The Rougarou II: The Female 'Loup-garou'

The Rougarou II: The Female 'Loup-garou' | French teaching | Scoop.it

 

What fearsome creature howls under the full moon? Loup-garou is native to France and Francophone regions of North America...

 

In French Canada, it can only be one thing: the legendary loup-garou, the lone werewolf of Quebec lore. 

The Loup-garou is fearsome werewolf; said to roam the thick forests of 19th-century Quebec.

 

Akin to the male Rougarou, the female Loup-garou tranforms from a woman to werewolf-like being (she-wolf) at her own will.

 

The legend says that when a person comes into contact with a loup garou and sheds the blood of the beast, the Loup Garou will then changed to its human form and reveal their secret.

 

The victim then becomes a Loup Garou for one hundred and one days. If the victim speak of the encounter to anyone, they become a loup garou themselves.

 

But if they remain quiet about it, they will return to their human form and continue on with their lives. In the legends, the loup garou is said to be someone the victim knows, such as a jealous former lover.

 

What the makes the Loups-ga·rous different from the common werewolves is that they don't change with the cycles of the moon and have complete change over their actions.

 

So, what makes these creatures so dangerous and terrifying is the fact that while in their wolf form they are completely aware and as intelligent as they are in their human form.

 

Like any good legend, the story of the loup-garou changes with the teller. With their enhanced abilities and senses, it make them difficult to destroy. These are magnificent, intelligent and blessed creatures (in some tales), but beware le Loup Garou...


Very often the loup garou to the wendigo. For example, the Ojibwa people tell stories of the “rugaru,” as a creature indulging in cannibalism, which is the same process for becoming a wendigo.


Both creatures are described as large bipedal creatures with fierce animal aspects...
