Fuck, you guys. It’s late in the day here on the East Coast, I just paid my credit card bill, and I have to go home and deal with the wasp nest I found in my living room this morning. But I’m not alone in my misery, and neither are you. Allow me to introduce you to a lazy ass wolf who sounds like Chewbacca after…
The dog lives, but this video is still a graphic and potentially disturbing look inside what a wolf attack really looks like.
Around 100 red wolves roam wild in North Carolina, but not for much longer if the state government has its way. Pending federal approval, they plan to round them up and force them into captivity.
Did you know there were wolves roaming freely in North Carolina? Neither did we, so we set out to learn more about this rarest of canids: the Red Wolf.
The alpha wolf is a figure that looms large in our imagination. The notion of a supreme pack leader, who fought his way to dominance and reigns superior to the other wolves in his pack, is huge in pop culture. And this idea informs how many people understand wolf behavior. But the alpha wolf doesn't exist—at least,…
Remember the "wandering wolf," OR-7, who traveled from Oregon to California and back while wearing a GPS collar? The US Fish and Wildlife Service discovered that he's now a proud dad to at least three pups, thanks to some camera trap photos.
Canada's wildlife is at it again, but this time they're playing out a classic scene from literature. It's The Count of Monte Cristo, or perhaps The Shawshank Redemption, zoo style.
Call them what you want — Coywolf, Coyote/Wolf Hybrid, Freakin' Terrifying — but the fact is, we've got a new predator and it lives in our forests, our suburbs and even our cities.
Chester Starr of the Heiltsuk First Nation knows that the wolves of British Columbia come in two varieties: timber wolves on the mainland and coastal wolves on the islands. Genetic research has finally confirmed what Starr's tribe has always known.
Which country in Western Europe has more wolves than Montana, Idaho and Wyoming combined? Spain. What follows is my experience finding the wolves and how you can too.
Not native to the east coast and with no predators there, coyotes have cross-bred with wolves and spread down the eastern sea board. Now, they even inhabit Washington DC's Rock Creek Park.
In Reserve, New Mexico, children huddle together inside "kid cages" while waiting for the school bus. The wood and mesh structures, pictured below, were ostensibly built to protect young ones from being preyed upon by local wolf populations. Sound ridiculous? That's because it is.
Wolf howls are among the most recognizable—and, depending on one's situation, most fearsome—sounds in the wild, with their low pitch and long duration making them the perfect form of natural long-distance communication. But just why do wolves want to reach out to one another over the vast expanses of forest and tundra?
The alpha wolf is a figure that looms large in our imagination. The notion of a supreme pack leader who fought his way to dominance and reigns superior to the other wolves in his pack informs both our fiction and is how many people understand wolf behavior. But the alpha wolf doesn't exist—at least not in the wild.
Hemlock Grove just gave us our latest iteration of the on-screen werewolf, but it's by no means the strangest. Here are some of the odder takes on these furry faced children of the night.
A lethal dose of caffeine is thought to be roughly 10 grams — about the mass of your standard #2 pencil. That converts to a whopping (but basically undrinkable) 4.69 gallons of coffee, or 120 standard cans of Red Bull. Still, 2012 saw several deaths linked to energy drinks in the United States — five were attributed…
Do not cross Aishat Maksudova. The Russian grandmother was tending to her livestock when a wolf attacked her village of Novo Biryuzyak, Dagestan. So she cooly axed it in the head.
Arya Stark wouldn't dare put up posters to look for her lost direwolf Nymeria, not after that incident with Joffrey's arm, but if she thought she could get away with it (and if Sansa was willing to do the illustrations), perhaps her lost wolf poster would be as charming as Maritsa Patrinos'.
This skull once belonged to somebody's pet, over 33,000 years ago. It's one of the earliest known examples of the domestication of dogs — and it might actually mean modern dogs aren't all related to each other after all.
Wolves are considered unusually intelligent animals because their packs seem to use complex communication and strategy. But a computer simulation reveals even the most complicated hunting pattern can be explained by two instinctual behaviors. This is bad news for animal intelligence.
