The Dover Demon is a creature sighted in Dover, Massachusetts on April 21 and April 22, 1977 by seventeen year old, William Bartlett. He claims that while driving on April 21, 1977, he encounters a large, glowy eyed creature with “tendril-like fingers” on top of a cracked stone wall on Farm Street in Dover. Another teenager, John Baxter, reported seeing a creature with the same description in a wooded area on Miller Hill Road. Some skeptics say that the creatures may have been a moose calf based on the description.
Police reported to the Associated Press that the creatures, mostly reported by teenagers, were probably nothing more than a school hoax from bored high school students.
