I like how they have no conception for how weird this is, just like with a house cat and a tiger.
>>

This wolf was kinda famous they believe it was thrown out of its pack.
It was a young male and sought out dogs for company.
Locals became very fond of it, media caught wind and then poachers shot it.
>>
>>2958115

Oh yeah, I remember. His name was Romeo and they have a statue up in his honor. Fucking poachers are the worst.

I maintain we should take the African approach and just kill every poacher we catch

Why do wolves lick? I know dogs do it as affection but do wolves use it for the same reason or just to try and get packmates to share food?
>>
>>2958067
Absolutely not. You can not treat these in the same way as you do a domestic dog. If you have a wolf who sees an opportunity to rise to the top of the pack, it will take it. And that opportunity will involve badly hurting, if not killing, the perceived alpha, which will be you.
>>
>>2958190
They will not attempt violence unless you seriously open yourself up to it, wild animals don't risk fights if there is a chance it will get them killed for little gain.
>>

Not really as weird as a cat/tiger. We have domestic dog breeds of comparable sizes to wolves.

Most dog behaviors are retained from wolves, typically sociable behavior like that doesn't come up in the wild for wolves unless they're safe and secure

Tell me about it. She relies on the legacy of her species as being fearsome badger dogs as a way of intimidating her enemies into submission--her "enemies" being whatever is placed in the food bowl.
>>
>>2958190

Except that's not true. The whole Alpha/Beta dynamic was proposed from a single study which was so fraught with experimental design flaws that its creators retracted it.

Wild wolf packs are most commonly family units, with one breeding pair and their offspring. The two wolves at the top aren't so much "Alpha" to everyone, they're just mom and dad, and a pecking order moves down the chain based on age.

That being the case, your point that wolves are wild animals and should be treated as such stands.

When I was a kid, I was really into wolves, and my favorite thing was when they would exhibit dog-like behavior like that. Like, even if you're a majestic beast from mankind's distant nightmares, still doesn't keep you from having a small bladder.

>>2958067
Wolfs are bad boys
>>
>>2958187
Animals do not show social traits unless they feel safe.
A bird will not groom itself if it thinks danger is nearby.
A dog/wolf will not smell a another's anus, lick, or chew on a dogs coat unless it feels it's safe to do so.

This is why we reach our hands out slightly to dogs, if they sniff and lick they are being legitimate friendly and aren't a danger to you.
A wolf you let come to you instead of meeting it halfway, but it's the same thing. Wolves will nudge you, lick you, or lightly chew on your clothes. All of this is positive.

I think the first time, they should get a heavy fine. Like a year's wages, if it's an accident. Past that should just be a DoA bounty on them, with higher rewards for alive so they can be publicly executed.

They just released 4 on Isle Royale. They're good boys (and one girl). A coworker got to work on the project and shared this photo with our office.

i've heard it's social (as wolves dont have hands, their mouths are their hands) but also has to do w non-alpha's expressing submissiveness or hunger and want for food from a more dominant wolf

Of course, otherwise we wouldn't have teamed up with them until they became dogs.

So wolves are monogamous, but dogs are not. Since wolves and stray/escaped dogs fuck all the time, does that mean there's a lot of heartbroken wolves out there who thought their one night stand meant more?

A wolf is like double the size of a nigbull
>>
>>2963174
Which one is more likely to randomly maul the anon that was full enough to tame them?
>>
>>2963175
The wolf. Because until it's a dog it's not domesticated only take. Pitbulls know the rules they were taught, and they're rules humans can understand if you're smart enough to play by them. Wolves only know their own rules, and they're rules humans aren't equipped to play by.

Wolves can't read human facial expressions or understand our tone of voice well. Dogs, even nigbulls, can, and assuming it's not inbred to hell and ruined they'll at least perform the basic roles they've been bred for. So you keep a pit bull properly contained and away from potential dangerous situations, you're good. But you never know for certain how a wolf will act.

Are you some kind of newfag
>>
>>2963186
Pretty sure some wolves can read human faces, otherwise that trait would have never been passed down in the first place.
>>
>>2963208
That may be true but it's highly rare, and more of a trait that developed as a result of focused domestication.

Best thing would be to go out with her. Wild canines, on their own, are terrified of people. You merely being present, even if you're just like, reading the paper while your critter does her business, will scare away anything that would eat her.

I had a relative who lived on an Indian reserve in Canada. Her family owned a wolf husky. It fucked off to be a bitch for Wolves who inhabited the area. They were responsible for eating a classmate she had in elementary school. The wolves along with her dog were shot around the back of the school. The class was ongoing as she heard the pack and her dog get shot one by one. Bad doggie.
