About

The Jersey Devil is a cryptid that can allegedly be found in the Pine Barrens, a heavily forested area in southern New Jersey. Though there are many accounts of what the Devil looks like, the most common description includes bat-like wings, hooves and the head of a goat. The Devil is known for eating livestock and its tales were used to scare children away from the unexplored forest, similar to The Bogeyman.

Origin

A local legend[1] states that a pregnant woman named Mrs. Leeds had cursed her child when she went into labor, yelling “let this child be a devil.” Though the baby boy looked normal after he was delivered, he slowly began to mutate in to a creature that resembled a horse with bat-like wings, shrieking before it flew through the roof of their cabin.
