A true Hell Hound and Demon with "large front limbs which would be powerful enough to tear human flesh."
And it was seen just yards from school children who could have been attacked!
Oh did I forget to say what it turned out to be? Silly me. Here's that story.
Of course there are other Beasts of Dartmoor out there. Here's another one that was caught earlier. Please God, let's not let them start breeding!
We are going to catch them all! The Beast of Bodmin is next, and after that we are going after the giant lion-eating chimps of the magic forest.
I always like the descriptions like this one that tell us of the enormous footprints of giant mystery cats with enormous claws. Please tell us more! How big were the claws on that foot print again?
And of course we have them over here too. Chilling!

"A man or a woman's?"
Dr. Moritmer looked strangely at us for an instant, and his voice sank almost to a whisper as he answered: "Mr. Holmes, they were the footprints of a gigantic hound."
