Fortean Quote: Mothman Heebie-Jeebies

This quote comes from a collection of scary stories for children called Heebie-Jeebies: Volume 1, by Don Roff.  It's interesting that the Mothman in this story is described as flying "like a giant bat," considering the recent rash of reports of a bat-like creature in Chicago that some are comparing to the popular monster from Point Pleasant, West Virginia.  And even during the original Mothman flap from 1966 to 1967, some witnesses described the creature's wings as similar to a bat's, so the correlation has existed to some degree since Mothman's advent.  If Batman hadn't already been taken prior to 1966, perhaps we'd be calling whatever this thing is by that name, instead.
