The Morbach Monster Legend has it that Morbach, Rhineland-Palatinate was the last place a werewolf was killed. A single candle still burns in the village as a reminder, and a warning. One night in 1988, this candle went out and a huge wolf figure was soon spotted, standing upright at a US airbase, having scaled a three-metre high fence. He stood, staring at the soldiers then returned to the forest. The candle was re-lit, and has never gone out since.
