The Beasts and Monster Dogs of Britain
|Weird and Wonderful Links:|
There are many stories and have been many sightings over many years of mysterious beasts, big panther-like cats and monster black dogs living in and around the south west of England. These strange creatures are even now supposed to inhabit the wilder moorland areas of the counties of Somerset, Devon and Cornwall - savagely gored pet cats and dogs, sheep and other farm animals, and strange howls in the middle of the night have all been reported in the last ten or so years on the Quantock Hills, Exmoor, Dartmoor, and Bodmin Moor. These and many other stories about wild beasts have been around for many years and have inspired writers like Arthur Conan Doyle to create famous tales like the Sherlock Holmes story 'The Hound of the Baskervilles'. Some legends tell of fiery-eyed black dogs, which if seen or heard spell an early death to the person or a member of his family; and church yard dwelling monster black dogs, which protect the dead from the Devil and evil spirits.
