Wolves and humans have had a long history together. In different mythologies, wolves are seen as noble animals that have helped humans in different ways: as guidance, as hunters even as mothers and teachers.

Although very close to their more domesticated cousins, the dogs, wolves have managed to stay wild and free. You can usually see them roam in packs and many times people will use the wolf formation as an example of how people should behave as a group during an exploration or hike.
