The “kirk-grim” is a Scandinavian shape shifting animal phantom that haunts old churches. It is thought to be the ghost of an animal buried alive in a churchyard as part of a old-time blessing ritual. It usually appears as a horse, pig, or lamb. In Denmark, the kirk-grim lives in the church steeple and protects the building.
