Dave Black has what he claims a one of a kind photo of the Jersey Devil. Black claims to have spotted the creature while driving home, and was able to snap a few pictures with his cell phone, but the above photo is the only one that came out clearly. It looks like a goat with wings in the photo, and the last time I checked, goats do not have wings.
"I was just driving past the golf course in Galloway on Route 9 and had to shake my head a few times when I thought I saw a llama," he wrote in his email.For the entire article, click here.
What happened next is the bizarre part.
"If that wasn't enough, then it spread out leathery wings and flew off over the golf course.
"Black said he grabbed his cell phone and snapped off a few photos, but only one came out. The creature quickly disappeared, he said, and left Black wondering.
"Either my mind is playing tricks on me or I just saw the Jersey Devil," he wrote.
After his encounter, Black said he stared at the photo for an hour trying to come up with an explanation for the image he had captured, before deciding to share it with NJ.com and its readers.
"Thought I'd send it in for you to share," he wrote. "I'm not looking for anything in return, just thought someone else could maybe explain this in a more rational way."
Before I could write about his experience and print the photo, I had to be sure he was sincere.
"Yes, I swear it's not Photoshopped or a staged thing," Black responded when I asked if he was willing to let me use his name and state that the photo he sent was not manipulated in any way. "People have said it's fake, but it's not. I'm honestly just looking for an explanation for what I saw."
