That man is Julius Vinaigrette III, who was long suspected of being a member of the subversive revolutionary group, Free Isermno Now (FIN). The group are responsible for the rash of vandalism attacks on public monuments. Although Mr. Vinaigrette was not available for comment, hospital workers tell us that he appeared delusional, claiming he suffered the bite when a SWAT team with three attack dogs kicked down the door to his home a week ago. He evaded capture for several days, until the worsening state of his injuries compelled him to seek treatment at the hospital. Authorities have refuted these statements, asserting that only two dogs were used in last week's raid. Mr. Vinaigrette's condition, and whereabouts, remain unknown.
Isermno's ATLAS (Anomaly Terror Level Advisory System) reports a code orange / high risk of werewolf incidents for the foreseeable future. Residents are advised to stock up on silver bullets.
Ever since news of the werewolfism pandemic went public, police have arrested several others thought to have been infected. The authorities have not yet announced what they make of the coincidence that everyone arrested on suspicion of being a werewolf is also a member of the FIN terrorist group.
