There has been a strange sighting of a strange creature in a suburban New Jersey town – and pictures of it have residents asking “What the heck is that?”
CBS 2’s John Slattery was working the day watch out of Manhattan, when his boss gave him this juicy assignment.
He took a vehicle out of Midtown. The sighting happened on Friday. He and his cameraman headed for the leafy community of Ridgewood, which was apparently being terrorized by an odd creature that lurks in and out of storm drains.
Slattery obtained video of the creature from a resident, but, like CBS 2’s reporter, was mystified.
“I saw a strange animal in the front yard,” witness Rob Lyons said.
Lyons had the presence of mind to shoot a picture of the creature on his smartphone.
“It was too small to be a coyote. Definitely not a dog. Might be a cat. Prances like a cat. It was weird,” Lyons said.
