The tale of the rougarou is a common legend across French Louisiana. Some people call the monster rougarou; others refer to it as the loup garou. The rougarou legend has been spread for many generations, either directly from French settlers to Louisiana (New France) or via the French Canadian immigrants centuries ago.

In the Cajun legends, the creature is said to prowl the swamps around Acadiana and Greater New Orleans, and possibly the fields or forests of the regions. The rougarou most often is described as a creature with a human body and the head of a wolf or dog, similar to the werewolf legend.

Often the story-telling has been used to inspire fear and obedience. One such example is stories that have been told by elders to persuade Cajun children to behave.

According to another variation, the wolf-like beast will hunt down and kill Catholics who do not follow the rules of Lent.

Only a witch can make a rougarou—either by turning into a wolf herself, or by cursing others with lycanthropy.
