Maybe the Jersey Devil is one of those winged horse things from Harry Potter, and only certain people can see them...

The Jersey Devil legend was a hoax written by Ben Franklin in 1732 in his 'Pennsylvania Gazette'. It was meant to be a parody, and mock witch hunts. In 1735 it was published as fact in the 'London Gentleman's Gazette'. Lapiche edit: and we never called the Pine Barrens 'Place of the Dragon'. We called it 'Mahkiirac Alowii' which means 'Big Thicket'.

I went through The Gazette, and 1732 doesnt appear to have a mention of JD Pennsylvania Gazette, Jan 3-Dec 30

http://forums.njpinebarrens.com/showthread.php?p=67755 http://www.aclink.org/HISTORY/mainpages/jerseydevil3.asp From what I can gather, the stories of the Jersey Devil are related to Ben Franklin because they started after he wrote a fictitious story about a witchcraft trial; he did not write the stories himself about the JD.

I wasn't even aware that people were still seeing that thing. I thought the mass "confirmed" sightings really stopped around 1910. `Course depending on where a "strange, winged creature" in general is sighted people will call it different things unless someone really gets specific about appearances. If a strange winged creature is seen in New Jersey it's the Jersey Devil, if it's in West Virginia it's Mothman, if it's in the Philippines it's the Aswang, etc. I can tell you one thing: I've lived in this state all my life and I've never seen any Jersey Devil, though I don't live near the Pine Ba...
