Cu Sith and Black Shuck Phantoms or Faery Dogs?
« on: July 11, 2006, 07:03:45 pm »
The British Isles are rich in folklore with tales of phantom and demon dogs attacking lonely travelers and being an omen of death. But there are also tales of them being associated with Faeries! Cu Sith was a phantom hound that haunted the Scottish Highlands said to be owned by faeries. He would cross the realm of the Faery to ours to seek out mortal victims. Men would hear his blood curtling barks from the hills and hide their wives for they knew what he had come to take. The Cu Sith would come and steal mortal women to use their milk for Faery children. The beast was normally the size of a cow or calf and was dark green or black. This creature sounds a lot like the legend of Britian Black Shuck, but it was conected with the Devil or evil omens.

What do you think, any conections?

Ah the black shuck. Interesting. Perhaps faeries have a connection with other British anomalies as well, will o'the wisps for instance.

One of the many ways Faeries take away mortals.

Maybe Black Shuck and Cu Sith are actually the same being.
