The Werewolf of Ansbach

In 1685 the Bavarian town of Ansbach was being terrorized by a large vicious wolf. The rumors were that the wolf was actually a werewolf whose identity was that of the town's dead mayor.When the wolf was killed, the people of Ansbach dressed the wolf's carcass to resemble their dead mayor. It was then put on display in the town square and later moved to a museum.
