There is a house at Rooskey called the Lucky Pets house in this house there lived an old woman who used to turn into a hare. The people around there used to get no milk from there cows so one day a man sat to watch the cows and he saw a hare sucking the cows and he fired a shot at it. Then the hare hopped over into the ditch. When the man went over to the ditch he saw an old woman standing in the ditch bleeding and after that the milk never was taken from the cows.
