77 Why would local authorities and their peasant compaÂ�triÂ�ots ignore conventional wisdom regarding the dangers of wolves and embrace, however Â�provisionally, an emerging hypothesis about a mysterious creature—a monster—with fearsome abilities? The psychologically disorienting effect of living through a killing spree cannot be discounted, and the sense of anxiety prevailing among the beast’s opponents undoubtedly created a space where wild suspicions could flourÂ�ish. The absence of a fixed, reliable representation of the attacker or attackers not only encouraged the mind’s conflation of different incidents into one frightening phenomenon but also placed more weight on the terrified testimonies of individuals who had had fleeting encounters with a dangerous predator.

It advanced with sparkling eyes and an air of assurance that would have frightened me had I not been armed. ” The monkey had apparently achieved impressive dimensions. “This was a terrifying animal. Its tail was long, like a lion’s. ”58 The characteristics of Forbin’s monkey overlapped with the emerging profile of the beast—the tail, the elongated figÂ�ure, the “sparkling” eyes (the rich semantic field of the adjective étincelant clearly straddled the realms of natural hisÂ�tory and sorcery).
