Can a wolf charmer control a werewolf?

can a wolf charmer control werewolves

can a wolf charmer do this?

Have you ever heard of or seen pictures of the Pied Piper of Hamelin?  He was a man that played the pipe (a piper).  Legends say that he would play a magic pipe to lead rats out of the town of Hamelin, Germany.  The townspeople hired him to do this – and when he didn’t get paid, he used his magic pipe to lead the children out of town.

A wolf charmer is very similar to the Pied Piper, however instead of charming children or rats, the wolf charmer uses music to charm wolves.  Many accounts indicate that he too, like the Pied Piper, played a pipe to charm the wolves and once they were under his spell, the wolves would do anything which he commanded…typically this happened during nighttime hours.  Other accounts indicate he could charm or call wolves simply by whistling.  Some legends claim this ability to control wolves and call them to bidding came from a pact the wolf charmer made with the devil.

Because of the wolf charmer’s ability to charm, they are often accompanied by wolves – and in fact are often leaders of packs.  But it is not just wolves that they are said to be able to charm – it is also said that they can charm or entrance werewolves.  Legends of wolf charmers can be found in many areas of France, in paritcular Languedoc, Auvergne, and Guyenne where they are known as  Meneur de Loups which translates into English literally to mean “leader of wolves“.

    I don’t know how to comment on this but I could just say that this is not really true. Charming wolves? Not quite so much, you know it needs more than a charmer to charm a wolf. I used this 3 formulas to be the charmer or LEADER:


    That’s the formula I used to be the leader.

    I doubt that a pipe or whistle could charm a wolf, especially werewolves. Most likely, the person would be killed or seriously maimed for trying. But hey, go try to be like the mythbusters, it’s your funaral.

    @charmergirl2468: By that completely misinformed answer on the behaviour of wolves, I’m going to presume you’re trying to be funny.
    But you’re right on one thing, this wouldn’t work.

    I guess that in a way wolf-whisperers control wolves so I don’t really see how controling them with music is any more impossible or hard to believe than that. However, I don’t believe the stuff about the Devil- that’s probably some biased Christian tale made up because of their hatred for the Pied Piper.

    @Josie: Dog/horse/wolf whisperers don’t “control” the animals, they recognise body language and use it to their advantage to encourage animals to do what they want.
