A strange human monster that lived in the Volgar region of Russia. It was a large man in shape, covered in hair and with backwards feet. It lived in the forest and could be heard laughing but not seen. It would capture any horse left unattended and would ride it to death during the night. It ambushed travellers and tickled them to death. The way to overcome the Ovda was to press inside its left armpit where there is a hole. This rendered the creature useless allowing one to escape.
