This chicken-stealing creature was shot by a farmer in Greenwich (NJ), but no one could then identify it. It was about the size of an airedale terrier. Its fur was black and compared with astrakhan. Its forelegs were higher than its back legs, which were in a crouched position. Its hind feet were webbed and there was nothing canine about its jaws. It had been seen making its wat by hopping. I have no date for this incident.
