    Should note that the beast was autopsied and found to have 42 teeth—the same as a canine. It was a canine, a really big wolf-dog, most likely part Mastiff, and other wolf attacks were probably conflated into it.

          Lions have been pretty common as heraldic elements and in fairy tales, myths, and fables, all throughout Europe, and France was no exception. They were known well enough.

          Hyenas were even somewhat known at the time.

              To be honest, I'd expect some rich importer to keep it hushed up so they wouldn't get in trouble for their product/pet from killing a bunch of people, especially since the King got involved with the hunt. Which actually brings up my next point, related to this anon:

              When the beast was finally shot, a royal notary documented the autopsy and included a bunch of eyewitnesses who confirmed the body was correct. In the report, they constantly compare it to a wolf, and not a lion or cat, which makes me concur with you.

                I’ll admit the beast’s method of attack is abnormal for a canine, but still—the autopsy and most physical descriptions line up with a canid. I wonder if it was trained by a human.

          You would be surprised what people remember. Especially when it is a major part of myth, a symbol of kings, and is part of idioms ('Lionhearted"). Again, this is the problem with "You didn't see bigfoot, you saw a bear" type explanations. Rather than it being something new or made up, it HAS to be something misidentified based on no supporting evidence or logic other than "well they must have been so stupid they thought it was something it obviously wasn't."

    Some richfrick imported a baboon, which escaped and fled to the woods, where it terrorized a couple ignorant villagers, which never actually hurt anyone.
    Then it probably died in winter and was never found.

    This is a chacma baboon, and they're from South Africa, so probably wasn't one of them. But there's a lot of decently big ones from the northern parts of Africa.

          okay true as that may be, the dingo population arrived almost ten thousand years ago and helped refill some of the macropredator niches that humans wiped out on the continent, not to mention that killing them now is foolhardy at best since they're a completely acclimated and essential part of the ecosystem now.

            >the dingo population arrived almost ten thousand years ago
            No. Try 3000 years ago. And not "a population". A dribble of individual dogs from the small number of Asian fishermen's boats that occasionally landed on the top end of what is now the Northern Territory. Dingoes spread like cane toads after that.

            >helped refill some of the macropredator niches that humans wiped out
            No. Humans might have intentionally or unintentionally exterminated big predators like Thylacoleo, but they also exterminated all the big herbivores.
            What dingoes (Canis familiaris) did -- when they were introduced long after that -- was exterminate the Thylacine and other small-medium predators.
            And now you adore them for "filling the niche" that they created for themselves by exterminating all the native predators! Not that it's the dingoes' fault, of course. They're just dumb dogs, like any other dumb dog.
            >killing them now is foolhardy at best since they're ... an essential part of the ecosystem now.
            To the extent that dingoes kill feral cats and other invasive species, this is true. But if that's your rationale, there is no reason to distinguish between a "purebred" dingo and any other feral dog. They are the same species and exactly the same thing.
            There's nothing special about dingoes. Travel through Southeast Asia and you see them everywhere. They're just a basic stray street dog.
            Again, none of this is the dingoes' fault. But they're not an Australian native animal, and they caused the extinction of Australian native species such as the Thylacine on the mainland. The only reason that the Thylacine survived in Tasmania before whitey deliberately exterminated it was because the dingo never made it to Tasmania, just like Tojo never made it to Darwin.

          People mistake animals all the time, not to mention that as an ambush predator a lion/big cat would take pains not to be seen until it was too late. If the only predator you know of is a wolf, you're going to think in terms of a wolf. "When you hear hoofbeats you think of horses, not zebras."

                Don't ask me! I mostly eat fish and dairy too!
                There are huge problems with seafood, from trawlers and megatrawlers that destroy areas of ocean floor the size of actual countries, and which catch and drown dolphins, whales, turtles and anything else unlucky enough to get in the way.
                And the farming of salmon and barramundi (aka Asian sea bass) in huge, inhumanely crowded cages in the sea is possibly even worse.
                The conditions in the cages are cruel, and they breed diseases and parasites that are then passed on to wild fish.
                And the huge cages crammed with fish attract predators such as seals, so the c**ts who own these companies make people throw grenades into the water to kill/scare the seals away. Many of the seals who survive suffer injuries such as ruptured eardrums and internal organs from the grenade attacks of the fish farmers, and many of those seals die slowly in great pain from their injuries or they survive but are deaf. And then they probably get fatally injured by grenades later on.
                Dairy I don't know about, but I'm sure it's bad.

