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.  Jack London, White Fang, 1905

 

 

Wolves: These in northern Canada are the largest and most powerful in the world.  David Attenborough, Frozen Planet I, BBC 2011

 

 

Times are harder for the wolves here in the high Arctic.  David Attenborough, Frozen Planet III: Summer

 

 

There are more than two thousand grey wolves in the great forest.  David Attenborough, Nature’s Great Events II: The Great Salmon Run, BBC 2009

 

 

The Ethiopian wolf.  The only wolf in the whole of Africa.  David Attenborough, Life e7: Hunters and Hunted, BBC 2009

 

Within only a few years the wolves were thriving, part once more of the entire Yellowstone eco-system.  ibid.

 

 

Here in the heart of Africa lives one of this great continent’s most extraordinary yet misunderstood animals.  Animals that only thrive through remarkable teamwork.  And through the strength and skill of their leaders.  Painted wolves, once known as Cape hunting dogs, are one of Africa’s most threatened.  David Attenborough, Dynasties IV: Painted Wolf, BBC 2018

 

 

Listen to them – children of the night.  What music they make.  Bram Stoker, Dracula, Dracula to Jonathan

 

 

So flies the reckless shepherd from the wolf.  William Shakespeare, Richard Duke of York V vi 7, King Henry to Richard of Gloucester

In October 1920 two little girls were discovered near Calcutta by a clergyman.  The girls lived in this orphanage.  Its now in ruins.  But local school children are drawn to it for a poignant history lesson.  The two little girls are said to have been brought up by wolves.  Stories from the newspapers spoke of their animal habits.  Of their fierce natures.  They ran around on all fours.  Arthur C Clarkes Mysterious Universe, ITV 1994

 

 

Everyone knew there were wolves in the mountains, but they seldom came near the village – the modern wolves were the offspring of ancestors that had survived because they had learned that human meat had sharp edges.  Terry Pratchett, Equal Rites

 

 

That night the wind was howling almost like a wolf and there were some real wolves off to the west giving it lessons.  George R R Martin, A Storm of Swords  

 

 

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

 

 

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

 

 

The Mid-West: Maybe a terrifying myth come to life: eye-witnesses report seeing a menacing beast with dark hair walking on its hind legs and standing over seven feet tall.  The creature is said to kill using deadly fangs and razor-sharp claws.  It has the strength to subdue animals up to twelve-hundred pounds.  And it emits blood-curdling howls.  MonsterQuest s1e9: America’s Wolfman, History 2021    

 

 

Farmers claim a terrifying creature is attacking their children.  Destination Truth s4e4, Skyfy 2010 

 

An outbreak of violent incidents along the River Nile just west of Luxor near the village of Armant.  Witnesses blame these attacks on something they call the Sal’awa, Arabic for scary wolf.  ibid.
