A human can befriend a wolf especially if you've been around the wolf at a young age.

However you can also befriend some wolves even when they are older.

Wolves while they are wild animals and can be dangerous the wolf can also be a friendly animal towards humans and some humans have bonded with wolves.

How did humans befriend wolves?

Some people think early human hunter-gatherers actively tamed and bred wolves.

Other people say wolves domesticated themselves, by scavenging the carcasses left by human hunters, or loitering around campfires, growing tamer with each generation until they became permanent companions.

Just be aware that it's illegal to keep true wolves as pets in America.

However, a wolf must be more than 98% pure to count as a wolf, which leaves a lot of room for hybrid animals under federal law.

That doesn't mean you can go out and get a wolf-dog today as a pet.

Wolves are fiercely loyal to their pack, they are the ultimate team players.

Many sports teams, families and businesses could learn a thing or two from the teamwork that wolves demonstrate.
