The Santer is one of the many creatures from the tales told by the lumberjacks of Wisconsin and Minnesota in the 19th and early 20th centuries. The Santer was a varmint from Mason and Dixon Line. It was commonly found in western North Carolina. It has a long body covered in red fur with a large round bald head. It has long legs and feet staring at its prey with small eyes and a mean look. Its tail is as long as its body and it has 8 knots in it causing its tail to resemble a string of beads. It can use its tail to knock out a cow or hog but rarely does it fight as it uses its great speed to flee from scraps. The Santer is not a danger to humans but it does feed on livestock. It lives in swamps near villages close to cattle and hogs. It has a horrible wail and dogs are too scared to attack one.
Once a calf was found injured by a Santer. It had 7 clear bruises on its body and a broken leg. By each of the bruises was red hair clearly indicating that this was an attack from a Santer.

Did you find Santer interesting? If you are skilled in art, then why not draw a scary or actioned-packed drawing of the Deadly Santer and send it to this website. Could such tales of recent sightings be simply false? Perhaps there is some truth in these serpents, Bigfoots, spirits and other creatures of the paranormal. Watch National Geographic's Paranormal: Bigfoot and decide for yourself. And if you're that way inclined with Bigfoot check him out in the horror movie Night of the Demon (1980). Oh but its not Bigfoot but a Fearsome Critter? Well take a look at them in Fearsome Critters by Richard Svensson or watch the Walt Disney film Paul Bunyan (1958) for some lumberjack folklore. Other contemporary mythical animals appear in the video game Red Dead Redemption: Undead Zombie Nightmare.
