  Sidehill gouger - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Sidehill Gougers are mythological creatures said to inhabit the Rocky Mountains of British Columbia and the southwestern sandhills of Saskatchewan.
According to legend, little is known about the nature of the Sidehill Gouger as they are a rare and reclusive species, but they have one distinctive feature upon which all Sidehill Gouger spotters agree; the legs on one side of their body are significantly shorter than the legs on the other side of their body.
The size reached by adult Sidehill Gougers is widely disputed, on the other hand; some sources indicate that they are no larger than mountain goats, whereas others attribute major landslides to Sidehill Gougers that become turned around from their usual orientation and dig their feet into the ground for stability.

As long as I am talking about strangers moving into a community and disrupting things let me tell you a story about the Sidehill Gouger that was the victim of people newly arrived in the western part of America.
As described by my grandfather the sidehill gouger was a rather largish animal of rather non-descript color that had two legs on one side of it’s body that were shorter than the two legs on the other side of it’s body.
Handicapped by the two shorter legs on one side when ever a side hill gouger ran into a road it had to try to cross because it could not reverse direction without tumbling down the hill and with the roads being flat a sidehill gouger again just fell over and lay there until it expired.
