I had to look up what it was. The meteor//owl theory seems pretty plausible to me.

apparently this is what the flatwoods monster looks like by eye witness accounts, depicted by the history channel program monster quest.

I have attached the pic in the reply

If not imagined, I'd say it resembles the Ace of Spades in a skirt...

The barn owl explanation makes perfect sense. So yeah, an owl.

A bunch of kids and their mom, fueled by the cold war era space stories, see and owl, and lose their ****.

the results of on over active imagination and an adreneline rush brought on by being scared... by those that supposedly saw the creature/monster.. im sure they believe they saw what they did.. but i question the accuracy of the eyewitness accounts based on the former statement

Can't really say for certain.  There were many eyewitnesses so I take it more seriously than cases with a single witness.  It apparently didn't like Earth, because it hasn't been seen since. So I would classify it as unknown strangeness, like Mothman, the Dover Demon, etc.

Some guy wrote a book but his website is hard to read. (It needs a web designer): http://www.flatwoods...dsmonster.com  

I do like the action figures a toymaker came up with. (Monster pictured with friend Mothman).

  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Posted 20 January 2013 - 09:17 PM

Generally, I am with the Owl theory. And like Mothman, there was not an extended period of time over which the thing was seen. So the number of reports is low and the number of eyewitnesses few.

Personnally to me it has always looked like a robot. If there were any proof of ETs, I'd go with ET Robot first thing.

The thing I've always found interesting about the whole Mothman thing was no one mentioned it, reported it or said anything about it until after that bridge collapsed in West Virginia. Then suddenly we had all this stuff come out like a good pooh after taking a laxative.

As I stated before,  I spent twenty years living within an hour of Point Pleasant and never heard one conversation about the Mothman, but I did hear conversations about the bridge collapse. Multiple deaths in your area tend to trump myth unless you're under a certain age, imo.

In fact, my West Virginian husband just reminded me we used to fish and camp along the river there with friends when we were dating.
No mothman visit, not once, And not one story of it told around the campfire with a bunch of "locals", either.

The Flatwoods Monster to me sounds exactly like something Lovecraft would've come up with.

in fact, kind of reminds me of these buggers... Great Race of Yith.... A little.....

Perhaps, but they were native to Australia.

"We see things only as we are constructed to see them, and can gain no idea of their absolute nature. With five feeble senses we pretend to comprehend the boundlessly complex cosmos, yet other beings with wider, stronger, or different range of senses might not only see very differently the things we see, but might see and study whole worlds of matter, energy, and life which lie close at hand yet can never be detected with the senses we have." - H.P. Lovecraft, "From Beyond" Published 1934
