On the morning of February 9th, 1855 the townspeople of Devon, England awoke to find a series of mysterious hoof-shaped foot-prints tracked across the newly fallen snow. As if this wasn’t odd enough the strange foot-prints continued on course for a shocking 100 miles, moving in a consistent straight line and traveling over any obstacle that lay in its path. The puzzling tracks pressed forward over high walls, houses, across rooftops, through rivers, and even exiting drainpipes as small as 4 inches wide.
Following the strange appearance of the hoof marks, many eye-witnesses claim to have seen a small “devil-like creature” stalking the Devon countryside Though many townspeople armed themselves and took to the surrounding area to search for the creature, nothing was ever found.
It wasn’t until the morning of March 12, 2009 that the mysterious hoof-prints appeared again in the Devon snow. Though the markings did not travel nearly as far as they had during their first journey, they were reported to have again traveled over every obstacle in their way, before before coming to a stop and disappearing altogether.
