Second helpings aren’t always a good thing.  Well, neither are first helpings.

In 1878, a Canadian trapper named Swift Runner ate his family during an extremely bleak and brutal winter.  After his first child died, he butchered and ate the remains.  Though near food supplies and ways to restock, he ate his remaining family members as well.

It is said that eating of flesh like causes a human to become a beast called a wendigo.  Such a monster always craves humans flesh.  They are often in more isolated areas that are heavily forested.

So as the wind grows cold and shadows grow dark, know that in the bleak of winter, there is no hunger like that known by the wendigo.
