The Beast of Bailey Downs was a werewolf that terrorized the rural community of Bailey Downs and was the suspect in the murder of several of the community's dogs. Playing a role in Ginger Snaps, the Beast was the werewolf who infected Ginger Fitzgerald.
History[edit | edit source]
Origin[edit | edit source]
The origins of the Beast are unknown, but he was an infected male who transformed. Based on the lore from Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, it was bound to happen that the Fitzgerald sisters were cursed to be inflicted with lycanthropy; however, it is unknown how the male first got infected, whether through another werewolf of unknown origin, werewolves that somehow survived the events from Canada in the early 19th century, or through supernatural effects.
Fitzgerald sisters[edit | edit source]
The Beast attacked Ginger in the woods while the Fitzgerald sisters were at the park, biting Ginger and spreading its infection.
Death[edit | edit source]
As the two girls fled from the monster, the Beast chased them across the road where it was struck and killed by Sam. Sam gets out of his van and examines the werewolf's body to see what he hit.
Appearance[edit | edit source]
The Beast had little resemblance to a human, with the except of an "uncircumcised penis" as observed by Sam, proving that it was a male who was infected. The Beast had large paws, was almost hairless on its body, a sharp snout, pointed eyes, and a wrinkled face.
Significance[edit | edit source]
The Beast killed several dogs in the Bailey Downs community. Somehow, it avoided being seen by the town's inhabitants, and was nicknamed the "Beast of Bailey Down"s for its terrifying howls and its cruel killing spree.
