When Animals Attack

My Street

I dreamed drax0r and I were walking back to my house from down the street when it started to get dark. "We need to hurry," I coaxed nervously, my eyes darting around. As we neared the next-door-neighbor's house I saw the coyote between the cars and stopped, extending my arm to indicate he needed to do the same. I wasn't too worried about slipping past a single coyote, but as I cautiously moved forward I saw a second coyote, and approaching quickly - perhaps too quickly - a wolf.

About the time I saw the second wolf I'd also noticed some movement peripherally to my left and looked that direction. Two skunks and a badger, meandering to be sure, but definitely moving my direction. We started to backtrack, very slowly moving backwards, our eyes never leaving the shockingly growing amount of animals almost accidentally making their way toward us. Only, this was no accident. I wasn't sure what all was at play here, but by the time we reached the large two-story house it was dark as pitch and I was hoping the occupants of the house didn't sleep too soundly, because those animals would certainly turn toward me once I started knocking. I whispered something to drax0r but right before I knocked, I remembered the house was vacant and on the market - and no one would be home!

I turned the doorknob and we tumbled inside. I was shocked! I sat up on the floor and noticed the wolves and coyotes and skunks and badgers all coming for us. drax0r closed the door and I realized we weren't at the vacant house - which is why the door was unlocked - in my fear I'd backtracked across the two empty lots to the second two-story house! Our other neighbors! I yelled out that we have just come into their house unannounced. There is an office right off the entryway, so I darted in there to announce myself and came face-to-face to with the lady of the house - topless - she was hurriedly dressing. I averted my eyes and stepped back to the foyer with out another word. The lady of the house called for her kids to "bring the shotgun" and we holed up by the door adjacent the front door - the once which leads to the garage, shotgun ready.

It was a tense night, straight out of a zombie movie. We could hear the animals outside, but once the sun came up, they were gone. We'd been up all night. I offered to go home and make pancakes to bring her for breakfast, as a show of thanks for protecting us.

HIDING FROM OR BEING TRAPPED BY ANIMALS: You are feeling controlled or threatened by your urges or the emotions or feelings of others.

BEING THREATENED OR ATTACKED BY ANIMALS: You are repressing your instincts.

SKUNK: Your suppressed anger is on the verge of exploding.

COYOTE: Associated with death.

WOLF: dreamer may be feeling threatened by something *or* symbols of repressed sexuality and anger.

BADGER: Needing to get away from the influence of other people.

SEEING NAKED BREASTS: can denote a feeling of exposure and invasion of privacy.

BREAKFAST: Attitude toward a new project.

Needless to say, I've had some fucked up dreams here lately, and this one freaking brims with repressed anger. Funny, I don't feel angry.

drax0r is sure in your dreams a lot. Maybe he represents the wolf in your dream!!!

This is about Charlie Sheen's tour. Isn't it?

Coyotes, badgers and skunks...OH MY!

So I'm wondering why all of these animals represent rather negative things.

Because they're scary?

You've been having very vivid dreams! Do you always remember them with such clarity? Can you be "active" (or whatever the word is) in them?

I can rarely interact, though I have been known to "continue" from one night to the next when I put my mind to it - mostly in my late 20s though I can occasionally still pull that off. But yes, my dream tag is a frightening place because I do often remember them so entirely. They come and go,l like the seasons though. Some months I don't dream at all, or only recall shards of them. Others are like a great interactive movie I'll never forget.

I guess it's great when you enjoy the theme...but anxiety producing when you go to bed at night if not!

I had a very similar dream about wolves. Being outside a house (thought it was mine, but it was not), seeing the wolves and going inside to take shelter, finding the open doors and closing them, etc. Literally, the wolves were at the door. Both the hiding from and the wolf symbolisms(the latter explanation)you cited would have made sense at the time.
