175 – Creepy Creatures and Canadian Cryptids

Like any other region, Canada has its share of stories of fantastical creatures that may or may not exist. Dark Poutine has covered a few of them. In episode 25 we learned of Swift Runner, believed to be possessed by the cannibalistic spirit known as Wendigo, we talked about, Ogopogo, the giant serpent in Okanagan Lake in episode 113 and of course, in episode 131 we gave you a primer on Sasquatch aka Bigfoot in Western Canada and the USA. In this episode, you will learn about some of Canada’s lesser-known cryptids, The Loup-Garou, The Thunderbird, The Toronto Tunnel Monster and The Giant Spider Bat.
