The Jersey Devil is a cryptid creature described as being hoofed and bipedal, with clawed arms and big batlike wings and a goatlike head.
It was apparently born when a witch gave birth to her 13th child, proclaiming that “this one would be the devil.” Her baby, once normal at birth, rapidly shifted into a monstrous creature that slaughtered the midwife and flew up the chimney and away into the Jersey Pine Barrens shrieking and howling.
There are people even today who will tell you that they’ve seen it, or that they’ve lost livestock to it, and more than one attempt has been made to find or capture the beast, without success.
