In 18th century France a rash of attacks by a reportedly wolf-like creature gave way to a long saga of expensive expeditions and royally appointed huntsmen. This animal, known now as the Beast of Gévaudan, has been the subject of much speculating and bizarre hypothesizing— while I am myself a skeptic by nature, that's what draws me to stories like this. 
The clever, offbeat narratives and aura of mystery is what I love about legends and cryptozoology, even if I only put stock in more scientifically sound explanations.
