Werewolf fiction – cannibalism
A recent rumor I read that I’d like to dispel is that werewolves do not perform cannibalism. In other words, werewolves do not eat other werewolves. I’m not sure where this piece of werewolf fiction came from, but it is not true. Yes, it is true that werewolves are territorial, and like to have their own space traditionally. Fights can sometimes break out between werewolves over control of space and territory. Even though werewolves may confront each other and fight however, even if one werewolf is killed in the process, they will not eat the dead body. The werewolf will leave the body. This is not to say that they don’t sometimes fight each other – because they do – just to say that even if a werewolf is starving, and needs / craves nourishment, a werewolf will not stoop to the point where he/she is eating his own kind. They do not see each other as a food source. Nor do they eat each other out of vengeance.
