I just wanted to post another incident that happened to me when I was much younger. I don't know how many people are from the area I grow up in, the Town of Westwood, Mass, which is right next to the town of Dover, Mass. In fact, we lived less then a mile from the Dover dump.
I don't know how many people might have heard of or remember stories that were circulating back in the 70's about a creature that was named "The Dover Demon". This creature supposedly looked something like a large dog or coyote if I remember correctly and two things that distinguished it were it huge red eyes and its ability to stand on its hind legs (like a bear). While coming home one night, both myself and my brother saw something on the road that was very disquieting to us.
We had been over to see my mother's aunts and they had been telling us stories about the wee people over in Ireland, which might have gotten our imagination stirred up. We were riding in the back of our parents' station wagon when we both thought we saw something come out of the woods and into the street. Whatever it was seemed to have large red eyes and was running like a dog or coyote might run, but whatever it was seemed abnormally fast, almost keeping up with the car.
We did seem to finally outrun whatever it was, but when we got home the two of us ran into the house and got the door closed at quick as possible. Like I said, it could have just been our overactive imagination, or it could have been some kind of wild animal (there is a lot of forest in the area), but I was just wondering if anyone had seen anything like the Dover Demon? Or remember any other incidents involving it. Thanks
