Devon once again spooked by Satan's footprints

London, Mar 13 (ANI): The sleepy town of Devon in South West England has once again been spooked, after an elderly lady discovered what are said to be the Devil's footprints.

Jill Wade, a pensioner, found the hoof-like marks in the snow in her back garden in Woolsery, and they were a repetition of the first marks recorded in 1855.

"I couldn't believe it - the footprints were in the shape of a cloven hoof. There were no other marks at all in the snow. I'd love to know what it was," the Sun quoted her as saying.

Scientists from the Centre for Fortean Zoology inspected the prints, which were 5 inches long with a stride of between 11 and 17 inches.

The prints matched a mysterious 100-mile trail that was found in Devon 154 years ago, and blamed on Satan.

But the CFZ experts believe that both tracks could have been made by an animal, such as a deer.

They say that they will solve the riddle through further research. (ANI)
