The Dover Demon

http://www.qsl.net/w5www/dover.html

This is a great encounter but I've noticed that people in this field tend to make assumptions or at least I do.

I'm not sure why it was called a demon nor do I understand why it is classified by most as a cyptozoological creature when there would appear to be nothing terrestrial about it.

Hey Mini, great read. As we know Cryptozoology is the study of the lore considering legendry animals in order to evaluate the possibility of their existence and cryptids are the name given to the animals that they study. So does the point you are making mean that you cannot find a legendry animal to compare it against, or a demon in folklore that compares to it. I must admit it does look quite alien like with the pear shaped head and long arms and fingers. it could even be an albino type of creature. Thanks for that link.

Strange you mention Albino Rob, yesterday I was looking out down the valley, and noticed a bird I had not seen before feeding with the black and white Magpies, so I got the binoculars out and took a look, and was surprised to see what appeared to be an Albino magpie...all the rest where the normal black and white but this one was cream and white.....in all my life I have never seen a magpie like that and I have seen millions of them.

It reminds me of the Mothman except this thing seems so vulnerable. Truth of the matter is I don't really know what to make of it. But I guess I like the encounter cuz it doesn't involve any psychology and so much of this UFO/ET stuff is just based on psychology. Here's a better link if anyone cares: http://members.aol.com/soccorro64/doverdemon.htm

Hey Mini thanks for that. Its a really intresting read. There seems to be some reason fo doubt though. The 3 boys who are linked together draw exactly the same creature yet the last people to see it draw something completly different although all have it on 4 legs. Do you really think it looks like the Mothman? Thanks again Mini.

Here's a story that speaks for itself....

Weird News

Jungle workers find 'alien' - and heartlessly beat it before they see what it ACTUALLY is

By Kara O'Neill

5 February 2015

© 2015 Trinity Mirror

The mysterious beast was filmed by workers who spotted it crawling through the undergrowth in Malaysia

Would you have taken this strange-looking creature for an alien?

That's exactly what panicked workers assumed the beast to be when they came across it in the Malaysian jungle.

And they were given just as big a shock when they realised it was in fact a malnourished BEAR.

The confused employees, who work at a palm oil plantation, discovered the creature as it climbed through the undergrowth on all fours.

According to reports, the employees mistook the strange being for an alien, prompting them to launch an attack on the mysterious creature.

It was only after they had beaten it with a stick that the workers realised that far from being an extra-terrestrial , it was actually a malnourished bear.

Worker Herman Tutu, 33, said: " We were completely shocked as none of us had ever seen such thing.

"It had very strange shaped claws and when it saw us it came towards us. One of us then hit it with a stick several times until it passed out."

After the animal regained consciousness, the workers then filmed the creature as it attempted to climb back into the undergrowth.

Conservationists from wildlife group , Naturetalksback, have condemned the attack on the sun bear - a vulnerable species that has declined by more than 30% in just three generations.

"A local endangered bear gets the living daylights beaten out of it, is filmed, and then paraded on the interwebs as a 'freak of nature' or a 'monster'," the group wrote on Facebook.

"This is not right."

I suppose one observation and lesson to be taken from such a senseless act is that not everything strange should be tagged as some alien or monstrous creature.

Sadly that is the prevailing thinking with some nowadays. The urge to act on it in this manner is another matter. It is a good (bad?) illustration of "what's the harm in some belief" mindsets. When confronted with a belief possibly manifesting itself they can't deal with it rationally. Then again it could be rational if the belief is that aliens have to be destroyed. I wonder where that came from.

I think you are right Ed...it's basically fear of the unknown.

Regarding the original post about the Dover Demon, it's the same as the other myths like Mothman, Loch Ness Monster, Bigfoot, etc....they are all 'monsters' that people have reported for many years; some going back centuries btw.
Are people actually seeing a real entity....or is this about psychology / hallucinations and folklore?
