New FDP study about wolves

This new study, which was led by Dorottya Ujfalussy from Eötvös Loránd University in Hungary, tells us something new about wolf behavior, specifically, that wolves can become attached to their human caregivers. “To our knowledge, this study was the first to examine the relationship of intensively socialized hand reared wolves with humans varying in familiarity in a Greeting Situation Test,” says Ujfalussy.

A summary of the results can be read HERE.
