A couple of days ago I posted a piece to share about a werewolf myth based out of Argentina, the Argentina president adopted a Jewish man to prevent him turning into a werewolf. Now, I have learned the mythical reason behind this adoption may not be true.
The Guardian (UK) reported the Argentina president did not adopt a Jewish child to stop him from turning into a werewolf or el lobizón (the child is reportedly a 21-year old adult child). The original claim echoed throughout the internet, including on LycanTimes, before The Guardian chimed in with a well-written explanation.
Yep, I took the bait and ran with it, but only to share what is out there. This is a good lesson on trusting information over the internet, whether it’s actual or tabloid news. Whether the myth was true or not, it does make for a good werewolf discussion.
