What is more dangerous to humans, a grizzly bear or a pack.
By the 1970s, the fear of wolves was largely counteracted by the emergence of a pro-wolf lobby aiming to change public attitudes towards wolves, with the phrase “there has never been a documented case of a healthy wild wolf attacking a human in North America” (or variations thereof) becoming a slogan for people seeking to create a more positive image for the wolf.

How many wolves attack humans? It was the first fatal wolf attack in Alaska, and only the second documented case of a wild wolf killing a human in North America. There are an estimated 60,000 to 70,000 wolves in North America, including 7,700 to 11,200 in Alaska.
African wild dogs, like most wild canines, prefer to stay as far away from humans as possible. They don't even go after livestock unless there's a shortage of their usual prey. If they do encounter humans, they would only attack if cornered. In reality, it's humans that are much more dangerous.
According to professor Wynne from Arizona State University, most wolves do not usually act as friendly as those at the sanctuary in Washington. However, ” a wild animal can, with skill and patience, be raised to be willing to react in a friendly way towards humans.”.
Almost every country with wild wolves, compensates farmers for any livestock lost to a wolf attack. Surely it’s possible that we could do the same thing.

Wolves are much more likely to attack a lone individual than a group of people. If you find yourself in a group and under attack by a wolf, or pack of wolves, group yourselves together with children, elderly, or injured persons at the centre of the group.
