Is the Beast of Gévaudan back?

At the gates of Aubrac, on the way to Santiago de Compostela, the corpse of a hiker, brutally mutilated and decapitated, is discovered. The disappearance of part of his belongings makes it difficult to identify the victim. The crime was soon attributed to a canine of an unknown species close to the wolf. The predator remains elusive and continues to attack Compostela walkers. For some people living near the path, the beast of Gévaudan seems to have never really left the area.

Coming out of the woods, has the mysterious creature believed to have been missing for 250 years returned to the region? Could these murders be linked to the reappearance of wild wolves in Lozère or to the escape of a few specimens from a nearby animal park?
