The term “Loogaroo” AKA the soucouyant, possibly French for werewolf: Loup-garou; often confused with each other since they are pronounced the same. In Haiti, what would be considered a werewolf, is called jé-rouges (“red eyes”). As in Haiti, the Loogaroo is also common in Mauritian culture. In Suriname this creature is called “Asema.” – Wikipedia
