Black Shuck: Demon dog

In 1577, an enormous black dog killed three people in a church in Bungay, East Anglia, in England. It strangled two of them and shrunk the other.

There are lots of stories of demonic dogs, particularly in England. Often they’re called the Black Shuck, or the Old Shuck. But these stories aren’t often as gruesome as the one of 1577. Usually the dog just appears, scares the living daylights out of you with its glowing eyes, and trots off.

But in some parts of England, they believe the Black Shuck is a bad omen, and if you see it, it’s a signal that someone you love will die soon.

Bad dog.
