Woodland Mythical Creature

My mythical creature is taken from Slavic lore. The old witch that lives in the forest and eats small children who get lost in the woods. The old witch is a cautionary tale, told to kids to scare them away from the forest at night. Sometimes described with knives for hands, and often with an animal familiar that follows the witch's pray as they stumble through the forest until they are too tired to run. The witch carries a magical sack that can hold a thousand lost souls after the witch has devoured their bodies for supper, which she uses to fuel her dread spells and curses.
