Gytrash

Region of origin: Northern England

One of the British Isles’ various Black Dogs, the gytrash was less a definitive portent of death than some of its relations, but still rarely a pleasant encounter. It would appear to menace travelers on roads at night and try to lead them off their course. Aside from a dog, it was also supposed to be able to take the form of a black mule or horse, also known as a “shagfoal.”
