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