These are fierce hunters of humans found in the myths of the Cheremis and Mari people of the former Soviet Republic. Their name means ‘Dog Nose’ since they have the body of a human with the nose of a dog. They only have one foot and one hand but this does not impede them in being excellent hunters. They work in pairs and use their keen sense of smell to track down their prey. Because they hunt in pairs they leave tracks of two human feet. When a person finds these tracks, they are deceived into thinking they are tracks of another person and not the Pi Nereske.
