Jersey Devil
« on: December 21, 2009, 11:53:20 AM »



  The above image is of the Demon FurFur.  While I know Demons are not apart of Cryptozoology, I could not help but notice the similarity of this demon and that of the Jersey Devils Appearance.  Coinsidence?  Anyone else think this may be a subject worthy of discussion?  Below are a few versions of teh Jersey Devil also.

  A mix up that many before you have also made, worry not about it.

Lady, there are actually earlier accounts of a creature similar to the Jersey Devil in Native American lore of the area. !735 was the beginning of the "Leed's Devil" story which some people believe is the origin of the Jersey Devil. Personally, I think the Devil has been around a lot longer & the Leed's story started from a deformed child being born to a woman who just happened to have already had 12 children & the 13th unlucky one was deformed which might lead people to call it a "demon" or "devil" child. Eventually Native Lore blended with Colonial superstition & the story we all know came to be. Just my thoughts.

Saw that in the wiki entry. But there also was the assumption that it was a single individual, which would give it a lifespan longer than most.

The real problem with sightings like these, are the scientific communities unwillingness to investigate the incident with an open mind.  :x
Why has it inevitably have to be a bear - or in this case alternately a human or a crane? Why don't begin with the given facts and draw conclusions from them?

  If the door to accepting things such as the Jersey Devil is opened than the fragile "Reality " that mankind had created will shatter into quite a few pieces.  No one is too willing to do such a thing.

Muerte, great find!  That was an awesome correlation with the demon Fur Fur, I bet they are one and the same.  Or at least the devil stories based on Fur Fur.  Its called a devil, and really looks the same:  A deer (or jackelope) with batwings!

If for whatever reason that entity was invoked a long time ago and had a cult following- whether they called it Fur Fur, or if the Native Americans had a different name for it, it may still roam around.  I am more inclined to thinking its a supernatural creature more so than a cryptid.  It might not be a demon at all, but just be some kind of supernatural being or nature spirit (like fairies and trolls) that feels like it belongs to that area.  Some kind of guardian or something.

I don't know, as soon as I saw your pictures, the imagination started turning  :roll:  But that was very astute of you, I wonder if anyone else who has investigated the sightings knows about Fur Fur?

I have read a book and the jersey devil a long time ago but I don't recongnise a "Fur Fur" and I looked it up and all I got was stuffed animals, furry porn, and boots.
I saw and was silent,
I saw and thought,
and heard the speech of Odin
I heard about what lay in the runes,
and there was much council given.
At the hall of Har, In the hall of Har;
Such was the speech I heard.

  Next time try googling it this way.

  FurFur (it is one word) and Demon.  Who knows, you may come up with a link like this one.

  Things to remember about research.  Dedication, Perseverance, and the ability t think outside of the box.
