If a wolf was coming at me with the intent to kill me.. It depends. But considering only wolves that are rabid or injured in the head attaack. It may be in ones best intrest to respond with forcce. Since a sane wolf wouldn't do that.

As I said before, I don't care if the wolf was "sane" or not. In truth- you nor I know if the wolf is sane, it may be REALLY hungry.

If a wolf was going to KILL(not just attack) you for whatever reason, whether it be to eat you, you threatened it ect... Would you kill it in self defence?

Now I why some people don't like hypothetical questions.. people avoid the point.

If I needed to defend myself or another person (anyone, doesn’t depend on if I know them or not), I would absolutely kill a wolf or any other animal. Not sure how I would do that, since I don’t know how to use a gun or any other weapon, but if I could and that was the only way to make it stop attacking, I would.
If it was attacking a dog I probably wouldn’t kill it, unless I had already seen it show aggressive behavior towards humans and thought that it might be dangerous to people.

for my answer, if i was near death;with a traqolizer(sorry,i think i spelt that wrong) gun, mabye, but if i had a real gun, i would probaly just shoot it UP wards and the wolf probaly would get scared. But i would NEVER kill a WOLF!

I'd kill it, no doubt about that. Pretty as they are, they're worth less to me than a human life.

Besides, if you used a tranquilizer, it could take a while for the thing to stop; whereas a shot/stab/blow to the back of the head or neck would probably either scare it off or hurt it to the extent where it can't do anything more to the victim instantly.

the only way to kill a wolf fast is to shoot it, and i dont think everybody has a gun with them, so, no i will not kill a wolf if someone is attacked by it because it will kill you faster then you them.
I want to be a wolf - and hunt elk en run through forests and have a real social life!!!!!

Like I said, fast-working gun or a tranquilizer that has a huge chance of not working at all?

I've seen tranquilizers fail. A research group was out checking tagged bears once, the tranquilizer failed and the bear charged at them before the ground group could get another shot in. The only thing that saved them were the backup in the helicopter.

But even if you have never shot a real hunting rifle, you should carry at least a bb gun [or whatever its spelled like] or be with someone who has shot one of the two is with you if you're in wolf country or in an area with an escaped zoo animal.

2016 edit: I dislike my 10 year old self. to rephrase what was originally posted in a less annoying way, at the time I would never have killed a wolf.

we do read.

its just that its extremely unlikely that a wolf would every attack you unless it was rabit or if you attacked it first.

and then they are fairly easy to scare off with a gun if you do have one, and that is far easier than killing it. and then there are those experienced enough that they can fire a gun at a wolf and not kill it.

it is just so inconcieveable a thought, there is not a whole lot to think about. I see no point in shooting a wolf to protect a dog, and again simply firing the gun would probably scare it off.

so really there is not a whole lot to debate, simply because probably the only thing that might attack you is a rabid wolf, which I am sure anyone would shoot. it saves them a very painful death otherwise.

Again, you're avoiding my question.
Even if you shot a gun into the air and the wolf kept coming.
For whatever reason, I don't care for you 'explanations' to why wolves are so awesome.

Would you let it get too close?

And why not save a dog?
They're not important?
You can replace them?
Not really, a REAL dog owner is someone who holds the strongest bond with their companion, not just something that they can replace and say, "Oh well the wolf got it, let's go get another one."

This is coming from someone who believes they were a wolf(or some familar canid) in a past life, so don't assume I hate wolves, I'm just open minded about the both sides of debates. :)
Or in this case, the side that doesn't have a lot of support.
