Teen Wolves Descend Upon San Antonio High Schools
By Joe Conger / KENS 5

[VIDEO - See Also YouTube Video Below]
<a href="http://www.youtube.com/v/Q77sJT8O56E" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/v/Q77sJT8O56E</a>

School's out at John Marshal High School, and exiting the facility are your typical cliques: cheerleaders, nerds, jocks and Goths… and werewolves?

"We're not to be feared,” said Argus, his ghost-white, eyes staring at the camera.
Argus is one of several members of the wolf pack, one of several packs scattered about San Antonio's north side.
 
His friend Katze Lupus Burn added, "We're not a gang at all. Gangs are like posers. They just want attention, that's why they go along tagging stuff. The pack? We're a family. We go to each other for our problems."
 
The fascination with werewolves dates back to the 19-30's, with popular movies starring Lon Chaney, Jr. More recently, movies like Van Helsing and the Twilight series have captured the attention of teenagers. They may not be mutating from man to wolf, but Northside school district counselors warn these teens are experiencing transformations of their own: from childhood to adulthood.
 
Northside School District counselor Dr. Deborah Healy said, “Young people are looking to define their identities, sometimes to come together and affiliate around a theme or an idea, just really to belong, that sense of belonging."
 
And a sense of belonging is just what this group says they're after.
 
"You get friends. You get a place where you belong. You're pretty much accepted to where you are, who you are, what you are," said Deikitsen Wolfram Lupus, the unofficial leader of the pack at Brandeis High. He says he's got some wolf in him, howling sometimes to get out.
 
"We just like hang out here, we're just like another family. This is our second home, basically," added Kit, dressed in pink with a touch of leather and chains.
 
And you couldn't help but notice the eyes. And the fangs. It's a style, we're told. And nothing more.
 
Friend Guerrero continued, "We're not trying to be intimidating, we're not trying to be menacing. We're just trying to live our daily lives and hang out. You know? We're teenagers and we just want to have fun."
 
And they gather attention, too. One of the wolf pack, whom many consider the "alpha dog," received some international acclaim when a neighbor's dog went missing, only to have its skull found in the possession of 18-year old, Wolfie Blackheart. It created a firestorm on the internet, and was San Antonio's first glimpse into the world of these transformed teens.
 
Northside officials confirm wolf packs do exist in at least half a dozen schools, with anywhere from 12 to 20 werewolves in each. Dress codes are strictly enforced, NISD officials say. The wolf pack isn't allowed the tails, chains, or anything else that negatively affects the learning environment.
 
Brandeis head counselor Bill Hill said, “They walk down the hallways and meld into the fabric of the school and don't seem to be troublesome in the school environment."
 
Northside counselors say it's extreme expression. Dei says it's something deeper than violating the school's dress-code.
 
"I don't believe anyone is just human. Everyone's got something else mixed in with them. They just have to look inside themselves and find out what it is."
 
Dei's got his own leash he wears. His mom has a leash on him to: Pam Manley keeps Dei tethered to family, his chores and his studies.
 
"As soon as he walks in the door, he is supposed to take out the fangs, lose the lenses and put his hair back," Manley said. "They're good kids. And it takes some courage to stand up and be who you want to be and be able to express yourself in this way."

Warning: Teen Werewolves Spotted In San Antonio
By Allie Townsend on May 24, 2010


[VIDEO - Same As Above Article]

This reeks of Stephanie Meyer.

Apparently, Texas teens are calling themselves werewolves now. (Fantastic.) The kids, wearing canine-ish contacts, fangs, clip-on tails and more emo-pride than lives in Edward Cullen's hair, belong to "wolf packs." They howl, bark and just hang out like normal kids do, man. But they're werewolves.

One mother says she's proud of her son. (Yes, that is a boy.) And well, hey, great for her. My biggest question: Where are the vampires and when do I get to see a rumble?

Self-Described Wolf Woman Severed Lost Dog's Head
By Brian Chasnoff - Express-News
Web Posted: 01/27/2010 1:02 CST



Sarah Rodriguez, also known as Wolfie Blackheart, with Winrey, a wolf/dog hybrid.

