I was actually having dinner when I saw that pic for the first time earlier tonight...just as I was chewing away happily on a nice bit of chicken too.

Oh me, oh my rolleyes.gif

Maybe they were named by a very near sighted and confused farmer?

I'm afraid to say that werewolves are one of those things I just don't believe in.
I suspect they're a mixture of myth and sightings of other creatures, such as wolves or bears.

It's even possible that the black dog phenomena may have added to the legends.

Do werewolves exist ?????? Hmmmmm let me just think about that one.erm no.  No living animal can miraculously change into another species.
There is however a medical condition called zoanthropic paranoia, sufferers of this believe themselves to be animals and will attempt to drink blood and eat raw flesh, but his does not make them werewolves.....merely very sick people.

TFM, I apologise to you again for being harsh with my reply ( I'm not a nasty person honestly ) but perhaps this subject would be more at home in the cryptozoology forum

Werwolves fascinate me, and I've read so many fiction books about them that are absolute favourites. I've just finished one recently by Kelly Armstrong called Bitten, and am eager to get the follow up as she painted such a beautiful picture of them, and you could tell she had really studied actual wolves and knew their behaviour to be able to write the book.

I don't know if they exist or not. I don't want to say though that I don't believe they are real!

There is another medical condition...I wanna say it's actually called Lycanthropy.  It's where the person has hair all over their body and they're really sensitive to sunlight.  As one might imagine, it's a really rare disorder, but I'm willing to bet that enough people have had it over the years to give rise to the werewolf legend.  So werewolves kind of do exist...

Is this medical condition called lycanthropy or did you say that because another name for werewolves is lycanthropes?

If there were werewolves the last thing they would want is to be found out, as they would be publicised and tested on and never left alone, so it is possible that they do exist but have great expertise on keeping the other side of them hidden from prying eyes.
