10 The Ghost Bear
The Tower of London
The ghost of a bear is said to be haunting the Tower of London, where the Crown Jewels were once held. One night in 1816, a guard on duty saw a huge bear and lunged at his bayonet. At the time, the Tower had its own menagerie that was later moved to the London Zoo and Regent's Park in the 1830s. He could have thought one of the great bears being in the menagerie had escaped!
The bayonet went through the bear and was plunged so deep into the wood of the door that it took two men to remove it. The apparition faded away after the guard attacked it. 
9 The Phantom Horse of Bryn-Y-Maen
A white horse haunts the back roads of the town of Bryn-y- maen in North Wales. It was seen on two separate occasions by different people, first by a man driving the back roads to stop being stopped, as his car was not taxed.

Suddenly, a huge white horse came over the hedge, and he thought it would crash through the bonnet of his car: "It filled the windscreen!"  The car spun as he slammed on the brakes, but he did, the horse vanished.
On the second occasion, a young couple were driving the same road and approaching the dip. Again, the white horse came over the hedge but disappeared as they hit the brakes.
8 The Chicken.  The Chicken. A possible explanation, or at least a clue, has been offered to the account of a large horse Ghost Of Pond Square
One extremely cold day in 1626, Sir Francis Bacon was passing the Pond Square in his carriage with a friend. Bacon was arguing his new idea of preserving food, instead of salting meat, it might not be able to keep it so cold that it did not deteriorate. His friend, the king's physician, did not agree, but nevertheless, Bacon obtained a chicken at a highgate farm, plucked and cleaned it, and packed with snow, inside and out.
Pond Square was reported to be suffering from spasticity in its wake. The chicken would allegedly vanish when anyone tried to approach it, and sightings continued throughout the years. For example, in World War II, it's been trying to capture it, but it ran through a wall to escape. Around the same time, a passerby heard what sounded like a coach and horses, but nothing but there is a chicken running around in circles. The Merrivale Pigs
Merripit Hill for 200 years  On misty nights when walking the roads, you might stumble across them making their way to Cator Gate, starving and searching for food. As legend has it, the sow and piglets knew that they were going to Cator Gate, they were looking for a dead horse to eat.
The pigs are said to speak, too! The piglets cry out, "Skin on 'bones, skin on' bones!" To which the replies, "Let 'un lie, let' un lie." Back they go, then, over the moor searching for food, only appearing
6 The White Rabbit of Thetford Warren Lodge
Thetford Warren Lodge was built on the Brecks, on an ancient and wild landscape in Norfolk where prehistoric farmers once kept sheep and rabbits. The lodge was built in the 1400s by nearby monks in Cluniac priory as a residence for the warrener, the man in charge of maintaining and catching rabbits on the brecks for food and their skins. The Brecks are filled with small rabbit burrows.
One big white rabbit with glowing red eyes is said to be haunting the lodge and is having an omen of death to whoever is unlucky enough to see it. 
5 The Black Dog Of The Newgate Prison
Newgate Prison Once Upon A Time The Old Bailey and what a home to a supernatural hound that was an omen of bad luck.  A prison inmate first wrote about the hound in 1596 and recounted that during a terrible famine in London, the prison inmates had turned to cannibalism to stay alive. A scholar was imprisoned at this time, having been accused of witchcraft, and no sooner had he come than he was overpowered by the stronger men and eaten.
Shortly afterward, the inmates began seeing a large, black dog roaming the dark corridors, and one by one, each one had the scholar was hunted down and torn apart by the beast.

4 The Demon Cat of Capitol Hill

But when he fell down and did not feel the weight of the cat, he lowered his arms and realized it had disappeared.
Could such stories be just the drunken ramblings of the night watchmen, who were probably just friends of powerful men who needed an easy job? You might think so, except that when the concrete was poured out in 1898, six to eight perfect paw prints were found indented in it.
3 The Black Cat Of The Hellfire Club
