It was first reported August 27, 1997 by four girls, between the ages of nine and fourteen, who were staying at a caravan park next to a pub at Short Ferry, a small hamlet next to Fiskerton. They described seeing a four-foot tall jet-black ursine-like creature eating a pheasant. The girls, scared, fled immediately to seek help in the pub. When they returned, they saw large paw prints. A motorist reported the beast again that evening, near where the girls saw the critter. On 2011, it was reported again various times.
