In Russia becoming a werewolf is easy. All that’s needed to shape-shift into an Oborot “one transformed” is a magic incantation and to find a cut down tree in the forest.
The tree stump would be stabbed with the copper knife and circled as the person said the spell. Once the spell was said the person had to jump over the stabbed stump three times. He then ran further into the forest and wolf form.

Good one. Do they sell copper knives at Williams and Sonoma? Just curious, no evil intent here at all.😙
Does the legend say how you turn back to human?
I could probably find it in one of my reference books if I looked long enough. A lot of times the antidote isn’t given so it isn’t attempted.
You would come back to the stump and jump over it again

Thank you. 😀
Ouch! I’m definitely going to dig out the tree stump in my garden…
