An article from today’s Bucks County Courier Times mentions a strange animal seen Bucks County, PA.
They realize they will be pegged as nutty, and they insist they do not believe in things that go bump in the night. Yet, several readers claim to have spotted a weird creature roaming the Yardley/Lower Makefield area. I have nicknamed it the “Yardley Yeti.”
“Within the past year, I also have seen this "thing,’ ” a woman wrote. “Once, in my backyard at night [in Yardley.] And once while driving down Sutphin Pines. One was a tan color and the other was a grey color. The tail was long and smooth-haired, like the body hair.
“My friends and family looked at me like I had two heads when I was describing it to them. My Mom even said I must have been "hallucinating."
Others describe the animal as a fox/cougar/jackal mix. One said it had a distinctive longish, rat-like tail. Another saw “long fangs.” Another said it appeared to be wolf-like, with an oddly shaped snout.
The article can be read in its entirety at the above link. The article even mentions the Maine Mutant.
