THE MERTZTOWN BATMAN
A case from the archives now, of particular interest to those studying the Mothman phenomenon. A father and son parked near Mertztown (PA) beheld one evening a bizarre entity flying towards them. Its skin was like that of a bat, of gray coloration, and it had no feathers. It wasn't just large, it was huge. Its motion was actually gliding rather than flying. Its head was the size of a human's, while its wingspan was 25'-30'. Its tail stuck out at the back, resembling a rat's. The volant giant disappeared into the nearby woods. This sighting occurred in 2012.
