CRYPTID HUNTER MONTHLY
It's time to "spring" into a new season of cryptid hunting. Rain or shine, our vigilant readers continue to report new sightings and insights. For this month's special edition newsletter, we're delighted to share a few reader submissions that caught our eye.
Ode to Mothman
From Petra, Kanawha County
"Red eyes, bright as rubies
Or a freshly risen mosquito bite
I saw her outside my bedroom door
How did she get in? Who only knows
Whence Came the Putrid Mist?
From Yong, Greenbrier County
"We haven't given enough thought to the Flatwoods Monster's scent. Most pass it off as a by-product of crash-landing through 5 layers of atmosphere, but it seems to me that the Monster would have fully prepared its exoskeleton for such trials. What if the scent originated from illegal activities on a nearby farm? What if the scent was artificially applied in a misguided attempt to appeal to us? What if the stress of the journey caused the Monster to expel sulfuric flatus?"
A Sheepish Confession
From Michael, Jefferson County
"I was invited on a camping trip by this really pretty girl in my class, and the truth is, I only said yes because a Sheepsquatch was sighted near Berkeley Springs and I really want to track it down. Does that make me a bad person? I hope it doesn't... I like Cindy, but she's no Sheepsquatch."
We understand, Michael. We understand.
