Mothman in Wisconsin? State fair demon witness describes the terrifying encounter with a 7-foot tall winged being at the Wisconsin State Fair in Milwaukee following a performance by the Christian rock band Skillet on August 7, 2021, according to a report posted on the UFO Clearinghouse blog.
Two state fair workers were cleaning up trash by the main stage area after the concert when one of them spotted the creature and shouted, “What the fuck is that?”
“This thing looked like a literal demon from the depths of hell”
“I looked up and there about 30 feet in front of us, toward the parking lot was what looked like a very tall being but it wasn’t like any person I have ever seen before,” the witness who reported the incident said. “It was about 7 feet tall and thin but still looked very solid, it was coal black and had two glowing yellow eyes and it had wings! Literal fucking wings that must have stretched out 12 feet from tip to tip coming out of it’s back. This thing looked like a literal demon from the depths of hell and it appeared to be staring directly at the stage where there were still people breaking down equipment from the earlier concert.”
The entity took a few unsteady steps toward the stage, then turned its head to look directly at the two onlookers.
“The air felt like it was drained straight out of my lungs and I felt an overwhelming sense of terror, not fear but absolute terror, like my life was going to end right then and there and this thing was going to snatch my soul and drag it down to hell,” the witness said.
“It then flapped its wings rapidly a couple of times almost like it was stretching them out and took off into the air and was gone. It was swallowed up by the night and was done in a matter of a few milliseconds.”
Mothman in Wisconsin
The creature known as Mothman originated around Point Pleasant, WV with multiple sightings between 1966-67. The encounters, along with UFO sightings and other strange phenomena, seemingly culminated in the collapse of the Silver Bridge in 1967 that plunged cars into the dark, icy waters of the Ohio River and killed 46 people.
This earned Mothman the reputation as a harbinger of doom.
Reports of a “Black Bird of Chernobyl” witnessed before the catastrophic explosion of the Chernobyl nuclear power plant in Ukraine seem to support the idea that the entity arrives prior to an impending disaster, as either a warning, or the cause of, the coming tragedy.
Eyewitnesses describe Mothman as standing 6-10 feet tall, covered in fur or leathery skin, with bat-like wings spanning 10 feet or more. The eyes are typically red, but yellow, orange, and even green eyes have been reported.
Since 2011 there have been numerous sightings of a large, winged humanoid creature (or creatures?) in areas near the Lake Michigan shoreline. The Chicago Mothman, as it has been dubbed, has mostly been seen in areas around Chicago, though there have been reports of sightings further north in Wisconsin.
This may be the first sighting of such a creature in Milwaukee.

“I’m confident that what I saw was real and it stuck in my head all night long,” the witness said. “My partner looked like he had seen the devil himself, he said it had scared him and he was going to stick toward the well lit areas for the rest of the night.”
