The Mountain Witch. Follow the scent of this legend...

For as long as anyone can remember, the Mountain Witch lives in a secret cave under Mount Orford in the Eastern Townships. This human-looking being has surprising and very useful powers for her comings and goings; as soon as she touches a footprint, an animal carcass or even its hair, she can transform herself into that animal, if she so desires.

Taking advantage of the nights to wander along the ridge path, she moves so fast that she can cross the path to the top of Orford several times without being spotted, leaving in her path a strong smell of spices that could be mistaken for pepper. She could stick to tasting greenery and roots, but her weakness for meat, preferably red, makes her do crazy things. The small and large game that falls under her long, sharp tooth fills her up.

During the hunting season, a year when food was scarcer, she went down the mountain to get closer to the houses. She spotted a black cat that looked very tasty to her. She captured it, ate it, and found it delicious! This delectable imprint left on her taste buds pushed her to venture more and more often near the dwellings. She soon realized that white, stained or tiger cats were just as delicious. Since then, more and more mysterious disappearances of stray cats during the night have been recorded...

Everyone will remember that in the 1960s, Mount Orford was ceded by the government to a private company, and that is when highway 10 was built from Montreal to Magog. Needless to say, the Mountain Witch was greatly inconvenienced by the blasting. Becoming nervous and disturbed, she began to frighten night hikers. She grazed them with terrifying howls, which some people thought were the coyote's cries.

Eventually, campers wanting to enjoy the wilderness forced her to move her cave. She was so upset that she became so angry that a thunderstorm of unprecedented proportions set off, flooding several properties along the shores of Orford, Stukely and Fraser lakes.

She finally accepts to live with the mountain's visitors, but to remind them that she has granted them a privilege, the mountain witch takes a malicious pleasure in maintaining a microclimate between Stukely and Magog, throwing heavy rain, ice, snow and blowing snow, depending on her mood at the time. Whoever wishes to come and live in or transit through these regions must do so at their own risk ...
