Werewolf Loup Garou Stamp | | i love WEREWOLVES
In 1990 Canada issued a set of commemorative stamps honoring legendary creatures in the folklore of their country. Of the four special stamps that were created, one of them was of a werewolf stamp (le loup garou). The belief in the Canadian werewolf (Le loup garou) actually originates from French folklore. Legends say that le loup garou roamed the countryside at night. One main difference between a traditional werewolf and the Canadian loup garou, was that le loup garou could sometimes take the form of animals other than a wolf. Based on the legends, Canada created a pretty cool werewolf stamp which depicts a fearsome-looking werewolf in completely wolf form with mouth open as if threatening someone or something. He is standing in front of a full moon in what looks to be an empty field in the countryside. Canadian myths and legends run deep, and in addition to the werewolf stamp, Canada honored three more legends in their stamps series including a stamp honoring the bigfoot (sasquatch)
