Subject: RE: Folklore: the wampus cat
One of the first fantasy computer games, created by a UMass student from California, was called "Hunt The Wampus"

It's interesting that Greg Yob, the creator, was a DJ at his college radio station in Davis California (KCD then, KDVS now) and played a wide mix of folk music, international and avant-garde music. Make's me wonder if he knew about this folk song.
