Upon returning to the chateau with his gruesome prize, he opened the pouch to show the nobleman evidence of his encounter. What they discovered was not a paw at all, in fact, the pouch contained what looked to be a feminine hand bearing an elegant gold ring. The nobleman recognised the ring and sent the hunter away. The nobleman then went looking for his wife. When he came upon her in the kitchen, he found her nursing a wounded arm. He removed the bandage only to find that her hand had been cut off.

How to Spot a Werewolf
As with witches, finding a werewolf largely seems to be a matter of looking hard enough. Some of the warning signs, according to the world's myths, are:
Born on the 25th of December
Eyebrows join in the middle
Index and middle fingers are of the same length
Love of rare or raw meat
Hairs on the palms of the hands
Hair on the inside of the skin (that seems like a tough one to check!)
Will change back to a human if you throw a piece of iron or steel over its head when in animal form.
