Illustration of the Owl Man.
|Year First Seen||1976|
It's said that the Owlman makes loud screeching and hissing sounds. The Owlman of Mawnan is often compared with West Virginia's Mothman in cryptozoology because eyewitness accounts dictate similar qualities. They're both described as winged, birdlike humanoids about 4-7 feet tall with a wingspan of about 10 feet. According to cryptozoologists, they both have large, red, glowing eyes and live in wooded areas near rural towns.
Connections with Mothman
Owlman and Mothman are also both associated with paranormal and UFO activity. During the mid-1970s the area surrounding Mawnan Smith on the southern coast of Cornwall had been the site of UFO sightings, as well as reports of local domestic and wild animals acting strangely (reports of dog attacks had trebled and there were claims of people being held 'hostage' by feral cats). Then, at the beginning of 1976, the first reports of 'Owlman' started.
