          Wenri Crunch-Hand, the giant wolf that bites off the hand of the god Tsiw, is depicted in this Petroglyph and inscription.  it was placed just to the left of the image of the god, above Woden-lithi's dedicatory inscription at the Peterborough, Ontario site.  It is located ca. 30 ft. southwest-by-west of the main sun god figure.  The inscription reads:


       W-N-R = Wenri = Old Norse Fenrir, the personal name of the giant wolf;

       M-L = mel = "to grind or crunch” and M-N-D = Old Norse mond = "a hand."  (Fell 1982).
