"Eventually brave zoo workers formed a human chain and rushed the wolves, forcing them back.

Jan Tengeborg, who organised the attempt to recover the body, said: "We couldn't get into the enclosure because the wolves clearly did not want us in there. You can't just walk right into a wolf pack."

How about, "I grabbed a couple of firearms and started shooting the killing bastards. At that time the wolves had no issues with us getting to the victim" ?

It boggles the mind that they didn't have some feeding method set up that didn't involve being inside the enclosure with the animals. Or if they did, it wasn't being strictly enforced.

The opposite's probably true. These wolves have probably been around to many humans and lost the normal "don't attack things bigger than you" impulse.

But even still, walking into an enclosure with eight wolves is always a risk. I love wolves, but I wouldn't ever knowingly walk into a pack's den. Feed'm with a pulley and tranq them if its vet time. Otherwise leave them alone.

Put wolves in a zoo display, that's going to happen anyway. Put 8 rottweilers in a zoo pen and they'd go go nasty on you too, better they were trained somewhat.

Scary indeed. Scarier still is a "professional" who would enter the enclosure of a pack of hungry carnivores to feed them. Scarier yet is the decision of the zoo not to destroy any of the wolves which have now tasted human flesh and has learned humans make great food. You know, just on the highly unlikely chance that one or more of these animals might get out of captivity. Of course, the zoo surely has a foolproof security program, right?

Sometimes you have to go into the enclosure to get the poops.

In America, carnivores are shuttled around in into rear chambers while work is done on their enclosure. They're also double fenced, so that even if you ARE feeding them by directly pushing the bowl, they still can't take swipes at you.

Only one way to teach a pack of wolves... kill their leader first, then cut him up and make wolf-burgers on a grill in front of the pack. Eat the burgers, and then kill the second wolf. Rinse and repeat until done.

That's what a PACK of wolves do. A single wolf will rarely attack something significantly larger than itself.

That being said a 110 lb wolf might just be bigger than a female zookeeper.

But yet it's great to reintroduce wolves into the US to kill livestock and elk and deer herds. Wolves only reduce game animals which are tasty and bring in more revenue. Wolves can't be eaten , and breed much faster than their prey. If I ever see a wolf or black bear in my backyard I'll pay the fine for shooting it to protect my 10 year old from being dragged away. And yes I know black bears are not typically aggressive, but they have started to move into my area very quickly in the past few years.

And yes I know black bears are not typically aggressive, but they have started to move into my area very quickly in the past few years.

Just curious, but why can't a wolf be eaten? Seems it would have a better flavor than most of the other canine species, what with being out in the wild and all.


Well, mostly we dont eat predators because the trophic cycle makes it not worth it to farm them. But i was under the impression that, except for certain species of fish, predators generally taste lousy compared to their prey. But again, because of the trophic cycle, farming certain species of fish just doesnt make a lot of sense...

NewportBarGuy: knbber2: How about, "I grabbed a couple of firearms and started shooting the killing bastards. At that time the wolves had no issues with us getting to the victim" ?

Or... machetes, pieces of pipe, a 2x4?


Or even a hose. Spray them with a good jet of water, they'd leave that body PDQ.

However, one does not walk blindly into a wolf pack.

Here in Denmark we have a TV programme called "Kill and eat" (actually a more accurate translation would be "Snuff and devour"). The premise is that a hunter/nature guide and a chef goes out to hunt for a specific game animal and if they don't get their target they have brought a backup in the form of an animal you wouldn't traditionaly eat. The animal is then cooked in camp over a campfire
So far at least red fox and beech marten have proven to be delicious, when the hunt for game animals failed :-)

I'm always sad to hear about an event like this. Zookeeping is a dangerous business. You have to be smart about handling animals, even if you have a "good relationship" with them, accidents can happen. Admittedly, it's part of the thrill of the job. You really do always have to be on your guard, ready for any emergency

rebelyell2006: Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: As a society, aren't we beyond trapping wild animals in compact enclosures and putting them on display for our personal amusement?

Zoos are insanely educational. I would prefer keeping zoos since they improve society.


if we can give the animals an adequate substitute for their natural habitat then i'm basically on board. wolves will sometimes roam 35 miles a day. there is no way we should be keeping them in zoo enclosures. same goes for pretty much all aquatic mammals.

caging wild animals for "educational" purposes is the height of human hubris.

I'm ashamed to call her a member of my species. As an apex predator I expected more from her. Ah, well.

Except there is a very good reason that female zookeepers have to be more careful and mindful than males... at certain times,

This reminds me of that Shark Week show in which a bull shark expert is standing around thigh-deep in the ocean, surrounded by bull sharks, casually explaining to Nigel Whatshisname that the sharks are not a danger because blah blah blah. Then one chomps on his calf.

Mission accomplished.


Guess they should fire their chef.

From Halloween 2011. Was raised among humans and is safe with children and pets. Except cats.

Nonetheless any wolf or dog can act completely different when in a pack. I've seen dogs that would not hurt anything when alone tear apart other dogs, goats, whatever when with a killer pack.

The one on the left...with the tattoo. I'm picturing him as a werewolf with a spot shaved in his fur, fresh from the tattoo artist, and a plastic cone around his neck...

I've always wondered that about were-people, too. What happens to tattoos, piercings, and other body alterations when they change into their animal form? Especially nipple and genital piercings.
