A shape shifter of the Isle of Man that stole people into the hollows of where it lived. One account tells if it looking like a black calf that disappeared into a lake, making the sound of chains dragging on the floor. Another story tells of how one Buggane in the form of a man stole a girl and carried her over his back. Before he jumped down into the hollow and the deep waters the girl found her turnip knife, cut her apron and quickly escaped.
