As I recall, there were also hoofprints on the roofs of homes. I think that would rule out cows or deer.

Even if we put aside the winged aspect of the creature, I don’t think it’s possible for a cow to build the strength to stand upright on two legs. It’s torso is simply too massive. If it lays down too long it crushes itself under its own weight. That’s why they sleep on all fours. But let’s say I’m wrong. The legend is hundreds of years old. What’s more likely? A species yet undiscovered or cows born in the wilderness ( a farmer would put it down) with only two back legs and learning to walk upright for hundreds of years. Even bears can only walk upright for short distances. How would a cow even get itself upright from the prone position with only two back legs in the first place? Think about the bone structure. The pelvic girdle, the musculature, etc. I just don’t see it. I could be wrong though. And thanks for sharing the theory.
