A FACT TO HELP YOU: Wolves are generally timid around humans and generally try to avoid contact to the point of abandoning their kills when an approaching human is detected. There are reported circumstances in which wolves have been recorded to act aggressively toward humans. Compared to other carnivorous mammals known to attack humans in general, the frequency with which wolves have been recorded to kill or prey on people is much lower, indicating that though potentially dangerous, wolves are among the least threatening for their size and predatory potential.
