hmmm woulnd't be surprised if some hybrids got into the picture. Their are lots of feral dogs near northern communities that go unchecked...but as far as I know their arctic wolves (its in the Northwest Territories).

The first two are just.....big wolves. Their huge! If you consider the average man is like...say 5 foot and seven inches...that wolf makes him look small. That wolf standing at the shoulders is like six feet! 0_0

As other people have said, I think the first two are for sure fake. The last one does look like they might have shot some crosses, or maybe fake as well. The one on the right looks (to me) like a Husky crossed with a Great Pyrenees, and maybe some wolf. That's totally my opinion though.

I would have to say that the first one is definitely fake. The second one looks fake as well, but the third looks as if it could be real. The third one does look a bit like a husky mixed with a malamute or wolf, so it oculd be real but not 100% wolf.

The first 2 are fake.But the third looks real.And if they are Arctic wolves, they should be.Arctic wolves are a seperate species of wolf growing to 160 pounds.And I didn't pull that out of thin air, my dad :D is a naturalist.

They could all be real or all be fake. You never know unless you know where the wolves were killed/captured. Their size all depends on where they are from. The largest wolf on record (Alaska) was 275 pounds. The largest in Europe i believe was only around 135 pounds. :)

I'd think the first couple look fake, and the ones near the end..

I would say that they are all fake, for one the first picture, the wolf's muzzle looks to large(well thats what i think about it >> idk if a wolf's muzzle really does get that large or anything but it certainly nothin i seen :? )

Second one seems fake aswel, the front legs to me seem to skinny and short.

Third one im not so sure about, for one i don't see any blood and their tails look to be really small and their heads a bit big. but some how im just not sure :?


Any way its sad how people kill wolves
I believe in freedom, and peace. But sometimes, you don't always get what you want. Don't believe lies, don't trust strangers who out of the blue talk to you, and beware of scams such as the 2012 lie. YOUR choices shape YOUR future.

I say the last one and the one Sheeba posted are real. The first one looks like it's definetely Photoshopped. The second one looks believable, but also looks like a big stuffed animal [filled with fluff, not an actual, murdered, stuffed wolf >.<]. It's still sad they woud kill those [HUGE,] magnificent animals.

That's kinda hard to believe but maybe it's the last dire wolf or something? I was sure the first 2 were edited but the last seemed more real.

Dire wolves were extinct thousands of years ago...waaay before cameras were invented.

I suppose they could be real, but imo it seems highly unlikely. Especially in the third picture, it just seems photoshopped or something of the sort. As said before, there's no blood, which leads me to believe it's fake, as well as the fact that wolves are hardly ever that large, if at all.

The first one looks like plush to me. I'm not sure about the seond picture, and the third one looks like a husky-wolf mix.

Yeah, the first one is probably a plush because of the 'no blood' situation.

Well, I don't necessarily think that there has to be a huge mess of blood when an animal is killed, especially if it was shot with an arrow. And trust me, I would know...^^

Still, that doesn't mean that the photos are real, but something about the first one doesn't seem right like everyone else said.

Maybe the guys holding them are just small... xD
