Who Are The Wolf Men?
Here, well-known extraterrestrial investigator Linda Mouton Howe explores tales of wolf-like creatures from around the world. Sometimes called werewolves, wolf men or barghest, these creatures often were linked to a isolated hill or a remote, heavily forested area.
Herodotus, the ancient Greek historian, presented the oldest remembered story of a wolf man found in The Epic of Gilgamesh, from around 2,100 B.C. Howe talks with Paul Sinclair, a British filmmaker, who has a new documentary called Wolf Lands.
Sinclair delves deeper into the legends emanating from Flixton, along the North Sea in the United Kingdom. Wolf-like creatures, able to walk perched on their hind legs, were said to be able to surgically mutilate sheep, cattle or wild animals, before returning to underground caves in which they lived.
