Wildly clouts an unwanted creature (6)
I believe the answer is:
'an unwanted creature' is the definition.
The definition and answer can be both animals as well as being singular nouns.
Maybe you can see an association between them that I don't see?
'wildly clouts' is the wordplay.
'wildly' indicates anagramming the letters.
'clouts' anagrammed gives 'LOCUST'.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for locust that I've seen before include "Destructive insect; tree" , "Swarming grasshopper" , "Destructive creature" , "Predatory grasshopper that swarms" , "It strips plants" .)
