It can be found inside Castle Volkihar, in Harkon's Quarters in a display case. It can be acquired either by joining the Volkihar Clan and thereby having access to the castle early on, or when assaulting the castle later with the Dawnguard. Taking it during the Dawnguard assault counts it as a stolen item, though it can be sold to a Fence and bought back to remove the stolen tag. It respawns with the rest of the castle's contents. It's presence in Harkon's quarters suggests that it was a trophy taken from a slain werewolf, due to Harkon's hatred of lycanthropes.
- Despite the fact that it is a pelt from a werewolf, this item can not be looted from them if they are slain.
