame a creature which hasn't had fame in years ? hell i would do it. Why would it want to take out a bridge ? or have anything to do with one.

As far as I understand it, Mothman sightings occur prior to some disasters.

There is no direct evidence that the sightings or whatever it is that is behind them has anything at all to do with the cause of the disaster.

It's light earth-lights seen before an earthquake, or something. It's part of the experience, but shouldn't be blamed.

I think you are refering to the Black Bird of Chernobyl and the Freiburg Shrieker.  They weren't exactly mothman persay, but they were similar.
