Not a local ones, but what people in here north Scandinavia believed werewolfs looked alike.
Werewolves were seven times more dangerous than other wolves. Their backside of torso were taller than frontside. They walked on three feet and fourth limb were a tail. Werewolves eyes starts watering when they are near humans and they can have more toes than normal 5 per foot, their legs are straight and doesn´t bend from the knee. They also believed that werewolves had a white stripe in their neck and white spot in their chest. Some stories tell that some wolfs when they had been killed and skinned, under the skin you could find something what belonged to man like pocket knife, wallet or piece of clothing.
Most common stories are about wedding guests turning into werewolves, it was a witchcraft done by a guest who wasn´t happy with the wedding party or a beggar who was turned away from the wedding, also dissapointed groom and a mother in law were the culprits. When the spell was over these werewolves turned back to normal people, unless the person had walked as a wolf for a long time some parts of the wolf stayed like a tail or a pawn.

Are beggars going to weddings common in Scandanavia? How strange I must say that if they went even stranger they turn into a werewolf?
