Get ready to take a journey into the world of the peculiar and unexpected.
The Phantom Black Dog goes by different names, such as hellhound, black dog or ghost dog. All around the world The Phantom Black Dog, conjures images and omens of death. For many in the United Kingdom, the black dog represents a dark tragedy.
These spectral hounds or demonic entities, can take on many different forms. In fact, they are large, with big red glowing eyes. Sometimes they might even have a human face, and walk on their hind legs. Incredibly, as soon as these beasts are seen, they can vanish into the night.
One story that is well-known, took place at St. Mary's Church in Bungay, Suffolk, England. It was Sunday, August 4th 1577. Apparently, the black dog appeared in the church during a storm, and went on a rampage of death and destruction. Those that perished could not withstand the black dogs attacks with claws as sharp as razors.
Legend has it, that the hellhound, quietly, sneaks, and creeps around the towns of England. The beast can be watching you, and you might not ever know it. It can get close to you, and by the time you realize it, it's too late.
There have also been reports of a large, shaggy animal, stalking the streets, with eyes glowing, and then it quickly runs straight into a brick wall, where it mysteriously disappears.
There has been more than one report of the phantom black dog appearing, and then charging at a person on the street in England, late at night, only to dematerialize, And the ghost dog does this, just before it sinks it's huge fangs, into the passerby. This is truly astounding!
Many of the stories surrounding the sightings of the hellhound are eerie and bone-chilling, because it can appear, terrorize you, and then vanish. But if it wanted to it could appear, and kill you, just like it did to those poor souls in St. Mary's Church in Bungay, Suffolk, England, in 1577.
These stories of the black dog are enough to keep families home at night. Furthermore, these horrific stories are enough to make parents warn their children of a dark beast, that could devour them, if they dare sneak out late at night.
For some reason these black dogs seem to haunt churchyards, graveyards, lonely country roads, and streets late at night. Some believe these hellhounds to be guardians, while others, believe they are omens of doom. But once you've looked into the flaming, burning eyes of the phantom dog, you're left trembling in an awful fear, that never leaves you.
One thing is for sure, scholars will always have their theories, but the black dog still remains an unknown phenomena. The legend of the phantom dog will continue to warn and terrify, long after we're all gone.
