Halloween hoax or real footage of the Jersey Devil? You be the judge

Both footage and a photograph that claim to show the infamous Jersey Devil taking flight have surfaced online.

"If that wasn't enough, then it spread out leathery wings and flew off over the golf course."

Shortly after NJ.com published this photo, WeirdNJ.com published a video sent in from a reader that claims to show the devil.


"I realize this sounds crazy but I saw a red animal with a long neck and horns," a reader wrote in an email to WeirdNJ.com. "I swear on my mother’s grave, this is not a joke. I pulled over to take a video and as I started filming it got on its hind legs and flew away. I am an middle school teacher but moonlight tutoring algebra for high school students. Was driving home from an appointment on Old Port Republic Rd in Leeds Point when I took this video. So excited, had to share with someone"

Take a look at the video:

So, what say ye readers? Hoax or real thing?
