My friend Crystal and I were in my backyard when we were in third grade. We were convinced that the Jersey Devil had been in our hometown because of reported sightings.
After school one day, we went in my backyard and laid out crackers thinking we they would attract the Jersey Devil. I had my camera and Crystal had her sharp eye. We sat for hours on the porch step waiting to see our monster. Finally, something exciting happened. A flock of bats covered the sky almost as if they were being chased. Little did we know that they were. A few minutes later a big humongous thing flew over our heads. I was so stunned and afraid I couldn't get the picture on my camera.
The creature was about five or six feet long and had a long tail that narrowed out as it got longer. The tail alone was three feet long. It had long leathery wings about three feet long each and and had little horns. It's feet were like miniature bat/hooves combination.We were terrified and so scared we almost wet ourselves. Hey, we were only little! We tell the story today and hope it never happens again!
have a paranormal tale to tell?
