I've only heard of some girl that haunts Difficult Run, but the "Demon of Vaso Island"? That's news to me.
Check this one out though. I had a hard time believing something like this could still exist in Ffx. Co., but I know a guy down there who actually has an airboat that he uses to motor around the area (Yeah, the marsh is really that big). Granted, back in the 1970's (When this article first appeared), there was still a lot of farmland in Ffx. Co.
The Wildlife Officials claimed that it was most likely just a bunch of Peacocks, but I sort of have trouble believing that more so than the original claim.
A while back I read somewhere that this "creature" has been mentioned in much older writings, and that there have been more recent experiences, but I can't find the documents supporting such. People have also claimed to have had things thrown at them as well (Which is typical of Ape-like behaviorisms, and is common in so called "Bigfoot" encounters).
Btw, the story mentions audio recordings (Tapes) made of the sounds, but I've never heard them before. It'd be interesting to actually be able to compare the noise with other known critters.
