The following is the original Latin of Schreyer (1682)):

Relatio de Monstro Vitulino-humano a Dn. D. Schreyer Physico Cizensi communicata. Exhibuit flumen, quod Cizam alluit, juxta pagum Bornitz, die 17 Julii 1681, monstrum horrendum, cujus cervici vitulino appositum erat capat humanum. Hujus in superiore parte eminebat velamentum membranaceum mitriforme corrugatum: frons Spitanum excedebat, & ubi desinit, oculi erant clausi, e quorum regione utroque latere erigebantur aures felinis non majores. Nasum (deficiebat vero sinistrum foramen) habebat depressum: os patulum, utrinque dentatum. Mentum onrnabat pili barbam caprinam nentientes. Collum videbatur elongatum: pectus vitulinum cum anterioribus pedibus: posteriores suilli, suillaque cauda in extremo pilosa. Caeterum totius monstri cutis nigricans erat ac a pilis nuda, sexusque monstrum foeminei. Interiorum examen vehementissimus foetor prohibebat.
