Werner Freund, German Wolfman, Feeds Wolves From His Mouth As Pack's 'alpha Male by olumide098(m): 10:08pm On Feb 02, 2013
A 79-year-old former military man has devoted his life to the beautiful but dangerous wolves that inhabit his wolf park in Germany.

In order to better learn about the wolves, Werner Freund has tried to become one of them, waking among them and feeding them raw meat from the ground, according to the Daily Mail.
Reuters reports that Freund has been running his 25-acre Wolfspark Werner Freund, located in the German province of Saarland, since 1972. Over the past four decades, he has raised close to 70 wolves.Often the wolves come to him as cubs by way of zoos or animal parks, per Reuters.

Currently, Freund has 29 wolves living among him; they are divide into six packs. The National Geographic notes that wolves observe a rigid hierarchical structure. In order to assert his dominance over the animals, Freund uses feeding time to act the Alpha by getting to the meat first, according to the Daily Mail.“To earn their respect, one must become a wolf," Freund told the Telegraph. "And that is what I am to them –- their leader."
Wolves, the largest member of the dog family, have long had an "adversarial history" with their human neighbors, according to National Geographic, and have long been considered a villain of the animal kingdom, although they rarely attack humans.

There is nothing peak about human development here.
And this forms no basis for criticizing anything about Nigeria.
There are what they call the hyena men of Nigeria.
I don't think you would describe those as reaching the "peak of human development".

I do think that the kind of stealing that goes on in Nigeria makes the perpetrators lower than animals.
But this particular news article says absolutely nothing about that.
We need to be careful less with throw out the baby with the bathwater in our view of Nigeria.

Wolfs are cute......not like those horrible foxes. Pity we can't have them for pets.....though they'd probabaly take your arm off at the slightest provocation. sad

This has got alot to do with crossing boundaries,a lot to do with human endeavours other than stealling what belongs to others.Other than being a nuisance.His life with those wolves was hanging on a very thin wire,but he did to prove that man can interact with wild animals in the wild and in thei elements.

Wolves are supreme predators that can bring down an unarmed man of his stature in less than five minutes.
