Did you know werewolf hysteria swept across Europe way before the witch trials were ever thought of?
It all started in the 1500’s in Germany with a man named Peter Stubb who was said to have killed many people because he claimed the devil made him do it and that the devil gave him a magic belt that turned him into a werewolf.
Wow! They just can’t let up. Can they? They seemed to blame all their woes at the time on wolves. That’s crazy.
If you like to read the story yourself about Peter Stubb being a werewolf It’s pretty interesting but the images that they have of him are pretty horrendous & graphic. So just discretion advised , click at your own risk.
