Known as the Wolfman, Freund runs a sanctuary in the small German town of Merzig near the border with Luxembourg, where he walks freely among 29 wolves, wearing an old parachute smock reeking of animal fat and blood.

I love articles that dispel old myths and allow people to see a wonderful new side of wolves.

he knows how to "speak wolf" other people would approch a wolf as if it were a lapdog.

I'd like to see him do this with non sanctuary wolves. were they habituated to humans from birth?
there has to be a huge differnce in imprinting than meeting them as adults.
