The ancestor of our dog, the carnivorous wolf is also related to animals such as the coyote, fox, and dingo. Wolves are endangered, but humans are beginning to open their eyes to previous mistakes and helping wolves make a comeback. Wolves live in packs with a hierarchy, consisting of the only mating pair, the alpha male and female, followed by the beta pair to take over in case something happens to the alpha(s). The lowest in rankings are the omega. Omegas eat last and can be treated very poorly.
Wolves generally hunts rabbits, deer, elk, and sometimes moose. There has never been a recorded attack on a human by a healthy wolf in North America. Myths with wolves may have arisen when humans in witnessed wolves eating the corpses of other humans, who died of other causes. Upon sight of humans, most wolves will run.
There are many types of wolves, including grey wolves (canis lupus) and red/Mexican wolves (canis rufus).
