A lion or hyena-like creature with long claws and a tail of a fox. It lived in the forests of Sweden dieting on carrion and eating until it was bloated. It would then squeeze itself thin again by walking in between two trees that created a narrow gap. While in between these trees, hunters would kill it but not for its flesh but for its blood which is said to have aphrodisiac qualities. Its blood was mixed with honey and used at weddings.
