Remains of Black Shuck found in ruins of Leiston Abbey?

An old legend in Suffolk, England, tells of a massive black dog, known as Black Shuck, which terrorized the village folk, and was the subject of a report in 1577 by the Reverend Abraham Fleming. Now archaeologists believe they have found the remains of a huge dog buried in the area. (photo)

Black Shuck is recorded as having killed at least two people on 4th August, 1577 at the Holy Trinity Church, Blythburgh. The dog, estimated to have weighed over 200 pounds, was found buried only a few miles from the recorded deaths.
