The Beast of Craggy Island, also known simply as The Beast, is a mythical creature which many of Craggy Island’s inhabitants believe is terrorising sheep!
“They say it’s as big as four cats and has a retractable leg so it can leap up at you better and it lights up at night and it’s got four ears, two are for listening and the other two are kind of back up ears and it’s claws are as big as cups and for some reason it’s got a tremendous fear of stamps, Mrs Doyle was telling me it’s got magnets on its tail, so if you’re made of metal, it can attach itself to you and instead of a head, it’s got four arses”
There are many conflicting rumours as to the Beast’s physical form. It has been described by Hudd Hastings as being “as big as a jaguar” and it’s entire face being nothing but “big, white teeth as sharp as knives” while Mrs. Doyle believes it to be a “sort of giant fox”.
