Has anyone heard of an urban legend apparently in Cumbria regarding a weresheep - not wolf.

Thanks,

Karen

No.
But it sounds a bit like the horror film 'Black Sheep'.

I think you may be interested in the story of the Hexham Heads. That's the nearest thing to a Cumbrian Weresheep tale I can recall.


The thread on this is here...

I have a really vague memory of a weresheep urban legend, something called the Bele or Beale Sheephead. Something about a half human/half sheep monster, I believe - I read this years and years ago, in the book '500 British Ghosts and Hauntings' by Sarah Hapgood, but I've sadly since lost the book, and google isn't being very helpful in telling me more.
