The Weretiger is a type of Werewolf from India, Malaysia, Borneo, China and Japan. In Java, Indonesia the Were-Tiger is a person who possesses a miniature ‘sarong’ which is a small skirt. When they put this on, the ‘sarong’ grows larger and turns yellow and black. The person is then transformed into a tiger where he or she must find another victim to devour to release his or her soul.
In Malaysia the Were-Tiger consumes livestock especially chickens. If a man vomits feathers it is believed that he is a Were-Tiger and would be given an emetic.
