Eurasian wolves have many maggpies in their exhibit and they do not seem to care at all, they coexist without any problem :) it is said that wolves and this sort of birds have so strange relationship!

Thank you for your comments and faves :hug:

INFO ABOUT THE ANIMAL:

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.

Perhaps the magpie eats some of what the wolves kill, and in return with the such sharp senses the bird can alert the wolf of trouble.

If Wox didn't put them there, there's no doubt that there would be more attempts at art theft being made.

The one in the middle would be enough; the one on the right could be cropped off in seconds, same with the one on the left. :/

Wolves and carrion birds have often been closely associated. Odin had wolves and ravens, in The Sight a raven was the familiar of the witch-wolf and a piece of the prophecy... I can't think of any other mildly-popular or well-known references, but you get my point.