Wolfie Blackheart is not an ordinary 18-year-old.

She believes she is a wolf — technically, a werewolf — and so she wears a tail. She also wears a harness in case someone special wants to drag her around.

And last week, she used a pocketknife in her kitchen to decapitate a dog — already dead, according to Wolfie — that had been missing since Jan. 5.

“I severed the head, boiled the head,” Wolfie said. “People make the mistake of hacking the spine, which will fracture the skull.”

She added, “You also have to put (the head) outside for the brains to leak out.”

Before the teenager carted the cranium to the woods, someone held it up and snapped a photograph of it inside her Northwest Side house — a shot that ended up on the Internet.

Within days, the photo had spurred an aggressive animal cruelty investigation by Animal Care Services and the San Antonio Police Department.

It also inspired at least one so-called troll — a savvy, anonymous Internet user — to hack into Wolfie’s personal accounts, engage in amateur sleuthing and issue threats to those deemed responsible for the dog’s fate.

Bearing the brunt of these attacks, Wolfie — born Sarah Rodriguez — says she’s guilty of nothing more than an abiding love for taxidermy.

“I would never kill a canine,” she said. “I am a canine.”

Lisa Rodriguez, Wolfie’s mom, said she supports her daughter’s career goal.

“I say, ‘Don’t sever heads in front of me,' ” she said. “She usually does it in the woods.”

Wolfie cares lovingly for two huskies in the backyard.

Her room is a cluttered den plastered with posters of anime characters and howling wolves. On a high shelf, she collects heads, including the cleaned skulls of a coyote, ram and wild boar.

When a car ran over Pixie — her “best friend” — Wolfie cut off the chihuahua’s tiny head, cleaned it and placed it in a jar.

“I get requests on cats and stuff,” she said.

Wolfie also has collected more than a dozen swords, including a “two-handled war sword” made of carbon steel and a katana blade from Japan.

She said investigators knocked on her door Friday with a search warrant.

“When they saw her room, they had to call every single cop to her room,” said her mother, who lives in the home. “The spots on the wall, they thought it was blood. It’s catsup. The kids had a fight. They’re teenagers.”

She added, “Wolfie does have a bloody refrigerator, but they’re all dead animals.”

Crime scene investigators swabbed the walls. Authorities confiscated the dog’s head. No one could find the body.

‘The sweetest dog’

A friend dropped off a stray dog last year at the Northwest Side house of Kathy Silva, and the mother of four wasn’t enthralled.

“Don’t get too used to him,” she told her daughters.

But the black-flecked chow mix won the family members’ hearts. They named him Rigsby, after the road on which he was found.

“He started being real protective of the kids and our house,” Silva said. “He was the sweetest dog ever.”

Her 14-year-old daughter promised to care for the new pet. She even offered her own birthday money to pay for the dog’s shots.

But on Jan. 5, Rigsby went missing from the family’s backyard.

Two weeks later, on Jan. 20, a teenager — likely a troll — stopped Silva near her home. Clutching a crumpled piece of paper, he told her he was conducting a survey on dogs in the neighborhood.

“We used to have a dog,” Silva told him, “but he ran away.”

That same day, a neighbor showed Silva a Web site with the photo of a dog’s severed head. That site and others included inflammatory and convoluted theories about who had done it.

“My heart pretty much sank,” Silva said, “because when I saw that picture, I said, ‘That’s Rigsby.’”

She called police.

Investigators studied the Web site, noting a post from a user who wrote that the dog had been hit by a car and “it would be fun to desecrate the corpse,” according to an affidavit for a search warrant.

Authorities also noted the criminal history of Wolfie, whose name appeared on the site.

A dropout since ninth grade, Wolfie walked onto a campus in the Northside ISD a year or two ago with a “large curved blade” that “looks like it’s used to cut someone’s head off,” according to the affidavit.

She was arrested and charged with possession of the weapon.

