It is associated with ferocity and cruelty. The presence of a wolf in dreams is a warning that you should distrust those around you, since someone could betray you. The wolf may also symbolize those tendencies you fear in yourself, such as aggressiveness and sexual desire. If a pack of wolves threatens or attacks you, it is an indication that your repressed instincts and emotions are trying to come to light. In the story Little Red Riding Hood, the wolf represents the cruelest part of man and the fear of sexual contact. In olden days, this story was told by mothers to their daughters to warn them of the danger of premarital sex.
