So, my two boys have been obsessed with this tale for a couple of years now. They think it's so cool to have this legend so close to the house. So, I promised them some time ago I'd take them to Point Pleasant and let them see the area for themselves. :roll: Anyways, it's only about a half-hour from here so I ran them down last Saturday and I thought I'd post some pics of our great time.

When I'm driving to work through a heavily wooded area in the wee hours of the morning, thoughts
of the mothman flying next to my car scare the bejesus out of me.

But as I creep closer and closer to Youngstown, thoughts of the mothman fade away and new
thoughts of the ghetto (no offense to ghetto scott) take over. Never, ever stop for coffee
at the Speedway across from the TallyHotel that early in the morning. Bad things happen.

Yeah, you get out early in the morning, while it's still dark, the Mothman's been out all night terrorizing folks, he's good and liquored up, and he usually stops at that Speedway for some munchies on his way back to his lair! :D

No offense taken Jig.

..we dont have mothmans in San Antonio...we have La Chusas. Maybe they are distant cousins. Me and my homie saw her one night...we were well liquored up and might have smoked a few cigs that resembled joints but i swear i saw her! :shock:

La Chusa is part of the Hispanic folklore. It was a winged female figure resembling an owl that takes people's souls away when they're close to dying. If you whistle, and La Chusa returns the call, according to the myth death is near. You would know she was near by the beating of her wings on one side of the house.
It is said that most of these La Chusa (lechusa) are witches with the head of a woman and the body of an owl with huge wings. In some parts of Mexico it is said they capture these birds with green vines and in the morning they transform back into women only to be burned at the stake. This is said only to happen in small remote towns.
Most of the legends involved with the La Chusa revolve around revenge, where the curse is said to be cast upon a person, usually by a bruja or black magic witch whom usually seeks out the damned souls whom have done very wrong by someone.
It is said that once the curse is placed upon your soul, the only way to remove the curse is by capturing the creature while in human form and burning them alive.

"...Unlike conventional predators, the chupacabra is said to drain all of the animal's blood (and sometimes organs) through a single hole or two holes.[20] ..".

Gotta respect a creature like that. Draining all of the animal's organs through a single or two holes. Sounds like a girl I used to date :shock:

The Chupacabra Caught?
by Mike Krumboltz

It really does exist! Maybe! The famed chupacabra has apparently been found, and it's a Texan.

Or at least it was. The beast is now dead, but news of its capture near Blanco, Texas, inspired Bigfoot-sized searches. Lookups on "chupacabra" surged a whopping 571%, and related queries on "what does chupacabra mean" also roared. (For the record, its rough translation is "goat sucker.") The find also inspired renewed interest in the equally notorious Montauk Monster.

Jerry Ayer, owner of Blanco Taxidermy School, has possession of the mythical beast's body. According to CNN, the animal was discovered by one of Ayer's students. The student had "placed poison...to catch an unidentified animal that had gotten into a family member's barn." Little did the student know the animal in question was (maybe) the chupacabra.

In the video from CNN (which is pretty gross, so beware), Ayer shows off some of the unusual features of the animal, including abnormally long legs and teeth. It looks a bit like the world's ugliest (and meanest) dog.

Of course, this is hardly the first time someone has claimed to have captured the chupacabra. In years past, brave souls have spotted it in places ranging from Russia to Maine to the Philippines. Often the animal is spotted by folks who conveniently forget to snap a photo.

Not so this time. Ayer says he plans to preserve the animal and then donate it to a local museum so it can be enjoyed by others. As the taxidermist puts it, the beast is "a tremendous conversation piece." Sort of like the Mona Lisa or a really stellar collection of garden gnomes.
