Can a wolf be tamed?

It is possible to tame a wolf by giving it bones. A domesticated wolf will not accept any more bones. It should be noted that the quantity of bones necessary is arbitrary; each bone has a one-third probability of taming the wolf. If the wolf is tamed, it is given a red collar and is required to sit while not swimming. If the collar becomes worn out, then the wolf should be released.

The wolf is a very loyal and loving animal, which makes it attractive for training. Although it is natural for wolves to be aggressive towards other animals, this trait can be suppressed through intensive training. There are several schools of thought on whether or not it is possible to train wolves properly enough to live with humans. Some experts believe that it is possible, but others argue that the wolf's nature must be taken into account and that it is better to let them roam free.

In recent years, there have been reports of wolves being kept as pets in Japan. Because Japanese law does not allow dogs and cats to be kept as pets, these wolves were illegally imported from Canada and Russia. Even though they were bred in captivity, they still had inherited traits from their wild ancestors and this made them behave like wolves. They would chase cars and people, and even kill small animals if no one stopped them. Eventually, everyone realized what was happening and stopped buying these puppies. But by then, it was too late: the trade in wolf babies had died down, and there were no more available for sale.

Can Native Americans own wolves?

Yes. Wolves can be tamed but are not domesticated (i.e., humans have no control over their reproduction). Thus, a Native American could keep a wolf as a pet.

Wolves were used by some Native Americans for hunting purposes. A wolf pack would corner a deer or other animal and then drive it to the edge of a cliff or into a river where there was no chance of survival. The hunter would arrive just in time to see the kill done by his/her friends. This was called "wolf-hunting" or "coyote hunting".

There are several stories told about Native Americans taking care of wolves. In one story, a girl found a wounded wolf on her farm. She took care of it until it got better and then put it in a box with some corn so it would feel at home when it was placed back in its natural habitat. When the girl's father saw what she had done, he was afraid that the wolf would eat their cows or else run away so he decided to send him back to the forest.

In another story, a boy helped a wolf escape from someone who wanted to use it for hunting. Then the boy tied up the wolf and brought it to his mother who cooked it for dinner.

Has anyone ever tamed a wolf?

The fact is that domesticating an animal in a single generation is impossible (or even a few). While it is true that wolves may be tamed, it is not an easy task. Unfortunately, even if a human can tame a wolf or wolfdog, there is still a great deal of unpredictability owing to the wolf's or wolfdog's maintained wild impulses.

When people say they have tamed a wolf or wolfdog, what they usually mean is that the wolf or wolfdog has learned to obey some commands. Most often, this means that someone can control where it goes by giving the dog a walk or a ride in a car. Sometimes this means that the wolf can be trained to do specific tasks, such as guide a blind person through a dark area or pull a cart.

However, even though wolves may be tamed, it does not mean that they are friendly with humans. They may seem like nice dogs, but they are still animals and will always have a natural fear of people unless given time to get used to us.

In fact, there are actually two types of wolves: socialized wolves that live in packs and unsocialized wolves that live alone. As you can see, taming a wolf cannot make it any less of an animal. It will always be prone to violence if not given time to adjust to its new master.

Also, despite what you might have heard, wolves are not able to be trained to work with disabled people.
