La mise en tourisme de la « Bête du Gévaudan » en Gévaudan

Abstract : This research focuses on the place of a traditional historical element, here the Beast of Gévaudan, in the development of the tourist identity of a rural territory. Since then, much research has been done to try to discover the true identity of this Beast which has devoured more than a hundred people. Concerning the place of the Beast of Gévaudan in tourism promotion and consumption, research is ultimately scarce. Likewise, the importance of its monopolization in the rehabilitation of the wolf in the territory has never really been analyzed. Even if legends and tales have very often been studied in the way they present the lupine species, the story of the Beast of Gévaudan, while it is used in certain mediations, has not been the subject of research. For its aspects of both tourism and mediation, it seemed important to me to see the place that the Beast still occupies today in Altiligérien and Lozérien territory.
