Forest rangers are experts in the wildlife inhabiting the forests they patrol. But in 1980 , the chief Ranger Wharton State Forestry Alan MacFarlane saw something that both outraged him and baffled his knowledge of wild animals: a violent scene on a farm in South Jersey where a flock of pigs was killed. He reported that their necks were eaten, and their bodies were scratched and torn. However, there were no traces of blood on the ground around the bodies. Could the Jersey Devil crave bacon?

Original news

Forest rangers are experts in on the wildlife that inhabits the woods they patrol. But in 1980, Wharton State Forest Chief Ranger Alan MacFarlane saw something that both grossed him out and stumped his wild animal knowledge: a brutal scene on a South Jersey farm where a pack of pigs had been killed. He reported that the backs of their heads were eaten and their bodies were scratched and torn. However, there were no tracks surrounding the bodies and no blood on the ground. Could the Jersey Devil have been hankering for some bacon?
