LEGEND OF THE OWLMAN: The Owlman of Mawnan (or "Death Raptor") was first reported in the rural village in Cornwall, England in 1976. The creature was described by two young girls as a giant, human-sized owl. Over the next 30 years, more reports of the demonic beast were recorded. The sightings caused a collective madness in the community. Owlman is described as half-man/half-owl, 4-5 feet tall with gray feathers and large clawed feet. It's said that the Owlman makes loud screeching and hissing sounds.

SIMILARITIES WITH MOTHMAN: 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. Owlman and Mothman are also both associated with paranormal and UFO activity.
