I was walking my dog alone in the woods. I first saw shadows out of the corner of my eye, when I looked up I saw a huge white/grey wolf raising his head to look at me about 25 meters away. The first thing I thought was how beautiful it was, then I was terrified it would go after my dog and I knew it wasn’t alone. I backed away slowly and took a short cut out of the woods to walk the tree line back to my house. My dog hadn’t noticed a thing (not unusual for him).
Suddenly I heard a drum beat. It was out of place enough that I stopped to listen and figure out what it was and where it was coming from. My neighbors house was empty and dark and there were no other houses in the area. It sounded like it was coming from the woods, and it sounded exactly like the few times I’ve been to a Powwow but without singing. I tried to brush it off and took one step forward. The drums stopped. I took one step backwards. The drums started again. I panicked and chased my frantic dog all the way home.