                Depends on the farm. You can absolutely have a setup that allows a cow to choose when and if it gets milked; voluntary milking is fairly common even, whether it’s a cow walking from the pasture into the robot pen when the pressure of milk aches or (on hobby-sized farms) begging a trusted human caretaker to do it manually for relief. Cows that don’t want to be milked or that are in too much pain from not being milked in time to cooperate are both a massive pain in the ass, will often kill and maim people, and no one wants to deal with any of those scenarios (sometimes the people in charge don’t give a shit though, and that’s where the disgusting horror stories come from). If people aren’t stealing all the milk and left its calf with it, it’ll steal more calves if she can because its own calf can’t drink it all. The poor things have been bred to overproduce milk when healthy enough and usually are eager to get rid of it.

                I exaggerate a bit about the calf stealing. Most breeds are often perfectly fine with sharing calves, and it helps when mom just isn’t making much herself, it’s just particularly dominant overly-protective c**ty cows that don’t let the other moms be nursed on and bodily separate them from a calf.

    The last hyenas in Europe became extinct about 10,000 years ago. The most recent ice age changed the climate so much that they couldn't thrive in the new ecosystems, starting about 21,000 years ago. It is speculated that humans were a contributing factor. So, it's pretty much impossible that France would have any stories about hyenas from Medieval times through today, and probably nothing for thousands of years before that. Whatever it was, it was something else.

    There do appear to be some stories about hyenas in Greece and Turkey during the last 1,000 years, with some reportedly from the 18th & 19th century, but that seems to be about as close as they ever got to France after becoming extinct 10,000 years ago.

    Leaving the possibility that stories from the Greece/Turkey region may have been told in France, even though they didn't actually take place in France. Due to the climate & terrain, the Balkans seem to be a natural barrier that prevented them from ever migrating back into Europe from Asia again.

      Why can’t hyenas adapt to ecosystems? There’s hyenas at my city zoo that live outside all winter and don’t give af.

    Eitheir a really big wolf, a big wolf-dog hybrids or a hyena.
    Also, some of the murders could be from a psycho larping as a werewolf.

    it was just a wolf or a wolf-dog. Possibly a whole pack or multiple separate individuals.
    People tend to exaggerate, even supposedly reputable sources. The "mystery" is just the exaggeration of people

      Yeah like

      Looks like every other wolf-like creature that was terrorizing France. Maybe there’s something deeper here…

      says, France in particular has a lot of wolf legends that likely sprung up from fear of them, these things were threats to people and their livelihoods, I don’t think it’s more complicated than that

      This. Even regular wolves are way bigger than the average person would expect.

      Very interesting thought. Is there any evidence of such animals in France? Anywhere in Europe? Especially, they'd have to be recent enough to be part of human memory & legend, so maybe 5000 years or less. 500-1000 years would seem even more reasonable, but 50,000 or 150,000 years or more doesn't seem reasonable at all.

      The last Neanderthals died out between 35,000 and 45,000 years ago, for reference, which is the same time frame that modern homosexual sapiens sapiens entered Europe and displaced them (a 5,000 to 10,000 year overlap). Just in case someone wants to argue about "racial memories," there isn't enough Neanderthal DNA in modern humans to account for that, so whatever the critter was would have to be something modern Europeans encountered since then.

      It's got something of a wolverine look to it around the face & claws, for speculation. The tail's a bit of a puzzle.

        It's possible a spotted hyena just escaped from a nearby zoo, those guys can grow coats and are huge with a really powerful bite compared to European wolves so that's what I went with.

        There is no need for it to be endemic, hyenas had been captured and kept in the menageries of European aristocrats since the days of Nero, certainly it wouldn't be amiss for some decadent French nobleman to have had a hyena that escaped and terrorized the countryside.
