It’s hunting season you’re searching for that perfect trophy and possibly dinner. But you’re not the only one with a pack to feed. These hunting grounds belong along to someone else. Here’s how to survive a wolf attack.
Wolf attacks are a rare occurrence with only 49 documented cases in Alaska and Canada from 1942 to 2002. But as long as man encroaches on nature, that can change. In 2019, Russ Fee awoke to screams from a neighboring campsite. He found a wolf dragging a man by his arm v and kicked the wolf in the hip. That worked against one wolf. What if you were surrounded by a whole pack?

Where am I vulnerable? How fast can a wolf run? Some humans have spent their entire lives in the wilderness without ever spotting this elusive predator. But with hunting pushing their population to the brink of extinction and man further infringing on their territory, wolf sightings have increased. So if faced a snout with this deadly canine here’s what you can do to turn things around.

Step One

act submissive and don’t run wolves often hunt their prey by chasing it. Running away could trigger their instinct to chase you down in a short burst. A grey wolf can sprint up to 65 km h your cardio classes haven’t prepared you for this foot race. To avoid any escalation, don’t make eye contact as this can be interpreted as a direct challenge. Keep your head lowered and bowed slightly.

Step Two

Assert your dominance if the wolf continues to come closer, immediately raise your arms above your head, rise to your full height, clap your hands and shout aggressively. To a wolf, this loud display could be viewed as claiming your territory. It may not scare it away, but it might buy you some extra time to escape.

Step Three

Back away slowly as the wolf approaches, back away slowly but don’t turn your back on it. Keep calm and stay balanced as you walk carefully backwards. Falling down will make you an easy target like a turtle on its back. If possible, try to approach a group of people or find a nearby fire. Wolves hate fire and will back off as they get closer to the smoke and if you’re feeling really limber, you may also want to climb that tree behind you. Remember to stay facing the wolf.

Step Four

Curl into a fetal position if the wolf plunges at you, protect your jugular as wolves attack the neck and throats of their prey for a quick and easy kill. The tips of a gray wolf’s canine teeth can produce a pressure of almost 500 newtons, making short work of bones and exposed flesh. Staying in a protected position will at least keep your final spot safe from this carnivore’s powerful jaws.

Step Five

Strike with nearby objects fighting back can prove to the wolf that you are not an easy meal. Throw rocks. Sticks. Whatever you have at hand and aim for its sensitive face showing you won’t go down without a fight could be enough to make the wolf question the confrontation and retreat

Step Six

Protect the wolves instinctively attack the weakest of the pack this puts small children. The elderly and the injured at greatest risk band together in a circle and keep the most vulnerable people in the center of the group don’t break ranks and make sure there’s a person watching in every direction to monitor any perimeter area wolf Activity wolves rarely attack humans in the wild but should you wander near their dens or breeding grounds. You could be perceived as a threat watch for their signs such as assorted sizes of wolf droppings on the ground. Gnawed bones and plastic litter listen to their vocalizations of barking or repeated howling and always keep an eye out for their tracks so you escaped that wolf by backing away and acting big but what happened to the campsite? Where is everyone? How are you going to survive? Have lost in this forest? Lace up your boots and get your compass handy we have the answer on the next how to survive.
