Constable Morgan, of Blicks River, reports to Sub-Inspector Creagh that several well-known residents have seen an extraordinary creature in the bush on the Serpentine River, near the Grafton and Armidale Road.
The creature is described 3 about three feet six inches in height, with a head like a diamond snake, hands like a kangaroo, and a body like a mans, but dark and hairy.
One man saw the creature on six different occasions, and on one occasion, he was chased by it.
Search is now being made for the creature, with a view to its capture.
