Drakoulias

A drakoulias was a large, furry, quadrupedal predator native to the ice planet Delta Vega. It made a very distinct sound while attacking.

In 2258 of the alternate reality, a drakoulias attacked James T. Kirk, who was marooned on Delta Vega. Before the drakoulias could reach him, however, a hengrauggi burst out from the ground, grabbed the drakoulias, and threw it into a mountain. (Star Trek)

The drakoulias was designed by Neville Page. It is named after Star Trek music supervisor George Drakoulias. Its name was not referenced on screen, but comes from official production sources and is used on licensed products for the film. [1] The film's production team also called the animal a "polarilla", as it was designed as a cross between a polar bear and a gorilla (in the novelization, Kirk mutters to himself that it resembles the "bastard offspring" of those two animals). [2]
The virtual collectible card battle game Star Trek: Rivals has an image of the Delta Vega Drakoulias on card #43.
