if werewolves were found to exist.. would they be labeled people or animals? if they were labeled animals would peta care/protect about them? and would people skin them to make fur coats? (this is if they never went back to human form after they were skinned) and by werewolves i mean the ones in the movies and not the actual werewolves syndrome called hypertrichosis.. yep i know im crazy.. but are any of you guys crazy enough to hold the answers?? hahaha

(1) they would be their own species. (2) they'd run PETA in their human forms to protect themselves. (3) they're coats are too rough & shaggy to make a nice looking coat or anything from. (4) yep, I am that crazy.

I like this answer. it's the same one I'd make. I am totally that crazy. After all, I married a man I was pretty sure would turn into a werewolf when he hit 21. He didn't, but he's still pretty wolfy looking.

Has he hidden the real silverware? Maybe you just haven't caught him yet.

If we take it by the classic myths and they would be people turning into werewolves only when its full moon, then... yes they would be people :D So there shouldn't be no problem as it would be more of a "syndrome" or disease that manifests in humans. If we take it by more recent adaptations (like White Wolf's World of Darkness) then they would be some kind of supernatural creatures and would somehow be labeled as animals as you cannot communicate with them by simple signs or language, if you can find a specimen (even though in later series we find out that they're actually human shape shifters so you can't actually label them as mere creatures). I for one would protect them, even though the thought of having 15 feet ferocious wolves in our woods would be terrifying.

Ah it wouldn't be so bad, I've got a small pack of wolves in the back yard now... One big one would be easier to handle than several.

I don't believe they actually exist but hey lets have fun aways..in this series i am reading there are actually two types of wereanimal. There are the type who are human that take animal form and then there are the animals who take human form. It would make sense for peta to protect the ones that are animals that take human form. Either way they are strong magical creatures and i would like to see a mere human try to skin one.

They are very good and i have most of them...if you lived closer and i was insured that i would get them back i would let you borrow mine. And don't knock romances...paranormal romances is my specialty.

I think they would still be classified as human with a werewolf disorder as most of the time they appear as human. Right? They are only a werewolf when the moon is full? Knowing our society, there might even start to be werewolf foundations and help lines. Fundraisers and social awareness campaigns. We would see talkshows with topics like, "you're a werewolf, but I still love you...". Ok, I'm getting carried away here, but you wanted crazy...lol.

That's a very interesting questions. I would think human because they are human for a majority of their life, only in animal form during full moons and all. Peta probably would try to protect them, but they tend to go overboard on things. Not that I believe in animal testing or cruelty or anything, but I wouldn't stalk people, threaten them, or slash their tires because that's their job and/or beliefs. I don't agree with it, but I'm not going to stoop to that level. On fur coats, they would be hard to get because they are such dangerous creatures so they would be very expensive I guess...and the poor person that was sacrificed for it...makes me sad. Very interesting discussion! Very thought-provoking!

that is a good question, I have no idea but my guess would be that they would be considered humanoid, so they would have humain rights I guess I don't know.
