Sightings of Black Dog / Barghuest / Padfoot
Posted: Fri 22 Jul, 2016 3:24 am
A fairly common bit of folklore that seems to be widespread across the British Isles is that of a large spectral hound, usually black with a shaggy coat, enormous feet and with eyes as big as saucers. To encounter this beast is usually a bad omen portending a death for the poor witness or that a member of their family could soon pass away. There seem to be quite a few accounts of this mythical canine from around the Leeds area, although they seem to occur many years in the past. Perhaps its just an old suspicion and old wives tale but has anyone else had any more contemporary sightings of this hell hound around our city?
