The legend of Oude Rode Ogen began in the Flanders region of Belgium in the late 1600s after reports of children turned up missing and believed to be victims of a cannibalistic shape shifter. Witnesses claimed of seeing a large naked black man running away after trying to steal a young girl from her bed, he was shot at and seen to change into a large black dog. A homeless black man was soon found living near Nekkerspoel and without trial was lynched and skinned alive. The skin is said to be buried in the basement of St. Rumbold's Cathedral in Mechelen.
