Description A mythical spirit who wanders the night. The tale goes that a very young couple had a child, but because the mother was too young to nurse the child, whose cries drove them to distraction, she poisoned the child, leaving the body in the woods. The child presumably survived to become the nosuckle, a beast which haunts the dark woods, seeking fulfilment of its need for suckle.
