Country Canada

The Waheela is a wolf-like cryptid reported from Nahanni Valley in the Northwest Territories of Canada. Cryptozoologist Ivan Sanderson thought that the waheela might represent a relict population of Amphicyonids, prehistoric bear-dogs (but which he incorrectly referred to as dire wolves, which were true canids).[1]

The waheela is similar to the Shunka Warakin, but inhabits a far more northern habitat. It is also similar to Amarok, a giant wolf from Inuit mythology. It is reported to travel alone and not in packs as modern wolves do.
