Plan to eliminate the werewolf
Some of the reasons humans would hunt down a werewolf include for sport and for research. But not all humans can or want to hunt werewolves for sport, it is a very dangerous sport in fact, probably the most dangerous sport around for both the human and for the werewolf.Werewolves are extremely swift, smart, and can quickly map territory in their mind! Werewolves usually know the humans next move and can predict most suspected hunters positions. Hunters at this point have a disadvantage because the werewolf is usually one step ahead of him in knowing what to expect. But that does not mean that the werewolf will escape the hunt. Many werewolves are not killers and most times it takes a killer to escape the wrath of a human hunting a werewolf. The human is ready for the kill, the whole purpose of the hunt is for the kill! If the werewolf is not ready or cannot handle it then he/she could become a fast and easy target for any experienced hunter.
But not all werewolves are hunted down for the kill. Some are stalked for research, and many werewolves would consider being captured for research worse than being killed by a hunt. Scientists will organize in a fashion that puts the werewolf at a disadvantage. They will use dart guns that will subdue the werewolf for many hours, and when the werewolf wakes up he might be in a lab. The poking and prodding of these labs could be worse than a fierce battle with a hunter because atleast in a battle you have a chance of escape. Usually there is nothing a werewolf can do if he/she is caught for research, they will continue to inject the serum into your body until they are done doing research to get more information about your “disease” or “curse.” However, this research is conducted under time limits, they must fully analyze you before you change back into human form and there are also restrictions against scientist holding a werewolf in human form captive.
The agreement scientists have with the government in catching werewolves is pretty simple. They can catch and subdue werewolves legally, however, the werewolf must be in werewolf form. A werewolf cannot legally be caught in human form because of the difficulty to prove such an affliction without holding you in containment for a long period of time until your transformation. So the research must be conducted while you are a werewolf and before you transform back into human form the humans must release you back into the territory that they found you. This is the proper method for scientists but keep in mind not all scientists follow proper procedure.
Annihilation of the werewolf? Even though humans enjoy hunting and enjoy conducting research on strange and mysterious animals some humans want nothing to do with any of that. It actually gets worse than that because some humans would rather see the werewolves annihilated as a species altogether. The goal of these humans is to limit the werewolf population so that eventually their numbers as a population dwindle to extinction. This form of elimination and eventual extinction is purposeful and very different from the hunting method. This is when the humans want nothing to do with the werewolf and will at any cost eliminate all werewolves with disregard for any of their ways of life.
