- Archaeologists think they may have found the "hell hound of Suffolk":
Archaeologists have discovered the skeleton of a massive dog that would have stood 7 feet tall on its hind legs, in the ruins of Leiston Abbey in Suffolk, England, according to a news report in The Express. The remains are near where an ancient legend spoke of a hellhound called Black Shuck, said to have flaming red eyes and a rugged black coat, who terrorized villagers. The name Shuck derives from the Old English word scucca meaning ‘demon’. [...]
The remains of the massive dog, which is estimated to have weighed 200 pounds, were found just a few miles from the two churches where Black Shuck killed the worshippers. It appears to have been buried in a shallow grave at precisely the same time as Shuck is said to have been on the loose, primarily around Suffolk and the East Anglia region.

The department of corrections sent a letter to the editors saying the article “has been censored due to content which contains information which can be used to instill violence or hatred among the offender population.” The magazine plans to appeal but expects this to be futile as the Supreme Court has given prison authorities wide latitude in such matters.
