6.04 Weekend at Bobby's

Rufus has the police on his tail and needs Bobby Singer's help hiding the body of an ōkami. They bury the body on Bobby's property and Rufus leaves just before Sheriff Jody Mills shows up with an FBI agent, Agent Adams. Agent Adams is looking for Rufus, convinced that he disposed of a body on Bobby's property. Sheriff Jody Mills tries to distract him, but Adams finds the spot where the ōkami was buried. Fortunately, there is no longer any evidence of a crime because the ōkami is gone. Unfortunately, Rufus didn't stab it enough times to kill it, and it is loose. Bobby eventually kills the ōkami by putting it through Marcy Ward's woodchipper.

Ōkami in Lore

Ōkami is the Japanese name for the creature commonly called the Japanese wolf (Canus lupus hodophylax), which became extinct in 1905, though there have been many sightings since, mostly concentrating around the Kii Peninsula. Ōkami feature in some folklore.
