I don't know about the superstition that they cause or portend tragedy or death, but I do know they exist. I've never seen one, but I know many who have, including my mother-in-law. Its always the same description, black dog, red eyes. They have been seen worldwide.
The most common ghost animals are black dogs. These often appear to people just before they die. Some of these ghostly hounds have been seen bursting into balls of fire or exploding. Black shuck is a phantom black hound seen in many parts of England.
