wolfmanIn Argentinien feiern sie derzeit das hundertjährige Bestehen einer Anti-Werwolf-Tradition, in der siebte Söhne oder Töchter automatisch Patenkinder des Präsidenten werden, und zudem ein Stipendium für sämtliche Bildungswege bis zum 21. Lebensjahr erhalten. Argentina's got some fine, very smart Werewolves right there!

[update] Der Guardian meint Nope: „according to Argentine historian Daniel Balmaceda, there is no link between the two traditions. 'The local myth of the lobizón is not in any way connected to the custom that began over 100 years ago by which every seventh son (or seventh daughter) born in Argentina becomes godchild to the president,' he said.“
