Location of Villers-Farley in France

Location of Villers-Farley in France Geography

Villers-Farley is the place where a "mad wolf" mauled residents whose wounds were thereafter cauterized with branding irons in the presence of young Louis Pasteur.

The branding incident took place in the nearby village of Arbois, where Pasteur and his family lived at the time. Pasteur never forgot the horror of watching people who were already terrified of getting rabies go through the branding process.
