Sometimes cryptozoology takes us into areas where even the cryptozoologist's imagination is strained. This is one such area.
In the early part of the 20th Century (remember it?-not so long ago) two ladies went out with a view to getting water from the pump. (In those days, not everyone had running water). They heard noises coming from a grapevine and felt they came from a human voice cursing them. One of them summoned her husband, who came out, gun in hand. Then the three of them saw an astonishing animal on a fence - a bobcat-like creature with a human head. The husband took a shot, but the creature went into the nearby woods. This happened at Short Hill Mountain, Loudoun County, Virginia.
Round Hill was a nearby place which boasted a supposedly haunted house and, three years later, a young man was dared to spend the night there. He didn't stay there all night for what should he see in the house but a creature like a bobcat with a human head. He fled and the creature pursued him. He was headed towards Hillsboro and at length stopped for breath only to behold his pursuer on a fence in front of him. He was off again and that was the last he saw of the creature.
I will not presume to see what those witnesses saw. My only guess is that it was a bobcat with a disfigured face. You don't really get bobcats with human heads - or do you?
