Wererabbits in Myth, Legend, and Folklore
Werewolves are well known in myths, folklore, literature, and popular fiction but there is also a lesser-known history of wererabbits appearing in many cultures dating back to Medieval times and even earlier.
Wererabbits, like their werewolf counterparts, are essentially shapeshifters. Both werewolves and wererabbits do not necessarily change at the full moon but tend to change either side of the full moon or at times of emotional stress.
Before the invention of firearms, silver arrows were used to kill shapeshifting demons such as werewolves and wererabbits. Silver, with its history of mystical properties and associations with the moon, was traditionally the only substance capable of killing a werewolf.
The truth of all this may be disputed however one thing cannot be disputed, legends and myths of shapeshifters abound.
