This phenomena occurred in the vicinity of Harpers Ferry West Va. and Md.areas. I have searched on ATS on any articles of the Wizard clip and the
Snarly yow. There were no articles on wizard clip but Snarly yow turned this up.
What ever this is? and surely does not pertain to this post.
I’ll start with the wizard clip first (Yes I know, I could have made this into two post.)
"One of the most wonderful manifestations of God's benevolence during the struggles of the primitive Church in these United States" – such is the
impressive estimate of the learned Jesuit scholar, Father Joseph M. Finotti, concerning the extraordinary but little known spiritual drama which took
place some 200 years ago near Martinsburg, West Virginia.
The above link is a bit Church bent, but I think the date given is closer to the true date, than the later link.
As an adult teen I spent a lot of time in Harpers Ferry, west,Va. There I encountered a historic plaque with the story of the wizard clip, needless to
say I was fascinated with the story.
The Snarly Yow, this is a campfire favorite, I heard this as a young lad.
Around the turn of the century, a beast resembling a huge dog with large paws and an ugly red mouth was known to exist on South Mountain, east of
Hundreds of people saw the dog, and horses particularly were afraid of the strange animal. The dog suddenly would appear on the National Pike, now
Alternate Route 40, blocking the road. Without inflicting any damage with its vicious-looking teeth, it would confront travellers, then disappear
before astonished men and women. The Black Dog, or Snarly Yow, as the locals called it, seemed to have been relegated to old accounts and memoirs...
until the beast was again seen by credible witnesses in the summer of 1975.
Hope you enjoy the post.
