Huge mysterious human-like creature, allegedly living in the forests of Quebec.
According to Indian legends, specially in the mythology of the Algonquian people, the creature "goes naked in the bush and eats Indians, and makes a sinister hissing noise, often accompanied by fearful howls, to strike terror into the hearts of everyone who hears it." This nasty cannibalistic spirit is rumored to have a taste for children, and to be able to take human form in order to stealthly stalk its unfortunate victims.
These beliefs allegedly have been linked to a supposed northern native American psychological compulsion to eat human flesh, said to occur among the Algonquian peoples of Canada. This craving for human flesh is thought to be brought on by desperate cannibalism during famine cycles.
