What are some great myths about animals?

I've been having odd encounters with animals on the hiking paths of Vancouver Island (luckily no cougars so far) and it has peaked my interest of learning myths and stories that grew through time surrounding these magnificent creatures.
Seeking myths you have heard, websites to peruse, easy to digest stories. Trying to avoid dry editions of Norse mythology I tried reading when I was younger and always fell asleep to.
I'd like the focus to be those found in the forests (especially ravens as I just saw two the size of medium size dogs) around the world.
Bonus points if the stories tie in with Jungian psychology in any way or if relate to Canadian First Nations - west coast focused.
