25 Wolf Puns That Are Howlingly Funny

These wolf puns will help you feel better about wolves—even the Big Bad one.

But wolves can be funny, just like all animals can. (Don’t believe us? Just check out these fish puns and duck jokes.) And wolf puns can be just as amusing as, say, bear puns. (Somehow storybook bears are lovable—even though, in the wild, they’re just as dangerous as wolves.)
