A old hag that lurked in the Dane Hills in Leicestershire, England. She had long claws and yellow fangs. She lives in a cave called ‘Black Annis’ Bower’ which she carved out of rock. She killed cattle and sometimes lured children into her cave where she would skin them before eating and leave their bones hanging from trees. Many parents would scare their children with stories of the Black Annis.
