Definitely not, I would not run away from civilization to live with wolves for numerous reasons.

1. I would have to find all my own food and drink possibly unclean water
2. The raw meat wolves eat is not good for humans to consume
3. Wolves are wild and I would not want to risk anything
4. Some of the environments that wolves live in are not suitable for humans
5. Me getting sick has a much higher chance in the wild
6. Other predators, such as bears and cougars would not hesitate to attack a human they saw as weak
7. Wolves travel quite a bit, and keeping up with them would be difficult


Living with wolves is not some sort of paradise that films like "The Jungle Book" show, there are cases of people living with or being raised by wolves and many of those people were feral and had to be taken into rehab. So no, I would pass on the opportunity to live with wolves.

Well, I think it would be awesome if you could meet everything you need but realistic, humans aren't made to do that just like we aren't built to fly. I would definitely fall ill within the first week if I were able to keep up with everything they do, and you cant drink river water right from the river/stream and the meat that they catch would not be good for eating without being cooked if they even let you eat. I'm basically saying what Silver Mist Wolf wrote. I think it would be awesome and amazing to live alongside the wolves if it were possible.
Keep calm and love animals

no. i wouldn't mind working with wolves, but living with them?? these things aren't just like pretty majestic dogs... they're wild animals. not to mention how filthy and inconvenient The Wolf Lifestyle would be...

Assuming you do not literally live in Yellowstone or another wolf habitat - Since legitimate wolves cannot legally be sold as pets, someone has tricked you into buying a (probably low content) wolfdog.


probably not even a low-content wolfdog. whenever people are sold "wolves" they're generally agouti huskies or some mix of husky, GSD, malamute, etc... you can see it in their posture and their eyes... and the ears and legs too. even a low-content wolfdog is pretty distinct from a husky or malamute.

Maybe. It would depend on a lot of things. Are the wolves friendly? Are they used to humans? How mean are they? If its all good, tho, then i'd love to live with wolves!

I would want to live with Wolves, but it would be hard. People are not as fast as wolves. I would love to be a wolf.
my favourite games on the computer are: WolfQuest, AnimalJam, Star Stable, howrse and all the dreamzer games.

My favourite books are: Warriors, The Wolf Chronicles, survivers and Spirit Animals.

I will be getting a horse in about 3 years and a half years. So excited!

If I could turn into a wolf myself, I might give it a whirl, but as a human? Certainly not. I like my warm home and wifi too much xD

  • it'd be extremely hard to cope without Wi-Fi so I'd have to say no, and without any clean water or food or hygiene it'd be like my idea of a nightmare haha.

I have actually been sitting here for like 10 minutes trying to think of a good answer <.>

Well, I guess I would give it a go for like a week? I can think of ways to keep my hygiene and ways to clench my thirst without hastle, but would this mean I would need to eat raw meat from a cow elk that the hunting party has brought back. Oh my I can’t begain to imagine me trying to tag along with the hunting party.
Then again I wouldn’t be able to live without wifi, well I probably could, I would just go into a state where I lose all my insanity all together.

No, thanks. I'd love to work with wolves, I think they're amazing creatures, but I value my life and my internet connection a little too much for that. Not to mention I'm about as athletic as a pile of rocks!

Considering that the wilderness is extremely unforgiving and also has no internet connection, I'm going to pass. I can hardly survive encounters with my own species. :^)

I don't think I quite have the survival skills to live with wolves in the wild, heh, but I do find the idea of working with wolf ambassadors or running a sanctuary for wolves/wolf dogs that aren't able to survive in the wild to be an interesting one. I'd definitely need to learn a lot more before I'd ever be at that point though, as I'm sure I'm not qualified for such a position at the moment. Still, who knows what the future could hold?

I adore wolves and would love to live an hour away from Yellowstone N.P., or just anyway with wolves except the really cold places like North Canada and, correct me if I'm wrong, but I've heard there are also some wolves in Alaska, which is very cold too. :|
I've also heard the population of wolves in Washington state is increasing, so maybe I'll just stay put! :D
I would love to have some wolves wandering around my back yard! :mrgreen:
