    In the British Isles the hare was once thought to be a witch's familiar or could even be a witch metamorphosed in disguise. The belief is so strong that if a hare crosses your path it is considered bad luck.

    Many stories of hunters shooting hares only to find that they had shot witches, who had returned to human form upon their death.
