The Devil's Cur (UN-B-3894)
Though the hound managed to inflict great wounds on Watts, the gathered villagers soon beat it down, with stones, staffs and anything else at hand. Eventually the dog breathed its last, and two volunteers carried its lifeless body back to the barn.

The village doctor was soon in attendance, and assured all present that Watts would survive his injuries. Feeling somewhat responsible for Watts' condition, Glyn Harris arranged for his two sons Ioan and Dylan to return to the barn with the intention of disposing of the remains of the dog. But upon entering the store they found the hound's carcass gone.

On the advice of the village constable, the two brothers were not to reveal the fate of the dog to anyone, and if asked should answer that they had buried the carcass as intended.
