87,204.  All day he ran.  He did not rest.  He seemed made to run on forever.  His iron-like body ignored fatigue.  And even after fatigue came, his heritage of endurance braced him to endless endeavour, and enabled him to drive his complaining body onward.  (Run & Wolf)  Jack London, White Fang 1905

70,673.  Listen to them – children of the night.  What music they make.  (Dracula & Wolf)  Bram Stoker, Dracula, Dracula to Jonathan

93,565.  All stories are about wolves.  All worth repeating, that is.  Anything else is sentimental drivel ... Think about it.  There’s escaping from the wolves, fighting the wolves, capturing the wolves, taming the wolves.  Being thrown to the wolves, or throwing others to the wolves so the wolves will eat them instead of you.  Running with the wolf pack.  Turning into a wolf.  Best of all, turning into the head wolf.  No other decent stories exist.  Margaret Atwood, The Blind Assassin 2000

 

 

93,566.  They are an effective, widespread, and basic predator.  They are not very good adapting to change.  Wolves are often referred to as an indicator species, which means that any little deterioration of their habitat causes immediate drop in their numbers in that habitat.  They don’t seem to be able to adjust to expanding civilization the way coyotes do.  The coyote’s range is increasing in the face of human expansion, while the wolf’s is decreasing.  Raymond & Lorna Coppinger, Dogs 2001
