A folk lore monster. Local to Northern New Jersey, this Yeti-like creature is usually described as being 6-8 feet tall, covered in dark shaggy fur, and vaguely human like. The most common detail (and the one its named for) is the large red eye(s) that it sports (whether its one eye or two varies). It is not particularly known for violence or destruction, instead it causes noise pollution and loss of sleep. Nights when sightings occur are usually associated with wild howling which can continue for hours on end. It also just plain scares the bejesus out of people it runs into.
