Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm 1. A soldier related the following story, which is said to have happened to his grandfather. The latter, the grandfather, had gone into the forest to cut wood with a kinsman and a third man. People suspected that there was something not quite right about this third man, although no one could say exactly what it was.
The three finished their work and were tired, whereupon the third man suggested that they sleep a little. And that is what they did. They all laid down on the ground, but the grandfather only pretended to sleep, keeping his eyes open a crack.
The third man looked around to see if the others were asleep, and when he believed this to be so, he took off his belt or, as others tell the story, put on a belt and turned into a wolf.
However, such a werewolf does not look exactly like a natural wolf, but somewhat different. Then he ran to a nearby meadow where a young foal was grazing, attacked it, and ate it, including skin and hair.
Afterward he returned, put his belt back on or took it offand laid down, as before, in human form. A little later they all got up together and made their way toward home.
Just as they reached the town gate, the third man complained that he had a stomachache.
The grandfather secretly whispered in his ear: A woman had taken on the form of a werewolf and had attacked the herd of a shepherd, whom she hated, causing great damage. However, the shepherd wounded the wolf in the hip with an ax blow, and it crawled into the brush.
The shepherd followed, thinking that he could finish it off, but there he found a woman using a piece of cloth torn from her dress to stop the blood gushing from a wound.
With them they had a boy of twelve years whom the devil turned into a raven whenever they were tearing apart and eating their prey.

Known everywhere by the name "the Old Man," he would often show up without notice in the villages and offer his services, which he performed to the satisfaction of the country people. He was most often engaged to herd sheep. It happened that a cute spotted lamb was born in a herd belonging to a shepherd named Melle from Neindorf.
The stranger asked the shepherd repeatedly and fervently to give it to him, but the shepherd refused. On shearing day Melle engaged the Old Man to help out. When he returned he found everything in order; all the work had been done, but neither the Old Man nor the spotted lamb were there.
For a long time no one heard anything about the Old Man. Finally one day he unexpectedly appeared before Melle, who was grazing his sheep in the Katten Valley.
He called out sneeringly: Then suddenly the stranger changed shape and sprang at him as a werewolf. The shepherd took fright, but his dogs attacked the wolf with fury. Pursued, it ran through forest and valley until it reached the vicinity of Eggenstedt.
Here the dogs surrounded him. The shepherd called out: But the shepherd furiously attacked him with his stick, when suddenly a sprouting thorn bush stood before him. But the vengeful shepherd did not spare him, hacking away at the branches instead. The stranger once again turned himself into a human and begged for his life.
