The closest evidence that I've come across in favour of the existence of a werewolf - like creature, was in relation to the Beast of Gevaudan (La
Bete de Gevaudan).
This creature definitely existed, and it left around 100 bodies in it's wake as proof!
The only question is... what was it? Werewolf? It certainly ticks many of the boxes.
There are loads of sites with good tales of La Bete, but I'll add a link to one of the best ones here;
La Bête du Gévaudan was a real wolf-like monster prowling the Auvergne and South Dordogne areas of France during the years 1764 to 1767, killing
about 100 people, often in bizarre circumstances. Every effort to stop her failed and she became nationally infamous. The King - Louis XV - took a
personal interest, one reason being the unrest she caused in an area of religious/political tension and potential revolution. Many explanations -
mutant, prehistoric beast etc. - were put forward at the time and during the two centuries since but none has ever been generally accepted. The
important firm fact is that sufficient evidence remains to prove La Bête really did exist and was not just a myth. Among all the popular monster
mysteries she is unique - she left behind one hundred bodies proving herself real and guilty beyond doubt.
I got a bit of a chill reading about La Bete because there is NO DOUBT that this beast really did exist and really did kill about 100 people, evading
capture for many years. Anyway - I hope that enjoy reading about "her"!
