Point Pleasant, WVa - The mystery of what became of the legendary Mothman creature may be close to being solved in West Virginia. Forensics specialists have been called in to study what appear to be giant furry balls found near the site of a bridge that collapsed decades ago.

The Silver Bridge, which spanned the Ohio River between the Cities of Point Pleasant, WVa and Gallipolis, Ohio, was the site of numerous sightings of a strange creature that looked like a giant moth with legs and which appeared only between the years of 1966 and 1967. Once the bridge collapsed in December 1967, no further sightings of the Mothman were recorded, leaving locals to believe that the Mothman was trying to warn the residents of the town of the impending collapse.

Recent heavy rains in the area had washed away the ground around what was left of the collapsed bridge leaving exposed two large spherical shapes protruding from the mud. Teenagers in the area on the way to their favorite fishing spot noticed the shapes and began digging them out of the ground. "They looked like two coconuts that you get in the grocery store," said Dwight Hingle, one of the teenagers. "But they were connected to each other. I'm guessing they were each about ten inches in diameter and covered in like coarse hair. If I knew then what I know now, I wouldn't have touched them," he said visibly disgusted.

"Yeah," said his friend Danny Switzer. "We were throwing them back and forth at each other. We didn't know they were some creature's balls." Then he added, "This isn't going to be in the newspapers is it? I don't want our friends thinking we like to play with 'nads man."

Scientists have been out to the site trying to recover additional evidence that will solve the mystery once and for all surrounding the Mothman, but as of the writing of this report, no other body parts have been found. Some people who have believed all along in the Mothman believe a possible explanation as to why only his balls were found is that there may be a Chupacabra in the area. Said one local man who fancies himself an expert in cryptozoology, "Chupacabras aren't big organ eaters. They mainly just go for flesh."
