I vote Fake. 1st of all shapeshifting is impossible so throw away the entire idea of Lycans. It's probably just a normal wolf. They can stand on 2 legs for a second life when they're begging for snacks. The sightings are either that or an extreme case of saying I'm here, I exist.

I remember watching some monster hunting show that the host met a man claming he could turn into a wolf. Basicly he acted goofy for a few seconds and then howled and crawled around on the ground.
I like the idea that they could be real but it seems very improbable unless there is some thing than we don't know about the world. I'm sure there is.
There is also the condition of lycanthopy as a disorder where people become violent during full moons but that's just delusions.

Due to a personal experience, I'd say werewolves are real.

Then how do you explain the very basics such as the laws of physics and basic biology that counter the idea and why is there no evidence for it?

People suffering from hypertrichosis must have been regarded as ''real werewolves'' in the past. Some of them really looked like the original Wolfman from the 1940 movie.

Funny thing is that the way the English and Anglo-Americans pronounce "Lycan" makes me turn my head around to look for the one who spoke (part of) my true name, lol.

Claims are worthless though, especially in face of a lack of evidence and failure to understand science.

Welcome to crypto - the rules of science mean nothing as long as they get in the way of silly beliefs.  Logic?  pffffft!  No way.  We are going to take the confirmation bias-boat to pareidolia-town.  Full steam ahead!!!

I truly believe in werewolves, but more like lycans. Werewolves go from man to beast, lycans are trully huge beasts. So lycans a bit more
