In 2008 the March full moon fell on Good Friday, the day after the vernal equinox. The equinox has forever been associated with ritual, pagan and Christian. That night something very strange happened in Northern Kentucky. Could it be that a mysterious sighting of a creature in Erlanger, KY is somehow connected to the Christian calendar or the cycle of the moon? Could it be...a werewolf?

Since the dawn of history most cultures around the world have accepted the existence of werewolves and other shapeshifters. As recent as the 1860's reference books were published and read about werewolves. In today's liberal culture of skepticism and cynicism, werewolves have retreated into film and fiction alongside other monsters like Dracula and Frankenstein. It is now common knowledge that the Dracula legend originated with the historical Vlad the Impaler. We know that legends are rooted in historical fact. And as for Frankenstein, in 2008 we can indeed create a human being in a lab through the evil of genetic engineering. We can even grow tissue. Throughout history mankind has recorded monsters in every place and in every culture. Where there are no monsters the devil helps men create them. Given the recent sightings in the usually quiet community of Erlanger, perhaps it is time to reexamine our position on werewolves as mere fiction.
