A creature from the American lumberjack tales. It was the size of a horse with the front paws of a bear and the hind parts of a moose. It would walk on its hind legs and sometimes walk on its two front paws to leave different tracks in the ground. It is said that it would walk 440 steps on its front legs and then walk on its back legs. This made it very difficult to hunt down and became a creature of great stealth. It had a hunger for cloth and would eat the washing left out by local people.
