Surive a pack of wovlves

"Don't" Do

  1. DON'T RUN - This can make you look like prey and might trigger the hunting instinct in the wolf. If you run you're asking to be attacked.
  2. Don't stare down the wolf - This is the act of maintaining eye contact. This can be interrupted as a challenge to the wolf and you can be perceived as a threat.
  3. Don't turn your back - It's the same thing as running.
  4. Don't fall or bend down too long - I know, easier said than done. This will make you look smaller and like an easier target. Obviously, this is bad.


Things to "Do"

  1. Back away slowly - Don't run, don't turn your back. Keep the wolf or wolves in front of you, not making eye contact.
  2. Shout and make noise - This will make you seem scarier. Hopefully this helps get the wolves away. Throw sticks and rocks at the wolf too.
  3. Stand tall - make yourself seem larger, put your arms above your head. Let the animal know that you aren't an easy target and you won't go down without a fight.
  4. Fight Back - If attacked, aim for the nose and face with whatever you can. Get a stick. Don't let them get behind you.
  5. Find a defensible position - If you manage to scare off the wolf, climb a tree or find a tall object to climb on. Be alert! Where there is one there are normally more.

Wolves are so powerful,

they barely even have to wrestle with dogs, they just grab hold and walk away.
