Into the Woods! The Werewolf of DoleSeveral children have gone missing in the woods. Some are found dead... chewed to pieces. One little girl is attacked by a wolf and escapes with her life. The townspeople are convinced there is a were-wolf in the woods so they get a court order to search the woods and kill the beast. It reads in part...
- "... the Court, desiring to prevent any greater danger, has permitted, and does permit, [...] to assemble with pikes, halberts, arquebuses, and sticks, to chase and to pursue the said were-wolf in every place where they may find or seize him; to tie and to kill him, without incurring any pains or penalties." -- September 13, 1573.
