In Wolf-Month, a Man & His Dog (1826)

"According to Veistegan (Restitution of Decayed Intelligence 4to. 1628 p. 59) the Saxons called this month Wolfmonat or Wolf-month because the wolves of our ancient forests, impelled by hunger at this season, were wont to prowl and attack man himself; the inferior animals on whom they usually preyed having retired or perished from the inclemency of the weather."
