The Jersey Devil

Fact or fiction?Legend has it in the 1730s a woman named Leeds had 12 children and was so poor she swore if she had another,#13,it would be the devil.Well,she had that offspring.Legend said it had a horse's head,the wings of a bat,and a serpent's tail.At the age of 4,it killed it's mother and father and went off killing hogs,sheep,cows,horses,and people,leaving cloven tracks after it went back into the forest.All legends contain some measure of fact,legends that last for 300 years must.
