This pack of wolves lived in the Forbidden Forest on the grounds of Hogwarts Castle in Scotland. The pack was the result of the rare union between two werewolves mating at the full moon, an occurrence known to have happened only one other time in wizarding history. The pack was allowed to live in the Forbidden Forest by then-Headmaster Albus Dumbledore when they were a young litter, and it, in time, grew into a pack of beautiful and highly intelligent wolves. The wolves were no more dangerous than normal wolves, bearing none of the savageness and taste for human flesh that werewolves have. Despite this, rumours of savage werewolves living in the forest spread amongst the student body of Hogwarts, rumours that the staff let spread in hopes to help keep students out of the forest.
Draco Malfoy and Argus Filch both knew that there are werewolves in the forest, however only Filch knew they were not in fact vicious and only acted so to scare children away from the forest. Ronald Weasley also believed that there are werewolves.
