Giant wolf in my basement

This happened to me when I was in elementary school. I grew up in a family home, the house my great-grandfather built for his growing family back in the 40-50's. I know for a fact that no one had died in the house, but I was always freaked out in it. The basement terrified me the most.

The two generations before my mom were hoarders, so when my mom and I moved back into her childhood home after my parents split, it was full of stuff. The basement was mainly used to store all of my great-grandfathers things since he passed a few months after my birth. This made the basement dark and cluttered, leaving creepy shadows everywhere.

My mom tried to clean it up a bit and make a play room for me. She also had a small work out bench that was next to this tiny boiler/heater thing.

One day, my friend and I were sitting in the basement playing with some of my dolls. I don't remember why, but I decided to take a break and sit in the workout bench. For some reason I turned my head to look into the empty space above this heater, but it wasn't empty. Instead there was this giant wolf's head in the space.

It looked like a normal grey wolf, or at least what I think a normal wolf looks like. It was just staring at me. I turned to my friend to see if she had reacted to it, but she was still enthralled by the dolls. I glanced back at the wolf, but it was snarling this time.

Needless to say I was terrified so I grabbed my friend and ran upstairs. I didn't tell her why we left in such a hurry because I didn't wanna scare her. It took me years to go back into the basement by myself. I told my mom and she just said it was a spirit guide or protector.

I don't know if she truly believed that or if she just wanted to make me feel better.

Wolves have considerable paranormal symbolism. Entities can take the form of wolves. Many people will tell you that your experience was just a child's imagination but it is interesting to me that you were so taken by this to be writing about it years later. To me, that increases the likelihood that more than imagination was involved.
