And it's awesome that you've been so close to wolves. I love wolves; I think they are beautiful animals, whose habitat has been decimated by humans. I have not seen any wild wolves in all my years of camping, albeit that camping has been done in established national park campgrounds, and not in the back country.
Just the same, the precautions about food storage are valid, as this holds true also for bears, which WILL forage around campgrounds and raid the garbage. The closest to wild wolves I have come was seeing them in their enclosure at Wolf Haven in Washington State--a sanctuary for wolves who for various reasons can no longer be released to the wild Once, when out with a group at Lava Beds National Monument, we heard baby Coyotes off in the distance.
They sounded so cute, but no, we would not have wanted to find mom and dad in our campsite. This was an informative, fascinating read. They are majestic, beautiful creatures, but I sure don't want to come eye to eye with them. I agree! At that point being meek probably won't help you. I'll need to add that in and clarify. Thanks for the insight, you're awesome!
Wow this hub is super good advice! But if the wolf fights u, wouldn't it be effective to bare ur own teeth and snarl back with a stern, dominant stare? I tried that with several fenced barking, growling dogs and they left me alone; they actually turned away! Yeah, while wolf attacks are low compared to other animals you shouldn't trust them - they are wild animals after all. That's crazy that they pass right through your yard though!
Must make for some great pictures. Thanks so much for reading, and keep an eye on your pets with the wolves around! We have wolves come in our yard. I do not trust them I have had them growel at me. They hang out in our yard because they are passing through to go to our meadow where deer bed down and eat. I hope to never need this information either, but it is good to know. I'll have to look into that book! And I tried to find the best photos I could while still being relevant to the article. I found this article fascinating - I surely hope I never need the information on how to protect myself from a wold attack but I am glad I read it!
I have a lot of fellow-feeling with wolves, especially after reading the Nicholas Evans novel, The Loop. Your article is beautifully illustrated, your images are very well chosen and the one of the black wolf is particularly striking. Great job! Many people misunderstand how little wolf attacks even occur, as the table shows. And attacks are especially rare within the United States. Very interesting hub! From looking at your table, there really hasn't been that many wolf attacks this century. Only one or two attacks in a couple years in the entire world? That's nothing!
Though, what was going on in ? Great hub. There are so many things that I came to know after reading your hub. Great Tips. Thanks for sharing. Voted up.

That tells me that the chances of it happening to me or you are pretty low. Oliver Starr, who has raised dozens of wolves and did field work for wolf rehabilitation in Yellowstone, answered this question on Quora.
He suggests that one would have to work pretty hard to be in close proximity to wild, healthy wolves, especially since they are generally cautious to fearful of humans, and because their territories are typically extremely large. But, he does have a few suggestions for surviving a wolf attack. If things get really bad… curl into a ball and protect your face. The best reaction to getting that close to a grey wolf is to use your high caliber rifle or your 44 magnum hand gun and kill it. Looking big and all that other stuff will get you killed and eaten. Oh, I forgot.
Wolves kill for fun too. Very true, Fred! Although I would add that most semi-auto handgun rounds should take care of wolves. There may not be many wolf attacks, but there are a fair number of aggressive dogs out there, and all of these techniques are pretty much what you should do if you encounter one of them, too.
They hybridized the introduced wolves in my area with Timber wolves from canada.. If you go hiking carry a gun.. Never venture out in areas where there are wolves or mountain lions unless you are armed. After watching a pack of wolves take on a grizzly bear in Yellowstone over a kill, the only alternative for a human being would be to shoot a few and hope that would end an encounter. Here again, try not to be out in this kind of situation alone.
