I’ve always been amazed at how much larger and menacing this guys are when compared to even very large, bred-for-tough-looks dogs.
Majestic beasts.

Lucky doggy. Dudes, keep your pets out of the wild, especially if there are larger predators around.

When my dad lived in Alaska he had a dog named Pup who was a pretty brave dog, but when grizzlies would visit the cabin he was smart enough to stay inside…

My first thought was, “WTF are you filming, you heartless bastard?!? Do something!”


#5

Grizzlies are another scale of bear for sure. My (now late) lab cross treed a young black bear at the cottage, which was pretty terrifying, but it ran off as soon as I called him off; “Get over here! Get over here NOW!” Fortunately it was not a baby, so there was no mama around. There was much heroic posing for the rest of the day.

Good wolves. They know how to deal with human-loving traitors.


#7

They should have adopted him into the pack and shown him their ways. For the love of God, they’re WOLVES not animal… nevermind.


#8

Super impressive tactical movement over broken ground by the wolves, really smooth and co-ordinated.

“fearless”? - i dunno - “brave” for sure

“ayfkm, it was a PACK of fucking WOLVES - i was scared shitless - but, i mean, what was i gonna do, let them fucking EAT me? - so, yeah, i barked and ran for it - goddam lucky i remembered that hole in the fence - i need to go lie down”, said Doggo

Your comments reminds me of a less successful dog owner at commanding their dog:

I’m clutching my pearls.

The wolves’ behavior reminded me a lot of stuff I see at dog parks, but they’re not playing around.

Points to the dog for turning around and barking. You can see the wolves are momentarily taken aback.


Imagining scenes like this, with less happy outcomes, going on in my neighborhood, which has A) suburban coyotes, B) lots of Lost Cat posters.

I can hear them now: 'Quisling. Scab. Capitalist running dog."


#14

While those wolves may have been desperately hungry, it is generally considered bad practice to help wild animals recruit prey.


#15

LOL. Spent a few seconds puzzling over what ‘cross treeing’ might be.


#16

The body language of the wolves is more playful than predator - the tail wagging and “bowing” is an invitation to play.


#17

No hole in fence. Wolves don’t trust some fences for some reason, and are afraid to go through them even when they see it done before their eyes.
