"I wish I was a wolf", I whisper as I stare into fierce eyes of the magnificent creatures on the other side of the acrylic barrier. They stare back at me with an unnerving intensity, whining softly. The wolves in the zoo enclosure aren't fooled. They can see right into my soul. They know I am really one of them. A wolf trapped in a man's body. They sense my desire to join them, to BECOME one of them. I beg them to correct nature's mistake, to undo the accident of my birth, and help me become the beast I was meant to be. With an enthusiastic chorus of snarls and howls, they begin to coax my spirit out of its human shell. I cast off all my clothing and fall to all fours moaning in pain. Onlookers gasp in shock, covering their children's eyes, but I am blissfully unaware of them. Modesty means nothing to me now. The zoo patrons begin to scream and run away as my my body begins to physically change and my true self is revealed. Lifting up onto digitigrade paws, I touch my new fangs with my tongue and decide that in return for the great gift they have bestowed upon me, I will help my new packmates escape this human prison. We will run wild and free!!! We will howl in triumph!!!!
