Re: What would u do if you see a wolf pup

Honestly, I have an idea that someone hasn't posted yet...

It depends on where I found it. If it were out in the middle of a forest, then I would probably call the local rangers about the animal and ask if it was supposed to be here. (it might actually be miles away from a wolf-area). If it were in say, Yellowstone, I would leave it. If it were in a city, though, I would probably take it home and call some local animal-people to take it to an area where it can run free.

I am working towards a Wolf Santuary for abused wolf-dogs and wolves, but currently I don't have one. I have a small backyard, and quite frankley not enough money to house a wolf pup. And anyway, there are children under the age of nine currently living in my house, including a small dog and an elderly cat. We also live in a pretty closed-in neighborhood. This is the exact oposite of a wolf-raising enviroment

I understand, but I would wait a few hours and then check back on it.
If it's still there and there is no sign of it's parents near it, I would take the wolf pupa dn bring it to a wildlife center and let them care for it and set it free.

As the wildlife center might be able to care for it, they won't be able to set it free, as it won't know how to hunt and other necessary things to survive.

I agree with

Considering how dangerous and selfish it would be for me to take in a wild animal that isn't seemingly injured or orphaned, I'd leave it.
And if it was an orphaned or ill pup (and I was somehow totally sure of that), I would take it in, but only so I could contact professionals who could properly and legally provide it with the care it needs.
Wolves are super duper average and okay animals.

  • I'd leave it be.
    There is no need to involve yourself with it, unless it looks like it is in serious danger or terribly ill.

I agree with
La Striata.
Sometimes what you said is not right.
If the keepers of the wolf pup hardly give it any attention and/or human interaction,
and quickly kept moving to to bigger sanctuaries with larger, more natural prey, than
it might be possible to successfully release wolf pup into the wild.

I partly agree with wolvesFTW-_-145,
Although if you do spot a wild wolf pup alone NEVER
just go and take it to your home. It's NOT like a big, boisterous
dog. They have wild instincts and will DESTROY YOUR HOME, and you
CANNOT TRAIN THEM.
Although, I usually wouldn't just leave them hangin'.

It wont be able to hunt for itself. If a wolf is in a sanctuary and its a pup its going to need a lot of human interaction or it will surely die, since there has to be someone to feed it.

Silver is correct. Most animals kept young by humans will never be able to survive in the wild because they haven't been taught to hunt or stay alive.

Leaving it is the right thing to do. Nature is nature. Get rid of the weak ones so that the strong live. Its life.
I would probably take it home and call some local animal-people to take it to an area where it can run free.
It would most likely be put down.

No. A wolf wouldn't take care of another's pup. It takes resources and plus, the wolf will most likely run away the moment it smells you, if you are even able to find a wolf to "take care of the pup."

I'm no sure if a wolf will take care of a pup in that situation either. In a sanctuary, it would mostly be humans handling it to make sure that the pup wouldn't get hurt by other wolves.

I think you have a little too much faith in the benevolent nature of wolves. Wolves are highly territorial, and are more likely to kill strangers than adopt them.
I cannot see that wolves are in any way nobler in character than hyenas- Frederick Selous

Still; I only feel that it could be possible. I've read stories of other animals doing that in magazines produced by NG - so I'd say it might be possible for wolves.
