The Wampus cat comes from American folklore as a variation of a fierce cougar. It also is compared to the Ewah of Cherokee mythology.

The Wampus cat supposedly still haunts the forests of east Tennessee. Other legends state the Wampus cat is the spirit of...

By the 3rd century BC, geometry was put into an axiomatic form by...