“I can explain that,” Wolfie’s mother said. “That was a skinning knife.”

‘Road kill’

Wolfie has Tourette’s syndrome, which causes her to yip — a result of head trauma suffered in a car crash about a decade ago, her mother said.

And she’s into a lifestyle that involves bondage, which necessitates a dog collar.

“The collar means I belong to someone,” she said. “It’s not a fashion statement.”

She’s also a member of a “wolf pack.”

“I’m a wolf, and I have a group of other friends who are canines,” she said.

Wolfie said a friend called her last week and asked her to decapitate a dog that had been hit by a car.

“He was gone. His tongue was dried,” she said. “The cause of death, I’m almost 100 percent sure, was blunt trauma.”

Wolfie placed the animal on her kitchen counter and severed the windpipe, tendons and spine. She said a friend photographed the head while she was boiling the water that would melt off the skin.

“I wouldn’t have allowed” the photo, Wolfie said.

Her friends left with the body, Wolfie said, and she put the head in the woods.

Lisa Norwood, an ACS spokeswoman, said the investigation is ongoing. It’s not illegal to cut off the head of a dead dog, she added.

“You can prove that a number of ways forensically,” Norwood said.

At home, Wolfie and her mother are dealing with online smears, threatening phone calls and obscene text messages.

“The Internet’s gone crazy,” Lisa Rodriguez said. “We thought somebody was on our roof last night.”

But she said the wrath is misdirected.

“Wolfie would never harm an animal,” she said. “She likes road kill.”

I'm just going to say to let them be who they want to be. I personally find it disrespectful to go around decapitating dead animals but as long as she's not decapitating alive ones it doesn't seem to be such a big deal. As for what they wear...well...I don't go around wearing fangs and contacts because I'm a vampire...but whatever they want to do who am I to judge? The therians I know however, are nothing like this and would laugh at these "wolf packs".

As a therian, and more over, as a wolf, This is horrifying. I mean, let the kids be whoever they want, but this is almost painful to watch. This is not how I, as a therian, act. Or how any other therian I know of acts. I feel these kids have seen something on the internet and are copying it. I can't say I don't like the outfit, but it makes me take them less seriously for sure.

Some vamps do do the contacts and many do the fangs.  im more disturbed with the clearly emo look, and the youth culture that i see copied looks of punk and goth.

they say they are were wolves or therians . some of these statements do not make any sense ,  otherkin claims . are a little different ,  but many people say thay are therians.  that would be the most generic of terms saying they are a animal, as man would say they are weres that could be more correct as were means man.  like some call them selves Lycan after that underworld series of movies.
 simply meaning wolf.
i would say a were wolf would be some one who shifts... i would say spiritual shifting kinda sounds bogus. if theres pysical shifting it would be something provable.

therian thropy like lycan thropy . meaning animal man and wolf man . to say therian is not quite right, it would make more sense for them to pick their animal type or totem and say that .

the worst part is these Showy packs, kinda make it look like they are a bunch of wannabes. this is as bad as the kids forming clans and houses with out the first concept of what it is.
I will admit that these other kin are very new to me. and i am not sure how that really matters in the scheme of things. but as we might say in the vampire world.  of p;d . some one older should make it a point to let them know what s up...

if they are indeed otherkin or wolves they seem a bit too open for it. a bit showy. they say they don't want attention they should not dress for attention. they say they do not want to be feared, the pack mentality or grouping  makes them suspiciously  a bit more than a family.
some parents let them have a bit too much freedom. and some of these kids seem to have a lot more money to waste on junk than we used to when i was that age.
but i would like to think it takes a little more than them just wearing some collar and a tale , (also kinda disturbing that they mention the bondage thing so early on.
lots of moral issues.
some would say the need to form packs or "families "  might mark them as having poor family life, With vampires , you may not get the instruction that they most often it seems no longer can get at home. they need houses and others to help mentor them.
(so few bloodline families left most seem to awaken with no knowledge that there were vampires in their family. skipping generations etc. )
those of us who are older should always be prepared to help offer advice  to the youth, while many do not want to be stuck mentoring anyone else .  ok its late time for bed

