In the 19th Century, a couple of strange creatures were reported from Bracken County (Kentucky). In 1866 there was a report of a creature variously compared with an elephant, horse or other creature. It had large paws, claws, cloven hooves, horns and a dart-shaped end to its tail.
In 1868 another strange creature was reported in the county. It was said to be 6 feet tall, with hair and tail composed of flame, resembling a man above the waist and a horse below, exuding fiery breath.
Make of these reports what you will.
