On infrequently, legendary figures are shown to be real. This is the case in today’s article, where experts used the most cutting-edge technologies to discover what appears to be a mythical hellhound from the 16th century.
The inhabitants of the British Isles were frightened by the brutal killings of a huge hellhound known as Balck Shuck, whose name is thought to derive from an Old English phrase meaning “black monster.”
After 500 years, the bones were discovered beneath the remains of Leiston Abbey in Suffolk by archaeologists. The dog’s bones was inspected by a veterinarian, who determined that it was at least 7 feet long and weighed anywhere between 200 pounds and 300 pounds.
Local legend holds that the legendary creature first emerged in 1577 after a storm close to Holy Trinity. The wooden doors of the church, where the villagers had sought safety, were no match for the power of the beast.
A man and a child were killed, and then the beast left the creature. On the church door even now, you can still see the claw impressions from it.
