WENDEGO

Native American fabulous creature

Also known as WINDEGO, WENDIGO, WETIKO, WINDAGO, WINDIKOUK

Utterly terrifying Cannibal Monster

You could die of fright just seeing a WENDEGO. That would be the easy way out, for this is a giant starving beast with a never-ending hunger for flesh. Victims are rendered apart and all the parts devoured down to the last tiny bone and droplet of blood.

It carries a feeling of winter famine about it — snow clouds form, trees crack and icy blizzards rise around it.

This gaunt scrawny creature is a warning that there should be a balance between starvation and gluttony. It has come as a lesson to us all.

Heed the warning. Avoid the lesson.
