Myth and Folklore: Do any animals besides black cats supposedly bring bad fortune?

Yes- hares. Legend has it that witches transform themselves into hares, so crossing a hare’s path may mean meeting up with a witch. Further, hares have been believed by some to be melancholy creatures; thus, eating a hare can ruin your day. (The Book of Answers, by Barbara Berliner)
