Forget Bigfoot, panthers and UFOs...there’s something even more chilling on Cannock Chase.
It’s time for the fabled Hellhound – a portent of doom – to take a bow-wow.
Reports have been received on paranormal websites of the demonic dog roaming our area.
The hound, also known as the ‘ghost dog of Brereton,’ has been seen on numerous occasions stalking the roads leading into Brereton.
The apparition has been described as large, black, muscular, with sharp pointed ears and strangly glowing eyes. British folklore indicates that the black dog forewarns death.
The most prominent sightings happened in the 1970s, and early 1980s. Whilst driving through the Chase in 1972, Nigel Lea described seeing a ball of light crash into the ground.
He slowed down to take a closer look and was confronted by ‘the biggest bloody dog I have ever seen.’
