Which animals do Muslims consider impure and evil?

black cats
black dogs
black horses
black spiders
Ac­cord­ing to a Sunni nar­ra­tion clas­si­fied as au­then­tic by Muslim ibn al-Ha­j­ja­j, black dogs are a man­i­fes­ta­tion of evil in animal form. Ac­cord­ing to many Muslim schol­ars, a contact with a dog's saliva requires one to wash seven times. The British Trans­port Police receives com­plains sug­gest­ing that sniffer dogs trained to detect ex­plo­sives should no longer come into contact with Muslim pas­sen­ger­s.
