Update on The Bull Demon of Lumberton

For almost 3 years, Denny has been fighting the town of Lumberton over whether or not he could keep a 2000 lb, 11 foot tall state in his backyard. Original post can be found here. They gave him a permit to put it there, then when it was transported in, a few people complained and the town decided he could not keep it. Their position was that he had not been fully forthcoming when he applied for the permit, thus the permit was null and void. In 2007, Denny’s lawyer, the town lawyer and a state supreme court judge hammered out a deal. The statue can stay where it is but it must be rotated to face away from the roadway. In addition it sat on a 2-3 ft mound, and the mound must be removed and it be placed on a level grade. Despite almost 10,000 in legal bills, Denny got the last laugh: the town lawyer got fired over this whole mess, since it obviously cost the town a lot to fight this.

      The house is up for sale so the beloved Bull Demon was moved to Old Red Lion Road a short distance up the road from Red Lion Metals scrap yard,but on the opposite side. Drive slowly and you will see it in someones back yard who is using it to ward off Evil Spirits!

          That Bull Demon is still sitting in the back yard of somone living on Old red Lion road. You can see it from the road if you drive slowly. I think they’re waiting for the Jersey Devil to show up for a title match between the two.

    I’m a nearby neighbor of Denny’s. It’s my understanding that the statue was a prop used in a real motion picture from many years ago,and Denny bought the thing down in Deleware and brought it up here. Leave it to Lumberton to beat him up over it. He lives right in the middle of fields and horse farms so I dont see why an 11 ft Bull demon statue would look out of place?

      who gives a damn if it looks out of place. his property. he should be able to put on it what he wants IMHO.

    I always wondered what the story was behind that thing! We pass it on the way to my in laws house from Hainesport. Pretty interesting! My kids love it!
