The word Cynocephaly means "dog-headed". A known race of dog-headed people has been around since antiquity. They're now confined to Myths and Legends.
Yet there has been many sightings in modern times of curious dog-headed "men" that are mostly reported in the Americas, where the country is vast and full of many outlets and research. Some of these Cynocephalians have been seen in other parts of the world, including Europe and Africa.
Some want us all to believe that the origins of the Cynocephaly comes from ancient people seeing lemurs on Madagascar. The issue I have with this view is that Madagascar is a pretty isolated island in the Indian Ocean, also ancient humans were not stupid to think lemurs are dog-headed people. Cynocephaly is a type of Theriocephaly, animal-headed humans.
There are many gods that were animal headed on humanlike bodies. It stems from prehistoric beliefs in animal worship. Animal headed and dog headed humans as deities in antiquity. Animal and dog headed people seen as monsters today, in only the realms of Horror. From divine beings, to fearsome creatures of the night. From gods like Anubis to werewolves like Wolfman. The link drawing together divine beliefs in the Cynocephaly and Theriocephaly to the scariness of it, is DEATH.
Anubis was a dog-headed (or some say jackel-headed) god of the underworld and the dead. We also recognise how Anubis looks, like a tall muscular man with the head of a dog. Werewolves represent death also, especially hunting. Werewolves are cyclical as they're well believed to change at the full moon. Anubis was also a god of the moon. It means that dog-heads or really people who become dog headed are parallel to the lunar cycle and that could trigger a multiple spike in werewolves during blue moons.
The dog heads are a special breed of animal/people for they represent something lost and forgotten. Whatever was known and buried, is now myth. Whatever is known and glimpsed (Dog-men sightings), is a time of legends.
We've entered the phase in our earth's orbit of rotation that appears slowing, and our days lengthening. If this is right, our days will slow down further so by next century, there will be an extra two or three seconds. That means a Full Moon night will linger for a slower time, and the future will get longer lasting lunacy and lycanthropy.
