Strange tales from the goldmine….

By Thumper - 3 July 2007 15

Now, I’m not one to deride people’s eye witness accounts of strange happening and things that go bump at night. However, whilst doing a little research into a subject I came across this little gem.

In a nutshell, the hero of our story and some mates decided to drive to the coast, a fairly normal thing for a Canberran to do. At some place unspecified, but sounding somewhat like either the Clyde or Brown Mountain, they allegedly encountered something very strange.

Our hero continues, ‘The creature was definitely human looking although it wore strange clothes. It was dressed in a green robe of some kind with little pieces of gold on it, and it was either wearing a head crest or it had a row of spikes running from it’s forehead to the top of it’s neck.’

Needless to say our guys were terrified and buggered off really quickly, something I think I would do in this situation. However, the creature hadn’t given up and followed them, as is usual for these sorts of stories.

Interestingly our intrepid reporter of the supernatural states at the end of his article that ‘we have never taken the same pass again.’

I guess it must be a bloody long drive for him to now get to the coast. Macquarie pass anyone? Kangaroo valley perhaps?

So which one of you pranksters dressed up like a giant frog and scared the willies out of our man?

What’s Your opinion?

Ahh mothman.. I wonder if wesley willis ever did a song about Mothman.. if so it would probably go something like this

Mothman Caught me on his property
He took to me with a rubber hose
I pistol whipped his behind
Mothman is a redneck jerk

Mothman Kicked my Ass. Mothman Kicked My Ass. Mothman Kicked my Ass. Mothman Kicked my Ass.
Mothman Kicked my Ass. Mothman Kicked My Ass. Mothman Kicked my Ass. Mothman Kicked my Ass.

I want more details. Did it follow them by flapping its cloak and flying through the air, or in a Barina?
