Thirty-Five Years of (T)error: Revisiting the Dover Demon

Via Cryptomundo:

Blogger Tony Morrill has written a comprehensive overview of the Massachusetts cryptid known only as the “Dover Demon”. The first sighting of the pallid, melon-shaped humanoid creature took place in 1977, and although there haven’t been any recent reported sightings, it remains a popular topic of debate – at least among some people:

“It was not a dog or a cat. It had no tail. It had an egg-shaped head. It looked like a baby’s body with long arms and legs. It had a big head about the same size as the body, it was sort of melon shaped. The color of it was… the color of people in the Sunday comics.”

I can’t help but to notice that the description sounds very similar to the “Grey aliens” that UFO abductees describe from time to time. That being said, some people think that it might have been a young moose.

      Snout, you’re going to love tomorrow’s episode of the DisinfoCast. Nick Redfern and I spoke at great length about “ultraterrestrials” and tulpas.

    We are all alienated from our environment to different degrees. 5 miles into the woods is a different world.

    Umm freetown state forest in mass is full of big foot sightings,satanic cults, aliens, native american ghosts and curses and trolls yes trolls. Google “Bridgewater triangle” its one of the areas with the most supernatural lure in the country and dover is not far from it. I even heard of cases of people seeing a flying dinosaur. I think its a magnetic anomaly in the area that makes people hallucinate ever so slightly, a ley line, but who knows.
