  Sightings of large, unidentified black cats across the United Kingdom are not at all uncommon. In fact, quite the opposite. The nation appears to be positively overflowing with them. They provoke media sensationalism, public interest and concern, and the occasional dismissive comment from government departments. They have become known as Alien Big Cats, or ABCs. Most cryptozoologists suggest the animals are escapees from private menageries, circuses, and the descendants of animals that, back in 1976, were let loose into the wilds of the country after the U.K. government changed the laws surrounding the keeping of wild animals. Whenever and wherever they are seen, savage mutilations and killings are the norm.

  Alien Big Cats may well have supernatural origins. Encounters with the ABCs very often occur in graveyards, in cemeteries, in the vicinity of stone circles, in ancient burial grounds, at sites of archaeological and historical significance, and even in Crop Circles.

  The Black Dog is the name given to a being found primarily in the folklores of the British Isles. The Black Dog is essentially a nocturnal apparition, often said to be associated with The Devil or a Hellhound. Its appearance was regarded as a portent of death. It is generally supposed to be larger than a normal dog, and often has large, glowing eyes. It is often associated with electrical storms (such as Black Shuck's appearance at Bungay, Suffolk), and also with crossroads, places of execution and ancient pathways.

  Black Dogs are almost universally regarded as malevolent, and a few (such as the Barghest) are said to be directly harmful. Some, however, like the Gurt Dog in Somerset and the Black Dog of the Hanging Hills in Connecticut, are said to behave benevolently.


   Black Dogs often seem to haunt ancient lanes, trackways, crossroads, old churchyards and prehistoric sites. Many of these places were associated with local superstitions and the uncanny, they are liminal places, where the veil between worlds was thought to be thin. The haunts of the Black Dogs are also features said to denote ley lines, it has been suggested that they represent some form of energy or natural phenomena molded by the mind into an archetype of the black dog


   It seems that the phenomena of Black Dogs and ABCs are a complex mix of folklore, sightings, and local superstition, which has roots reaching far into the past. There are probably a myriad of different explanations for modern sightings, and Black Dogs and ABCs are a powerful archetype, incorporated into modern stories.


  Are they supernatural, a figment of the imagination, or simply the remains of ancient folklore, told to scare people into not doing something they're not supposed to do?
