Do wolves attack humans?

wwuk-1Wolves are known by researchers to be one of the shyest of all animals in the northern wilderness and that they have high fear of humans and will walk away, even if you approach one of their kills. In 1990, a large pack of wolves moved into an Alaskan suburb of over a quarter of a million people, with not a single human was harmed by the wolves.

In India, there have been isolated occasions when ‘feral’ children have been attacked on human garage tips, maybe they were seen as competitors for the same food source. Otherwise, there are very few occasions when this has occurred and often these can be contributed to human error. Unfortunately, the myth of the wolf as a rabid man-eater still prevails.
