Happy Halloween to all! Beauty and the Beast is a great fairytale, but a real beast stalked the French countryside in 1764. It attacked not just children or teenage shepherds, but grown women in the middle of the night. It was said to have a head like a wolf, glowing eyes, and stood on two cloven hooves. It couldn't be an ordinary wolf. Bodies were found so savaged, the heads of its victims were found weeks later. What could the monster possibly be?
