Werewolves have always intrigued me. A lot of what makes up the public perception of werewolves comes from Hollywood's imagination, with 1941's
'Wolf Man' making a big influence.
Personally, I doubt they exist, but I won't totally
rule out the possibility, but not so much the bi-ped examples that dominate fiction, but
more those in the true form of wolves - shapeshifters.
Herodotus wrote of the Neuri people of Scythia as shapeshifters, changing into wolves once a year. And I believe that the Native American culture
involved shapeshifting. And maybe still does.
Besides, one can easily underestimate the power and depth of witchcraft or sorcery, whether it be 'white' or 'black' magic - who can 100% say
that shapeshifting is impossible via this avenue?
We live in a weird, wild and wacky world. I'm not prepared to completely
rule out the possibility of werewolves existing.
A part of me kinda hopes that they do...
Full Moon, anyone?
