Pricolici

Like the Strigoi, the Pricolici are undead monsters but they always take the form of a giant wolf. Violent, murderous men are said to return from the grave as Pricolici to continue harming living people. Even in modern times, Romanians claim to have been attacked by abnormally large wolves that were, indeed, Pricolici. In a country that still has the largest population of canis lupus in Europe, it’s not hard to guess how this mythical creature sprang to life.
