Episode Summary

EDIT
The Real Wolfman
AIRED:
Profiler George Deuchar and cryptozoologist Ken Gerhardt investigate the legend of the notorious Wolfman. Between 1764 and 1767 the French town of Gevaudan was plagued by a beast that attacked and killed 102 villagers. The victims were mauled and decapitated and bore the bite marks of a non-human creature, and many victims were found undressed and sexually assaulted. For centuries the true identity of this mysterious "wolfman" has remained a mystery. Digging into the mythology of Werewolves, they uncover reported paranormal transformations, diseases that make men look and act like animals, strange but true stories of children raised by wolves, and the truth about wolfsbane and silver bullets.moreless

  • Interesting show, I did enjoy most of the documentery. I cant believe how incorrect the conclusion, I would hate to have those detectives on a real case . score 75. The cryptozoologist was definetly correct.moreless

    7.5
    During the testing with the firearm, I realized that the detectives have no knowlege of 1700-1860 AD French era or any other nationality firearm. Typical firearms of that time used a cloth patch . The cloth patch surrounded the ball, lead, silver or any other metal. The ball never touched the rifleing, the cloth wadding or patch transferred the spin to the bullet. Furthermore the typical rifle ball of the time was .69 caliber. Almost twice the diameter of the modern rifle used in thier test, 4x the weight & twice the killing power. Yes, the hyiena escaped from a private collection, yes the farmer was typical of the time a hunter & hunters know where to hunt. Thanks RBBmoreless
