It is said that a woman, “Mrs. Leeds”, had too many children. And when the thirteenth one was born, she cursed him. Instantly, the infant turned into a vicious monster, attacking everyone in the room. The beast is said to have the head of a goat or horse, large leathery wings, hooves, and stands on two legs. It’s a gawky- looking beast with it’s stretched-out body and forked tail. Talk about a face that only a mother could love … well, she didn’t think too much of it either.
The thing is said to let out a blood-curdling scream and is a skilled hunter, flying through the night skies. While mostly associated with New Jersey and sometimes referred to as a Jersey Devil, this monster has also been sighted in several other states.
