De Lupis, ac sævitia eorundem.

CAP. XIII.

                                        SICVT Africa, & Aegyptus inertes, parvosque lupos gignunt:
                                        ita frigidus orbis Septentrionis ( teste Plinio lib. Lupi truces.
                                        VIII. cap. XXII. ) hos asperos, & truces emittit.
                                        Et vere sic esse, sævitia & malitia eorum ostendit, præsertim
                                        tempore coitus, & frigoris immensi, quando viatores
                                        armatos incedere oportebit, vt se, jumentaque sua illæsosLupi insidiantur mulieribus imprægnatis.
                                        conservent, præcipue mulieres partui viciniores: quibus
                                        lupi capto odore magis insidiantur. Ideoque nulla fœmina
                                        sola permittitur itinerari, quin armatus custos illi assistat, Bellum contra lupos.
prout suprapolita figura demonstrat. Evenit enim plerunque mense Ianuario,
vt hyemalibus vehiculis homines itinerantes, agminatim ab vtroque latere accurrentesViatores armati.
lupos, si vivere velint, arceant sagittis, & bombardis: vnde fit, vt non secus viatores
ad privata negotia, etiam Ecclesias rurales transituri, in armis prædictis sint
provisi, quam ad publica certamina forent prosecturi: immo in tantam sæpissime ferociamLupi irruunt in ædes humanas.
& rabiem vrgente fame, frigore, & naturali congressu incidunt, vt humanas
habitationes intrantes, rapta jumenta ibidem celerius devorent, vel secum in sylvasRemedia occidendorum luporum.
lacerata deportent. Sed neque impune hoc faciunt: habent etenim & in his malis remedia
ruricolæ, quod falces ferreas alligato cadavere ponant in nivibus: vt lupi prædam
voraturi, pedibus amputatis pœnas luant, vel sagittis impetiti, illico moriantur, Specus.
vel subterraneis specubus aviditate prædæ immersi, fame macerentur.
Immo & plures diversi generis rapaces bestias, vt prædictos gulones,
& vulpes in eandem specum cadentes, habebunt socios mortis:
qui communi sævitia cum eis omnia
deprædabantur.
