have you seen that documentry on the sawtooth pack? humans and 'wild' wolves living together. if you havent seen it youtube it, its a good watch. (living with wolves)
:)

but your point about the fact that truely wild wolves proberbly wont trust a human, is proberbly true.

Seen it. 1- Not everything televised/on film is true. 2- No ordinary person can just go out there. It isn't practical. It takes time to get used to conditions like that. How do you know that you won't starve within a month? You need to learn to hunt for your own food, and I guarantee you that wolves won't share. You need tons of gear, including food, a water purifier, and plenty of warm clothing. A normal person wouldn't be able to live up to it, espically with this generation constantly on the newest i-something or another.
I'm not sure you understand how much gear, money, and preperation it takes to be able to go out in conditions wolves live in, espically in the winter.

Edit- Typo

There was a time when I would say, "Yes! Throw me in with the wolves! Even if they are wild and eat me I won't care, I will be with the wolves forever..."

But now that I am a little older, I have to say, no. *shame* :oops: People are people and wolves are wolves. Even if you could live like a wolf the way Mowgli does in the story "The Jungle Book" you would live longer than your wolf friends and they would die around you. Also if you ever ran into other people you would see the clash between wolves and people firsthand in a very painful way like in the movie "Never Cry Wolf." For this reason I think it would be challenging even to work with a wild pack, how could you not get involved if they were in trouble?

I have seen another documentary besides sawtooth pack but I can't remember the name...it is about a man who lived with captive wolves in an enclosure. It was an amazing movie about how he bonded with the wolves to become one of them. The best part was when he taught the puppies to howl! However, he looked like a wild man and had to let his wife and family go. He had to give his whole life up to live like this.

The only way I would want to live with wolves is if I could be one myself!

It would be cool to live with wolves if you had the proper supplies and knowledge to do so, and of course if there wasn't the risk of the wolves suddenly killing you or something. But, most people wouldn't be able to survive in the wild (I definitely wouldn't be able to, nor would I even want to) and that risk will always be there. So, yeah, I'll stick with living :p

Yes I suppose so like I said If the wolf wouldn't rip my face off I would love it (I would probably go to a sanctuary where there are wolves for this anyways)

Wolf sanctuaries are amazing, but keep in mind that the wolves there may be socialised, but are by no means tame. You may have a lesser chance of getting hurt, but its still a posibility. "Wolves for this" emplies that the wolves are tame and trained. Not necessarily. They might be socialised but most likely not trained.

Sorry I'm not good at grammar and punctuation I kind of had that backwards I know that that means that they are not tame I'm just saying if a wolf wouldn't attack, and was alright with the presence of humans in it's territory it would be cool to see one up close I'm not applying I would actually stick to what I said but I would at least like to work with them and help them considering that they are most likely being hunted and shot by livestock farmers and hunters not all of them but yeah. (And I meant Where the wolves would be for this action of being up close)

Ah, I see. Still, you never know. There was a girl at a zoo once; she worked with big cats. (Different from wolves in their social structures [no family/dominance, they live alone], but still wild and a good example) She had raised this lion cub, and he grew up. They still were together. She'd feed him and take care of him, and he would follow her around and act like a house cat. One day the lion snapped, and attacked her, killing her. No one knows why. I forgot where this was, but it wasn't long ago.

Now, cats and wolves are different. Wolves are less likely to attack because of their social structure (espically if you put yourself in the "alpha" position"), but they still could attack for reasons unknown.
