Les Hubacs is the place where one of the first deadly actions took place of the Beast of Gévaudan. It was a human eating wolf responsible for more than 120 victims in southern France in the period 1764-1765. On the 30th of June 1764, 14-year-old Jeanne Boulet gets to the hills around Les Hubacs, probably gathering the cattle. She will never come home again. An unknown being attacks the defenseless girl. In the parish register of Saint-Etienne-de-Lugdarès we read that Jeanne Boulet is buried on July 1, 'sans sacrements, ayant été tuée par la bête féroce'. This suggests that poor Jeanne is not the first victim. A few weeks before, another girl in the neighboring Langogne was also attacked by a beast, but she was able to escape.
