They are dangerous, cunning and even evil, and they inspire fear and dread. So what is it about the idea of turning into a wild animal that's so intriguing and alarming? Why do these stories exist in so many cultures around the world? Do werewolf stories have any foundation in medical or scientific fact, or are they simply the product of imagination?
In this article, we'll explore how people become werewolves and what happens during the transformation. We'll also look into what werewolves represent in different cultures, and we'll examine the medical conditions and historical events that have led some communities to believe that werewolves really exist. Characters in "The Wolf Man" break off wolfsbane stems and attach the flowers to their clothing. This isn't a very good idea. Wolfsbane is extremely poisonous -- the word "wolfsbane" probably comes from people using it to poison wolves. Horticulturalists recommend wearing gloves while working with the plant and thoroughly washing your hands afterward.

Clearly, more research is needed, but we are having enough trouble with coyotes and I am not brave enough to tackle the realm of werewolves.

Yes, a fun post to do while fighting a cold. We can make our own rules, but must bear in mind that werewolves make theirs too. So be ever vigilant. Loved the post! I feel much safer now that I know how to defend myself against werewolves. As a child, I was always terrified of the woods at night and just knew a werewolf was lurking just beyond the tree line waiting to attack.
If I had, I might not have been so terrified when I was sent to gather firewood! I forwarded this post to my friend who writes werewolf stories. Great post and I love your sense of humor! Wonderful Blog, Bess!!

I like to sit on my porch and listen to the coyotes sing, while watching the night sky. A rare treat in the NW! Their interesting, but completely fictitious. Keep that in mind when hunting your mythical beast.

watch I'm published by the Wild Rose Press and have indie titles. Using deliciously eerie elements similar to that gothic romance, Beth Tressel has captured the haunting dangers, thrilling suspense and innocent passions that evoke the same tingly anticipation and heartfelt romance I so enjoyed then, and still do now. You can dig for him there.
