The winged horse is a creature that has its roots in many different mythologies from around the world. There are instances of winged horses in Turkic, Chinese, Norse, and Tibetan mythologies. Of course, the most famous winged horse was Pegasus of Greek mythology. In the case known as “Guardians of the Gryphon’s Claw,” (SL001-180) we learn of the secret presence of winged horses in Redwood National Park. One particular horse, named Gus, is a friend of Ranger Penelope Naughton.
