The White Hare

The ghost of a white hare has been sighted running from Talland to the “Jolly Sailor”. It is purported to be the spirit of a young woman who committed suicide. However, others have suggested that this could be yet another of the ghost stories fabricated by smugglers to keep unwanted eyes from their devious dealings.
