The Jersey Devil

This is the description an eyewitness gave of what they believe was the Jersey Devil.

"It was about three-and-a-half feet high, with a head like a collie dog and a face like a horse. It had a long neck, wings about two feet long, and its back legs were like those of a crane, and it had horse's hooves. It walked on its back legs and held up two short front legs with paws on them."

This creature is believed, by some, to haunt the Pine Barrens of Southern New Jersey. This legendary creature dates back to 1735. To some, this is just a mythical creature and to others a real monster.

To me the story of the Jersey Devil is just that...a story. I do believe that a number of the people did see something out there. However, I do not think that it has anything to do with the 1735 tale.
