A photo is circulating online which shows what some people think shows a demon, while others are saying the Mothman or Jersey Devil.
|Demon? Mothman? Hoax?|
"PHOENIX, AZ (WCMH) - An image of a purported demon sighting on Facebook has gone viral.
"Thousands of people are wondering, 'What is that?!'
"Facebook user Richard Christianson posted the now viral photo January 1 that shows a shadowy figure, that looks a lot like out nightmares.
"The picture has now been shared more than 85,000 times and has sparked a philosophical discussion on whether people are seeing a 'demon' or an 'angel.' The post has garnered more than 10,000 comments with people giving their opinion on the figure.
"What do you see?"
The photo does look somewhat like Mothman, but since it's a cryptid photo circulating the internet its most likely a hoax. Another news site says:
"A few sleuths dug into Christianson's profile and learned he was a stagehand, so they assumed it could have been a prop used during a show."
My opinion - most likely a hoax.
