<star>A terrifying entity manifested itself before a person on 23 November 1904. Godfrey H. Anderson was walking along a street in Edinburgh, Scotland. Suddenly, he saw a grotesque "something" rise out of the gutter & sprang up at the throat of a horse. According to Anderson's description [cited in "Creatures of the Outer Edge" (1978) by Jerome Clark & Loren Coleman] the horse's weird attacker was a "vague black shape about 4 feet long & a half feet high... (it was shaped) like an hourglass & moved like a huge caterpillar." The horse reared up in terror, & as it did so its assailant vanished. This story remains a mystery...<fullmoon>
