DescriptionA more complete version of the 'Beaten Wife Spirit' story. A man beats his wife, who afterwards is bitten by a snake and dies. Her husband returns and realizes that his wife is now a spirit when he sees her suck the nose of the anteater he has killed. Her spirit then pursues her husband, who runs away; the spirit falls into the creek and is eaten up by the fish.
