The Black Dog of Cold Knap

South Glamorgan – Paranormal Database Records

In February 1997 at around 11pm, it was reported that a person was sitting on the pebbles with their two dogs. They watched another dog, that was black, move silently across the beach about fifty metres away. The witness stated that their curiosity was raised as despite the rocks and stones underfoot, the dog moved smoothly and their own dogs were completely oblivious to the canine.

Sixteen years later in September 2013 at around midnight, the same witness reported seeing a nebulous black cloud that formed around their feet. The witness tolerated the cloud for a few minutes but then left.
