While visiting a frequent haunt of hers, a woman named Stephanie Smith was out taking photos of different 19th century architecture in the Roundhay Park area, located in Yorkshire. Little did she soon realize, that she captured something rather unusual with her camera.
It wasn’t until later (when she looked back at her photos) that she noticed what resembled a canine type beast, lingering in the shadows near a decorative castle built back during 1811. The myth of these type of hellhounds, dates back throughout history from folklore stories.
Typically, all of these hellhounds are described being about the same with their characteristics. There is one strange phenomenon known to linger in this area among others. It has been given the name “gytrash”. This demon dog, has been feared and talked about for many years.
When Stephanie examined this photo closely, she began to notice this dark figure in the shadowy part of one area. Stephanie said, “I froze when I realized the shadow was some sort of animal, it took me a moment to figure out what it was but once I could see the head, ears, tail, and legs, there was no mistaking it was a demon dog”.
After brightening up the image, further details can be seen. This figure does resemble that of an animal. Whether or not it actually is a demon dog is up for interpretation. Whatever it is, this shadowy figure looks out of place for such a bright sunny day. Most paranormal type activity occurs during the late night hours and not typically during the day.
Stephanie also added, “It took me a moment to figure out what it was. The gytrash is usually taken as an omen that something bad’s going to happen to you or to someone you know. So, I’m shocked that I’ve got a photo of it.”
One can only wonder if this hellhound was ready to pounce upon its next victim. A man unknowingly wanders by, without a care in the world. His fate may have been sealed otherwise.
