What is the biggest threat to the werewolf?
The werewolf has no natural predators, so for all intensive purposes, there should be no concern as to what could threaten the species. Yet there are a few things that pose some degree of threat to the werewolf…
This is of course the most common response that most will give when asked what is the biggest threat to the werewolf. Vampires and werewolves are after all not known for their comraderie. Yet the ancient legends of the supposed hatred between the two species is not as black and white today as it once was. Yes, there are some vampire clans that absolutely detest werewolves and have made it their mission to see the species gone. There are others however that have found their peace, and have no issues coexisting with werewolves – instead they see other threats as more immediate and that pose problems to both species and are focusing their attention on those concerns.
It is ironic that although werewolves are humans, humans pose a significant threat to their very existence. The problem at its core is that although werewolves are humans, they are different from other humans…and humans are not known for their love of embracing that which is different or that which they cannot immediately explain. Werewolves must hide their identity for fear of being ostracized from their loved ones (at best) – or hunted and destroyed by those they do not know.
Technology is perhaps the biggest threat to the werewolf. Simply because it makes it extremely difficult for the werewolf to stay clear of human eyes. There are cameras, recorders, and videos everywhere. Satellites and drones are creeping into even the most remote areas, making it challenging for werewolves to stay off the human radar. One thing however that werewolves have done to protect themselves- and have done well – is kept up with technology, and use it to their advantage. Werewolves can be found online often using technology to hide themselves in plain sight.
