About the Rougarou

Down the bayou, mama and daddy use the Rougarou to make kids behave. Cajun parents tell their children that the Rougarou is going to get them if they don’t act right. The word “rougarou” represents an alternate pronunciation and spelling of the original French “loup-garou.” Both words are used down the bayou. The rougarou is often described as a creature with the head of a wolf or dog and a human body, like a werewolf. The rougarou legend has been handed down for many generations, either directly from French settlers to Louisiana or from the French Canadian immigrants
