I don't know what the truth is on the hyena but I have two other stories from this exact location in Dedza about hyena's and witchcraft. They are anecdotal and will not prove anything to anybody but they are the reason why I believe what I do. I'd share them later if anyone is interested.

well, this is an interesting topic since werewolves have been sighted in europe & the US over the last 600 years or so. One of the most famous ones is the bray road beast. this one is fairly recent, but was sighted in wisconsin, of course it was first sighted on halloween so thats suspect in my opinion. people still dress up and go out in strange places to scare people.

A lot of the time people would use a local hallucinogenic plant, like belladonna, and believe that they would morph into animals.

Shapeshifting on the other hand is a fact. And it's a very common practice in some countries, as well as the zombie and etc.

Huh. I thought zombies were known to be unfortunate victims of curare poisoning?
Could you give us a bit more evidence supporting shapeshifting to be physically possible (as opposed to mental shapeshifting, etc, commonly carried out amongst certain shamanic peoples with the aid of hallucinogens etc)?

I have heard a couple stories that might prove some evidence, try searching for point shifting. The ability to transform one point of youre body into an animal form.
There is also soemthing called Biokinesis. Which may also explain some things.
as for a werewolf mmm its hard to say. The closest to evidence would be a spiritual therian.
Oh, but try looking up Rosalyn (sp?) Greene I think she wrote it. I don't know how credible she is but maybe you can find some answers in her bibliography.
