The vanishing hound of Aylesbury.

This account dates from before the 20th century. For many nights in a row, a farmer walking to milk his cows early in the morning, came across a large, black dog which blocked his path. Gradually he became annoyed with having to walk around the dog and hit the creature which instantly vanished...the man however was said to be paralysed from that moment, never to speak or move again.

The horse-dog of Clackmannanshire.

Last reported as recently as 1997, and before that 1975, this entity is a strange one. Described by witnesses as a horse with the legs of a dog, this creature is seen around the woods in daylight hours, vanishing very quickly once spotted.

Jack the Ripper identity revealed?

We love the whole Jack the Ripper thing - articles, books, documentaries and fantasy based on facts, so when the story broke that the killer's identity had been discovered using DNA evidence, we had to have a look. The piece in the Independent newspaper told of an author and a scientist who claim to have found out who 'Jack' really was beyond doubt, however on reading the article we (and clearly the writer of said column) thought...nah!

See it for yourself HERE and make up your own minds :)
