The wolves, acquired as cubs from zoos or animal parks, were mostly hand-reared and all know who is boss.The magnificent creatures, naturally feared by any layman, all behave playfully and submissively towardsWerner, who has over the years exerted his dominance in the pack.
The enclosure at Wolfspark Werner Freund, in Merzig, in the German province of Saarland, containswolves from six different packs across the world.They include European, Siberian, Canadian, Artic and Mongolian regions. Some of which look fairlysimilar, but the snowy white Arctic wolves are the most distinguishable from the rest.
Werner exerts his dominance at feeding time, ensuring he is the firstto get his teeth into some raw meatKnowing their place in the pack, the hungry wolves can do little more thanwatch on, while salivating, as Werner tucks into a deer's leg

Once Werner has had his fill, the lower ranking wolvescan finally move in and begin to devour the carcassThe hungry Mongolian wolves finally get their fill and devour the entire deer cadaverAt feeding time, Werner must ensure he continues to feed first and disallows any of the hungry andsalivating wolves to come near, in order to maintain the respect of the pack.
It is for this reason that they do not attack him and, instead, lick his face and act playfully when theyare not feeding.
When they are not feeding, the pack show their affection for their leader,staying close and acting playful
