The Burach Bhadi, or " Wizard's Shackle", is a serpentine leech with nine eyes on the top of its head. It lives in shallowlochs of Scotland's man-made lakes and channels.
It attaches itself to victims, dragging them down to its dwelling. Most notable, this eel-like leech creature lurks by the shallow waters. When it smells the scent of passing horses, it strikes; attaching itself to the horse's legs. Then it drags the horse underwater and drains it of all blood.
