For the past 40-odd years, German wolf researcher Werner Freund has operated a wolf sanctuary in Saarland, Germany, where he has personally reared more than 70 animals. Despite being nearly 80 years old, Werner acts as the “alpha male” of six distinct packs and spends his days wrestling with his animals in the snow, feeding them raw meat out of his own mouth and even sleeping with them.
Werner Freund says he had to become part wolf to interact with the animals he researches.
In 1972, Freund acquired the land to build his Wolfspark as a loan from the city of Merzig. The reserve currently houses 29 Mongolian and Arctic wolves. Most of the wolves were reared by him and were acquired from zoos or animal parks as cubs.
WOW..HE REALLY GETS IN THERE TO BE APART OF THE PACKS…
