There’s A Strange Phenomenon In West Virginia And It’s Too Weird For Words

Among the many strange phenomena that have come out of West Virginia, the Flatwoods Monster is by far the weirdest. But like any strange sighting or incident, people have a tendency to celebrate it. That is why anyone who enters Flatwoods without knowledge of their local boogeyman might be a bit amused. But amusement was not the prevailing emotion when the Flatwoods Monster appeared to local residents one night in 1952.

Like other cryptids in popular folklore, such as the Mothman or Bigfoot, The Flatwoods Monster has found a place in popular culture, leaving people to ponder the existence of unexplainable creatures in an otherwise explainable world.
