North American - A monster in the form of a beaver. This monster appears in the lore of the Nez Percé Indians, and they are his descendants. The trickster-god, Coyote, fought a titanic battle with the monster, winning when he turned himself first into a branch that the monster swallowed and then back into his normal shape, stabbing the monster in the heart. Coyote then created new tribes from the immense carcase of Wishpoosh. Occasionally referred to as Wishpoosh.
