Tip #9 – You Cannot Tame A Wolf
Researchers have determined that it is impossible to instantly domesticate a wolf pup. Even pups raised from birth on hand feeding are too wild to be pets. Cubs thought to have been tamed started to hunt other pets within the house, farm animals, and in some cases, even children. They challenged those appearing to be authority figures, becoming more dominant socially in an effort to seize more control.
While tame wolf puppies can be taught to understand simple acts of obedience, as adults they refuse to recognize them, challenging humans who try to impose authority over them instead. In several reports, wolves that had been believed to be tamed suddenly lashed out and attacked their owners.
