The Ohio Grassman, like its name suggests, is found in the farming fields of Ohio. Is it a Sasquatch, Neanderthal, or giant Gorilla? I think it cover all three theories, smaller than a Sasquatch (6ft to 7ft tall), has facial features of a Gorilla and social norms of a Neanderthal. It is thought that they live in small communities of 5 to 6 individuals including their young. The Grassman also have a social hierarchy, much like a pack of wolves, with an alpha male as the leader. The alpha male is extremely aggressive and it is thought that several human deaths were caused by the alpha male Grassman.
It is widely understood to be a herbivore, although it can be an omnivore, the creature is often spotted near cornfields. It is not quite understood if the Grassman is feeding on the corn or stalking deer that come to the corn fields to feed.
From the Pine Barons of Southern New Jersey is the legend of the Jersey Devil. Was it a mistake? A boo boo? There are several thoughts about origin the Jersey Devil, but the description is universal…candid like upper torso and head, bat like wings and deer like lower body with hooves. It stands under 6ft with a wingspan in flight of about 10ft.
Is it a harbinger of death or tragedy? Much like the Mothman, it is spotted shortly before or after tragic events. Several large deadly fires have occurred in the Pine Barons of New Jersey and the Jersey Devil has been spotted a short time before these events. Is it directly responsible for the tragedies? It is up for debate but caution should be used when the Jersey Devil is spotted.
One theory about the origin of the Jersey Devil is the mother practiced witchcraft in the 17th century. She “immaculately” conceived a child, the town folk found out and hunted down the mother…much like the Salem witch trials in New England. Before she was burned at a stake, she put a curse on the area and child…making the Jersey Devil.
