Human As A Part Of The Wolf Pack


Would you like to know how wolves live by staying in their pack? Well, it's proven that they can accept people who learned to behave in a right way. Meet a zoologist Jason Badridze who grew up several generations of wolf cubs and taught them to escape hunters and people in general.

Jason Badridze is a cult figure among ethologists. He has lived in a wolf pack for several years and managed to transfer important knowledge to the wolves and borrow the animals' culture. What he says reminds of a fairy-tale making us remember those times when people and animals could understand each other. When Jason was a little boy his father often took him for camping. After the boy heard the howl of a wolf he was fascinated by it and his life changed forever. Having become a scientist he decided to stay with wolves for a couple of years to understand their mode of behavior as dogs lost many behavioral features. First, he found a path that was widely used by one group of wolves.

He waited for white baby linen to absorb his body odor and left its pieces on the road. Wolves are scared of everything new but feel like investigating it. First they ignored the linen pieces but later started tearing them apart. Soon they didn't even mind eating meat from these pieces. 4 months had passed and Jason decided to meet the wolves. He waited for them on the path and coming back wolves approached him very close checking his reaction. Jason wasn't going either to attack or run away. He passed the test when the animals understood he had no weapons with him. But it took long  before they could accept the man.

      The problem is, that part wolf is gonna want to have part of you too. They are out there, but they tend to be a be more “wild” than regular dogs. Be careful what you ask for.

      I know they sell them in the US, but they’re only like 25% or so wolf. More than that (what ever the % is) they can be dangerous.

    • testicules says:

      They cost about $500

    It’s interesting that a guy can do this. It’s been done before, I recently read about a guy in the US that lived with a wolf pack. And the Alpha wolves treated him just like a wolf.

    She even clamped down on his head when he (unknowingly) tried to eat out of turn. Being a new member, he had to eat what was left, what they “gave” him. Eating before his turn, came close to getting him killed.

    Very interesting story, wish I could remember more.

    But anyway, it’s interesting you can do this with a wolf pack, but if you tried doing this with say a bear, you’d end up dead.

    There was a story about a guy that tried just that, living with bears. The guy was off his rocker, but filmed him out there trying to “save the bears.” One day they couldn’t find him, and found where the bears had just about completely ate him.

    It goes to show the sort of symbiotic relationship of “dog”(wolf) and man.

    I don’t think there’s very many wild animals like this, you could live with. I can’t think of any. Lions? nope. You could hang around them, filming and stuff, but you would not part of their pride.

    Wow, amazing story.

  7. Cpt. Obvious says:

    “Only every 4th hunt can be successful. They also hide their meat but never remember the place it was hidden at. The meat is always found by cubs who won’t be hungry due to that. Cubs need to be taught hunting. Otherwise they can kill a rat while playing and die from hunger next to it.”

    Please rewrite that section, this is not proper English.

  8. gen. Kharkov says:

    This story seems to be a summary of an interview from rusrep.ru. Pitifully, it’s absolutely ruined by inadequate use of language.

  9. gen. Kharkov says:

    This resulted from inadequate translation. Mr. Badrize would never say such a thing.

    I’m from Portugal and in my country wolfs are protected by law and it’s forbidden to hunt for them.
    If a wolf kills some live stock the state pays an indemnization to the owner. but rarely wolfs get near humans. actually very few animals get killed by wolfs, more are killed by wild dogs. it’s more like a myth that wolfs are bad and kill live stock.
    Wolfs only get near humans when they are really really hungry, that’s because their habitat are being destroyed and because their most common prays are diminishing in population. That’s why an important part of the conservationist effort is to leave dead animal carcasses in the florests to let the wolfs feed from them, that’s very important since unfortunately wolfs can’t relay anymore on only hunting their prays for food.

    In the past wolfs were killed in revenged but nowadays no one is killed. The population has grown and it’s no longer a critically endangered specie.
    Public awareness to the conservation effort has raised and wolfs are now seen as a source of income by ecoturism. Farmers who used to killed wolfs are now protecting them and teaching children about ecology.

    A true story of success that should be followed.
