Monster of the Month: January

Wendigo: The Wendigo is a Native American creature that they say is created when a person decides to forsake human convention and become a cannibal. That does not sound like an idea situation; I mean who wakes up one morning and says to them self, " Hey, I think I want to eat human flesh today!"

Most Wendigo's were made back in the 1800-1900's when people lived in the woods and foraged for food. A bad winter or lost travelers could go for days without food or without shelter and became crazed and would attack and eat anything that got in its path.  Wendigos after eating human flesh then turn into these hairy monsters that then live in the forest and hibernate during the winter and hunt the rest of the year. They live in caves deep in the woods and can live for hundreds of years.

A Wendigo can live off of the remains of one adult body every several years. It is solitary, it lives and hunts alone. Hikers and campers that go missing and that are never found again may be victims of this monster. It is said to have a heart surrounded by ice and can only be destroyed by piercing it with fire.
