A woman in England suspects that she may have snapped an image of a 'demon dog' seemingly ready to pounce on an unsuspecting bystander. The eerie photograph was reportedly taken by Stephanie Smith while visiting Roundhay Park in the city of Leeds. Specifically, she was admiring a decorative castle built at the site in 1811 and long-rumored to be home to a variety of spirits. One such phenomenon believed to lurk at the park, as well as a number of other similar locations in England, are demonic dogs known as 'gytrash.'
With that in mind, one can understand why Smith was gobsmacked when she later looked at her photos from the trip and spotted something peculiar lurking on some steps. "I froze when I realized the shadow was some sort of animal," she recalled, "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." Smith noted that the image was particularly unnerving because it appeared as if the ghostly creature was lurking in the shadows and possibly eyeing some prey.
