" The WereWolf mythos underscores, in part, impulse control issues analogous to the teenage male id. When one considers that werewolf films are generally targeted at gore-gorging teenage boys whose subconscious minds are busy fathoming the sudden arrival of body hair, voracious appetites, manic bursts of energy and sexual compulsion, the puberty-metaphor seems quite apt...of course after a while the male subconscious settles back into far more free-form studies relating to monster trucks, belly button lint and the sounds pump action shotguns make when chambering a round.

( excerpt from The Werewolf in Lore and Legend by Montague Summers (1880-1948)-- 
Long after he had been extirpated in England the wolf continued to be " rycht noysum to the tame bestiall in all partis of Scotland ". Camden at the end of the sixteenth century remarks that Strath-Navern, " the utmost and farthest coast of all Britaine," is " sore haunted and annoied by most cruell wolues ", who not only set upon cattle but also " assaile men with great danger, and not in this tract onely, but in many other parts likewise of Scotland ". But a hundred years after Sir Robert Sibbald avers that the animal had been wholly exterminated. Although their numbers were no doubt greatly diminished, especially after the great hunts arranged in the days of James V (born 1512, died 1542) and Queen Mary, his daughter, actually it was not until the year 1743 that the last of the species was destroyed at a remote spot between Fi-Giuthas and Pall-achrocain.
One winter day the Laird of Macintosh was apprised that a large " black beast " supposed to be a wolf had been descried prowling in the glens, and less than twenty-four hours before had killed two children who were crossing the hills from Calder. A " Tainchel " or general drive was at once proclaimed, and amongst others summoned to the meet not the least important was a famous deer-stalker, MacQueen, who had the fleetest and strongest hounds in the country. All assembled at the tryst had waited long impatiently expecting MacQueen's arrival ere he appeared on the scene. Macintosh began to upbraid his unusual tardiness, when for answer the hunter lifted his plaid and threw the bleeding head of the wolf at the laird's feet, to be overwhelmed with congratulations and well feed in a generous gift of land for his prowess.
Even later did the wolf maintain his hold upon Ireland, where formerly he existed in such numbers that a special breed of dog, a tall rough greyhound of exceptional size and power, and most highly esteemed, the Irish Wolf-hound, was especially reared to hunt the fierce and fearful packs. " They are not without woolues and grayhoundes to hunt them, bigger of bone and limme then a colt," says Holinshed in his description of Ireland," and Camden writes, " much noisance they have everywhere by Wolues." Thus in the Travels of Cosmo the Third, Grand Duke of Tuscany, through England in 1669, wolves are spoken of as common in Ireland, which indeed had acquired and long kept the nickname of " Wolf-land ".
"Wolves still abound too much in Ireland," Harting quotes from The Present State of Great Britain and Ireland,
1738 ; and in an article on the Irish Wolf-dog printed in The Irish Penny Journal for 1841, Mr. H. D. Richardson says :" I am at present acquainted with an old gentleman between eighty and ninety years of age, whose mother remembered Wolves to have been killed in the county of Wexford about the years 1730-1740, and it is asserted by many persons of weight and veracity that a Wolf was killed in the Wicklow Mountains so recently as 1770."
In his Origins of English History Charles Isaac Elton draws attention to the fact that there was no more usual periapt among the ancient Britons than " crescents made of the wolf's teeth and boars' tusks perforated and worn as charms ". He also remarks, " We know that at one time the wolves swarmed in Sherwood and Arden "; and emphasizes that " the wolf and wild boar lingered until the end of the seventeenth century in the more remote recesses of the island ", a generalization which is perhaps not strictly accurate, since, as we have seen, the wolf in England was extinct early in the sixteenth century, and in Scotland was not finally destroyed until the fourth decade of the eighteenth.
That werewolfism was a sorcery not unpractised by Anglo-Saxon warlocks is very certain, although the records are neither numerous nor detailed. It is not surprising that many erroneous beliefs had grown up concerning these demoniac wolves which the Bishops and priests were at some pains to correct.
In an old Poenitentiale Ecclesiarum Germaniae, occurs the following: " Hast thou believed what some were once wont to hold, namely that those who are commonly called Parcae can effect what they are often supposed to effect, namely that when a man is born they can direct and achieve his destiny, and moreover by a magic spell whensoever certain men will they are able to transform themselves into wolves, and such a one of this kind is called (teutonica) "Werewulff", or else they transform themselves into an other animal shape as they list. If thou hast believed that Man made in God's Image and Likeness can be essentially changed into another species or form by any power save that of Almighty God alone, thou must fast therefor ten days on bread and water."
In England a precisely similar clause, xv -" whosoever shall believe that a man or woman may be changed into the shape of a wolf or other beast..."- occurs in the Poenitentiale of Bartholomew Iscanus, Bishop of Exeter, who died 1184. It should be carefully remarked that no denial of werewolfism is implied, that was far too real and too terrible a sorcery, but it is insisted that there must be a right theological understanding of this dark matter. For many had been reduced into giving the Devil an almost unlimited power, and thus betrayed into the most horrid impiety.
Although it has already been quoted, we may not impertinently remind ourselves of the well-known passage in Gervase of Tilbury's Otia Imperialia, written during the years 1210-14, where he speaks of the English werewolves, men who are thus metamorphosed at the changes of the moon, adding that such shape-shifting was then by no means uncommon in this island. He returns to the same subject a little later in his work, and chapter cxx 31 is sufficiently important to be quoted in full : " Of men, who were wolves. It is often debated among the learned whether Nabuchodonosor during the allotted time of his penance was indeed essentially metamorphosed into an ox, since all...
