Photo was taken in West Yellowstone, Montana USA. We know wolves as some of the most ferocious animals however while this is true in specific situations they are also some of most affectionate animals I have ever seen. It is hard to believe that both qualities of a vicious beast and the gentleness of the most affectionate animal exists in the same animal, the wolves. The vicious character comes out when the wolves are hungry and the loving character is displayed toward members of their own pack while they are not hungry. I watched the wolves for several hours in multiple occasions and saw both behaviors with my own eyes.
