Islanders defend against 'werewolf' threat

The people of an isolated island in the Philippines undertake nightly patrols to protect their animals.
According to Inspector Brian Odien, Sibale Island's chief of police, the region has seen an extensive spate of mysterious livestock deaths over the last few years and the islanders believe that werewolves are responsible.

Hundreds of volunteers under supervision of the police have been undertaking regular patrols at night in an effort to protect the island's dwindling goat population from the creatures.

The attacks, which allegedly only occur on nights before a full moon, have seen more than 200 goats killed with their blood sucked out and internal organs removed.

The phenomenon has become such a problem in fact that the locals now fear that the mysterious assailants will turn to attacking humans once all the goats are gone.

Department of Agriculture Regional Director Cipriano Santiago claims that more than 57 farmers have lost animals over the last two years.

"People have been advised to hold their goats in a fenced area or under their houses where they can be given protection," he said.

"People have been told not to confront the animal on their own but to call for help."

It is a little nothing of an island. About 2.5 miles by 2.5 miles (4 km by 4 km). Seems like a small hunting ground for a werewolf. Though I guess no one can really get away?

If it is such a small place simply gather all the islanders in one place and sit it out till one of them starts sprouting hair and fangs-bingo you've got your man What is worrying,according to the old Lon Chaney films,a werewolf only goes after the one he loves,does our culprit have feelings for goats?

Didn't Grimm do an episode on this? Thought the Aswang only went after humans. On the werewolves and full moon, didn't the phase get changed to the 3 day cycle of the full moon? Still sounds like teh farmers are looking to replace their sick or old goats with new ones for free.

Strange. They are on an island and blood and entrails sound like the contents of the chum bucket of a shark fisherman.

Well, they are brave. It takes guts to actually go looking for something you think is a werewolf.

Hell yeah! I'm in. Hunted a lot of stuff but never a werewolf. Could be fun. Besides the look of amazement when I show up with my "Boom stick" they will be amazed! Mike
