A wolf. There are two kinds of werewolves, voluntary and
involuntary. The voluntary were, of course, wizards, such as Gilles Garnier,
who on 18 January, 1573, was condemned by the court of Dôle, Lyons,
to be burned alive for the abominable crimes of lycanthropy and
witchcraft. More than fifty witnesses deposed that he had attacked
and killed children in the fields and vineyards, devouring their raw flesh.
He was sometimes seen in himan shape, sometimes as a loup-garou.
During the sixteenth century in France lycanthropy was very prevalent, and
cannibalism were rife in many county districts.
