A large furless bear that terrorised the Seneca people of North America. Two heroes, Hadebtheni the Speaker and Hanigongendathe the Interpreter went on a quest to kill the beast. They obtained the advice from a spirit that there bear in indestructible save for the soles of its feet of which it can be harmed and that it is easily fooled by figures representing people. The two heroes stalked the beast and set up two wooden carvings of human shape outside a hut. The bear went to devour what it thought was humans but was then attacked. After a long fight the heroes managed to shoot the creature in its feet with arrows. As the beast lay in agony the heroes sawed of its feet and burnt the body.
