The Creature of Cranberry Marsh -- April Fool's Day, 1969
The Newark Advocate reported that strange "monster footprints" had been found in Cranberry Marsh on the shore of Buckeye Lake:

"The footprints were evidently made Sunday when what is described as a wild-eyed, scaly animal crashed through a row of hedges lining the south-side of the lake.
'Definitely prehistoric' was the explanation of one official, blanching at the first sight of the weird prints."
