What Does a Legend Become, When the Truth Outruns the Fiction?
It began as an April Fool's Day prank, a simple poem set to music, crafted to play on the radio a few times and then disappear.
Then something very strange happened. The joke reversed course. A mysterious, centuries-old Indian legend revealed startling parallels. A French fur trader's diary from 1794 told of an encounter with "loup garou." A letter from 1857 described a creature that stood upright like a man, yet "bore the countenance of a grey wolf."
Then contemporary witnesses came forward by the score, bringing with them photographs, film, audio recordings, and dramatic physical evidence.
The Legend became real.
