Dat iz mah new pet woolfye by woxys Dat iz mah new pet woolfye by woxys
Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus) from ZOO Chomutov, Czech republic :D

The story of the title: have you also noticed how many dA members pretend to own a wolf? :roll: I can accept daydreamers, who take photos of wolves in ZOOs or parks. But too often, I see people who make up whole long and detailed stories about their real wolf pets and they support such crazy lies with posting famous google photos! :roll: I have met a girl who said she got WHOLE wolf pack as her birthday present and she was absolutely serious about it, posting many stolen shots to proove she really got those animals :XD: yesterday, there was an adult (!!!) woman who also pretended to own a wolf, again posting a stolen photo of the canine. I have met even people who make up stories about petting or photographing wolves, using shots which were in fact taken by me :XD: That is pretty pathetic, people...

P.S.: this wolf is, of course, a ZOO animal and it is by no means my pet ;)

P.P.S.: I do not question keeping wolves as pets in general ;) my point is, that there are many poor liars who make up stories about keeping wolves, posting stolen photos :) so I warn you, better be careful before you start faving such photos and supporting such people with encouraging comments :D

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

Name: Eurasian grey wolf (canis lupus lupus)
Location: Eurasia (From Europe, to China and Russia)
Size: 1.6 m long + 50 cm tail, 100 cm high weight: 80 kg
Diet: medium sized ungulates (moufflon, chamois, saiga, wild boar, red deer, roe deer and livestock), smaller prey (frogs, mice, hares) but also fruit
Conservation status: Least Concern in general. But in some countries, there are only few animals. For example in the Czech republic, there are only some 15 Eurasian wolves, so wolves are critically endangered in my country.
Interesting facts: wolves live in the packs with strict hierarchy. Only alpha male and alpha female mate. Femalethen gives birth to 4-7 cubs. Mother and father both take care of them and then whole the pack helps them to rise the pups | wolves were exctinct in the Czech republic, as people successfully killed them all. Now, wolves are slowly returning from Slovakia and some 15 wolves live in Beskydy mountains. Unfortunately, some people still want to kill them, because they are afraid of wolves | fear of wolves is officially called Little Red Riding Hood syndrome | Eurasian wolves are very adaptable | their colourings vary a lot. | wolves have important roles in many myths, legends and fairy tales. They fascinate people.


To see more, look at my WOLVES GALLERY :aww:

This photo belongs to me and I can very easily prove, that it was me, who took this shot. So please, respect my copyright :nod: if you want to use my work, ask me first to gain my permission, please! Thank you :lol:

o3o so cute~~

I've always wanted a wolf as a pet >w< Second animal I wanted was a wolf. The first and still is a Kodiak Bear <3

I know that there are wolf-dog mixes, I believe you need a permit of some sort to own a real wolf?

I know my mother says she owned a wolf-dog mix. Her name was Wolf xD She told me funny little stories about all her dogs. I wish I could meet them but sadly they're gone.

My favorite strory about wolf was that they had chickens (it helped, since my mother was one of 15 kids) and they would take in the chickens p, cut them up bury their heads and stuff at the end of the garden to fertilize it. But, Wolf would dig the head and everything up and eat it. So they poured kerosine on the chickens when they buried them. But Wolf continued to dog them up even with the kerosine on them! XD

I wasn't even aware people could own wolves as pets... at least legally.

I know that my aunt owned one for all of 1 month. She said it was the smartest pet she ever owned. Funny story, she would take her for a walk around the apartments every night and there was always a man drinking there. He actually poured out some of his beer and... the weirdest thing, the wolf actually drank it. On another day a man walking home had a few pieces of raw meat and after handing it to her, she was able to track and find his doorstep... even though my aunt nor the wolf had actually been there!


Well now I feel like I'm giving you a bogus story so crap gotta find a family photo of the pet.
