Having evolved under human protection, domesticated animals make easy prey for wolves, as they are unable to defend themselves. Typically wolves resort to attacking livestock when wild prey is depleted. The Ethiopian wolf Canis simensis can be found on safari in the high altitude plateau of the Bale Mountains. These wolves live in close-knit territorial packs of between 3 and 13 adults, but generally forage alone. Their diet consists almost exclusively of rodents such as the giant molerat and various species of grass rat that are endemic to their Afro-alpine range, where they stalk their prey in the open or dig them out of burrows.
Adults of a pack gather to patrol and mark the territory at dawn and dusk and repel any intruders, usually curling up together in the open to rest during the night,. Strong social bonds exist and group members greet each other excitedly. We send news on our latest tours, offers and events 2 to 3 times a month. View a recent e-news. All fields are required.

Outlandish wolf stories have come from Russia for centuries. Anxiety Through the Ages. Although it is meant to be a serious study of Russian wolves, it is pretty much a collection of more folklore.
It has a new ending too, making it as accurate as the aforementioned book. If that is supposedly a reputable website than that is pathetic to listen to a few whining hunters and put out a story like that. However the population of their usual prey, rabbits, has decreased this year due to lack of food, so wolves have changed their habits. The story sounds bogus, but when that bloodthirsty urge comes, a little sensationalism at the expense of wolves gets the point across- we must protect humans from this threat!!

A member wolf pack, wow!
I bet they have an orgchart and a total compensation benefit package with retirement and combat pay for their members and I bet they use secret wolf-code on walkie-talkies and I bet Valerius Geist is in personal contact with their high command! I bet their alphas graduated from Utah State. So, I wonder how large a pack has to get before that starts to happen..? Most of the wolf biologists I know say that they regulate their pack sizes on their own based on prey base within their established range.
