Title: Hare and the Milk Tin

In Llanerfyl parish there is a story of a cottager who had only one cow, but she took to Llanfair market more butter than the biggest farmer in the parish.  She was suspected of being a witch and was watched.  At last the watcher saw a hare with a tin-milk-can hanging from its neck, and it was moving among the cows, milking them into her tin-can.  The man shot it and it made for the abode of the suspected witch.  When he entered, he found her on the bed bleeding.
