The “Jersey Devil” is photographed in Philadelphia, United States
* A Pennsylvania construction worker says he photographed an unknown creature he believes “had the exact markings” of the Jersey Devil.
* “He was coming back from Philly. I don’t really remember the exact part he was in,” he explains. “My friend and I were in the car and we saw what appeared to be a massive buzzard in a tree, it was getting dark so we couldn’t quite make out the features.
There are numerous legends about formidable and fearsome creatures that once roamed our world.
Many of these legends about these monsters often sound scary and we prefer to think that these creatures only exist in folklore and nowhere else.
But many people have had encounters with these strange beings and some even had photographic evidence to support the authenticity of their story.
Like the Jersey Devil captured in a photograph recently.
A Pennsylvania construction worker says he photographed an unknown creature he believes “had the exact features” of the Jersey Devil.
“He was coming back from Philly. I don’t really remember the exact part he was in,” he explains. “My friend and I were in the car and saw what appeared to be a massive vulture in a tree, it was getting dark so we couldn’t quite make out the features. I told him to get his phone for a photo.”
There are several legends about its origin.
The first dates of the legend of him date back to the native Indians. The tribes called the area around the Pine Barrens “Popuessing”, which means “place of the dragon”.
Swedish explorers later named the region “Drake Kill”, which is the Swedish word for dragon, and “kill” meaning channel or arm of the sea (river, stream, etc.).
But the best-known legend is that in 1735 a lady named Leeds, who had 12 children, discovered that she was pregnant with her 13th child and said, “Let this be cursed!” Then the baby would have been born with the horse’s head, the bat’s wings and the kangaroo’s paws, she would have killed her parents and then fled to the Barrens pine forest.
Since then, very occasionally, the photographed Jersey Devil has been seen in the dark of the woods and in some other places, predicting disasters in the places where it has been seen.
