Why didn't he just use a Wolfbane Potion as a child instead of all that story with the Shrieking Shack?? So that he couldn't harm other students and go somewhere in the forest?
- Because, I believe, the potion wasn't invented until after Remus had already finished school. You can read the article here. -- 20:12, November 26, 2012 (UTC)
I have a different question: why do the werewolfs have to bee aggressive? And hurt them selfs? And why does company with animal help them? By the way, the answer above me is correct. It was invented after mid-1970..
