The Wolf Man. Wolfspark Werner Freund is a wolf sanctuary spread over 25 acres in western Germany. It is home to 29 wolves — six distinct packs hailing from Europe, Siberia, Canada, the Arctic, and Mongolia. Researcher Werner Freund, 79, a former German paratrooper, established the sanctuary in 1972 and has raised more than 70 animals there over the last 40 years. He acquired the wolves as cubs from zoos or animal parks and has reared them mostly by hand. Werner has also taken to living closely with his wolves, behaving as an alpha male to earn their acceptance and respect. via
I loved the idea of living with Wolves until I realised part of being a dominant pack leader is control over the vital organs during feeding time. Which means to keep your place in the pack you have to eat raw hearts, kidneys, and livers. Also you can only wear one set of clothes that you never wash so long as you are in contact with the pack. Wolves sense of smell is also how they remember others. They can smell a tree you brushed up against a month ago. Their entire memory of interactions with you is in written into your smell. It’s one of the reasons behind why they constantly touch each other.
