The Northern Mewuk say:
Too-le'-ze the Big Wolf is a hunter. Like He-le'-jah the Cougar or Mountain Lion he hunts Deer, but he hunts in a different way. He chases them like Choo'-koo the Dog but catches them by the throat with his claws, which he sinks deep into the sides of the throat. In the early morning he howls long howls. He used to be common here but now is rarely seen.
