yo, catch up on your mythology and folklore. The origional werewolf legends were mostly of 'good' werewolfs. These legends origionated mostly from a section in france. Irland had werecats. There were other werebeast stories from all around the world, but the werewolf we know and love today origionated from france. I'll try to find an online copy of some of the myths. Mostly it was people (usually a man) who were cursed to become a wolf. He usually made the best of a bad situation by saving the kingdom. Later the stories evolved into 'bad' wolves. I like though to remember the origional 'good' wolf.

Johnathan:

Actually I was just quoting stuff I found on the web.

But I really appreciate you sharing that.

I also find it interesting that none of the several sites I checked mentioned these good were-wolves, where it all started.

This however does fit the pattern with wolves in literature fiction or non-fiction: starts out with some good stories about wolves, then piles on
the "big bad wolf" ones until the good stories about good wolves, which are actually far closer to the truth, get buried.

And there's another to add to the list of reasons why the wolf makes such an excellent mascot for male survivors! Thanks for pointing that out, brother Johnathan!

Guys - I seem to remember reading about the mythical werewolf being used in early times to scare young children to stay out of the woods and remain close to home. The fear was instilled because children were disappearing or being found murdered in the woods. Sounds like the way they protected their children from "predators".

I really like and support thinking of us like a wolf pack!! Thanks for enlightening me about the wolf!!