i agree any THERIAN who would willingly dismember anything that was once alive is cracked in the head.personalley, what tf HAPPENED to the name therian?nwith this video its like saying were all rabid animals running around, and be far from me to say it, but i was taught different than this....... simple minded I WANNA BE A HORROR HOUND FURRY crap Angry i was taught therians respect and REVERE nature, not destroy it and desecrate remains of a brother/sister. freaks. call it harsh and maybe i am but this? this just makes us scapegoats for horror speculative analysis and gives CHILDREN an excuse to be violent. no therian i have ever met believes such. Amen wolf brothers and sisters.

I think they're adorable little things, going around with their little tails stuck to their butts.

The fad will probably blow over.

As for taxidermy, or cleaning bones for preservation, it doesn't bother me, and yes, I am therian.  I think that the girl made a bad choice in deciding to mess around with the corpse of another person's pet, rather than sticking to wild animals that were killed on the road.  But, bad choices are pretty much par for the course for teenagers.

The idea of 'desecrating' a corpse is one that doesn't compute with me--it's dead, soul is gone, now it's just raw materials.  You can eat it, fix it up and wear it, mount it on a shelf, whatever you want.  Doesn't matter at that point.  I might feel a little funny dealing with the corpse of a human or a wolf, but other animals, not really.

I haven't seen any evidence any of these teen wolf kiddos are violent.  The videos suggest quite the contrary.

Unfortunately lately some otherkin groups are exposing themselves including Vampires which sucks (no pun) for those who wanted it all to remain in the shadows...

Well, that's progress for you.  It's much easier to let the cat out of the bag than to keep it in.  It's not as though the OVC is hidden away in some password-protected, paranoid corner of the web where admittance is only via recommendation by a close personal friend.

If you're posting here, obviously you don't want to hide all that badly, lol.

Ok I have been dying to post on this but I just got my accont so here it is.


The people in this so called "Pack" are no where near what we true Wolves are like. The girl Wolfie is fathest from it I'm afraid to say. The leader of the so called "Pack" has a good outlook on it but unfortunatly is lacking in a lot of areas.

 Grin Goths with tails muahhahah. Its more easier to put lens on your eyes then start running or start training something...
I'm a fairy. Where is my fairy wings?  Grin
Free runners (parkour) look like other kind, because they are push the limits. This is the great quality of humanity, not a bunch of cheap cosmetic changes.
In distance of time I can only see the missed opportunities of my goth teenage period. Nerds become more successful when they become adults. This kids waste their time (time is the most precious thing) to pretend to be something that they can't be.
by the way harness on the wolf...... what a miss sense.

LOL, there is no need to rate them on how 'good' they are at being therian.  Most likely a lot of them aren't really therian at all, and the few that are probably don't understand the difference between themselves and the ones who think it's all metaphorical.

If you are therian, you're therian, and that is all there is to it. 

These kids are having fun, their ideals aren't horrible, they look cute the way they're dressed up, and I see no reason not to be fond of them for it.  It's better than having the therian kids isolated, after all.  Now, the therian kids have other kids to hang out with--they may not be the same, but at least they aren't being ostracized.  Overall, I think it's beneficial for the therian kids to be in these groups--much more so than being alone.

I know I would've rather hung out with a bunch of other kids playing wolf than just be alone and try to hide the fact I am one.  Good for them, I hope they continue having fun.

I've seen this....also heard word that the boy from the first vid, the 'leader,' committed suicide, along with several others. This is saddening but indeed very interesting. I don't understand why wolfie, if she really does truly believe she is a werewolf, would harm--let alone kill--an animal of her kin.

Ok. I was totally misinformed. Sorry. I know now she did not kill the dog, she was merely asked to behead it.

I talked to a couple people who knew him, and apparently the reason he committed suicide was the rise in bullying after the news reports. Damn shame. Seemed like a good guy.
