The waheela is a cryptid canid reported from the northern United States. Its name is more frequently applied to the great white wolf of Canada's Nahanni Valley, as they are both described as giant white wolves.[1]

Loren Coleman discovered a colonial-era account of a waheela from Michigan, where three trappers supposedly sighted a "phantom-like giant white wolf" near a lake.[2] Karl Shuker writes that this encounter was fatal.[3] This Michigan account is the origin of the name "waheela".[4]

Dale A. Drinnon mentioned a supposed Bigfoot sighting which may have actually referred to the waheela.[5]
