Descrizione

Meyer's Kleines konversations-lexikon:-der wolf ist haufig in Ost und Nordeuropa, Mittel-und Nordasien, Nordamerika, seltener in Frank reich and Belgien, den Herden gefahrlich, besonders in Russland. Encyc. Brit., XXIV under Wolf: — In northern countries the wolf is generally larger and more powerful than in the southern portion of its range. Its habits are similar everywhere. It has from time immemorial been known to man in all the countries it inhabits as the devastator of his flocks of sheep. It has speed and remarkable endurance. They usually assemble in tr00ps or packs, except in summer, and by their combined and persevering efforts are able to overpower and kill even such great animals as the American bison. Children and even grown people are not infrequently attacked by them When pressed for hunger. The ferocity of the wolf in the wild state is proverbial. Even when tamed, they can rarely be trusted by strangers.
