Why aren't wolves eaten by humans?
Are Wolves Dangerous to Humans?
A wild wolf usually poses no threat to humans. Wolves are naturally cautious animals who usually avoid encounters with humans. They are simply not interested in us humans - they neither perceive us as prey, nor as conspecifics. It is possible that at an encounter they first secure in order to better assess the situation before they withdraw and that they do not flee in panic, but rather calmly retreat. Puppies can be more curious and less aware than older wolves.
Reports of attacks from earlier centuries can largely be traced back to rabid wolves. Germany has been rabies-free since 2008 as a result of the application of vaccine bait. Predatory attacks - that is, cases in which wolves attack humans in order to eat them - were also considered extreme exceptions in historical records. Predatory wolf attacks are associated with very special environmental conditions. This is possible in areas with a highly fragmented habitat, with extremely low prey populations, with wolves that feed on livestock and waste. In these circumstances, children are in a very vulnerable situation, for example when they are looking after cattle in the forest. In Europe today, the risk that wolves will learn such behavior is very low.
The instinctive caution that wolves show towards humans can, however, be significantly reduced if the animals are specifically attracted or fed. Problematic behavior can then arise.
