Northern England - Scottish Carnivores, Bigfoot, Etc.
I'm currently researching one aspect of cryptozoology, following up on the mentions in the Welsh Triads and several other pieces of early Arthurian literature of a Gwrgi Garwllwyd, the rough-grey man-dog. In the Triads he was mentioned as a cannibal and ally of the Saxon king Aethelfrith of Berenicia. In a Welsh poem whose name escapes me at the moment, Arthur's knight Cei (later Anglicized to Sir Kay) was reputed to have battled with Garwllwyd at the Battle of Trfwryd (Tribruit). The same poem mentions Cynbyn (cynocephali) at he battle and mentions Mynydd Edyn (Edinburgh) as the site. Of course, it also mentions that Manawydan ap Llyr (Manannan mac Lir) was one of Arthur's knights. I'm also attempting to pin Gwrgi as the source of the Sawney Beane legend.
Now to bring it back towards cryptozoology, my researches have turned up some pretty bizarre predatory creatures in Wales and the English counties bordering Wales (near Liverpool and such) and I have some older reports of what could be wolverines or something similar in Wales. I know that some of these predators are reported from north England (Hexham, somewhere in Cumbria if I recall). Then there's the Hexham heads and that wolfy guy. I'm even attempting to see if I can work in things like the Grey Man of Ben MacDhui.
So here's what I'm looking for. I wonder if folks could let me know about anything concerning wolves, werewolves, mystery carnivores, or even hairy hominids (Bigfoot) from any of these relevant areas.
