A beautiful film of wolves near the Chisty Les Biological Station in Tver region, Russia. Filmed by Vladimir Bologov.

Vladimir Bologov was born in 1965 in Moscow. He is currently biologist at the Central Forest Biosphere Nature Reserve . Since he is 10 years old, Vladimir Bologov has followed his father Viktor on the tracks of wolves.

Based on hunting knowledge of wolves’ suspicion of landscape changes, Viktor proposed a simple method of protection of livestock, consisting in placing unusual objects such as balloons in an area to protect.

Vladimir Bologov inherited a fascination for the predator and took up the torch of his father’s studies. Powerless concerning a modification of the status of the wolf in Russia, Vladimir became a wolves’ advocator in his own way.

In 1993, he started a program of rehabilitation of orphan wolf pups purchased from hunters. Qualified from the Wildlife Biology College in Balashikha , he is currently writing a PhD thesis about the wolf population in Tver region.

Vladimir buys wolf pups each year, raises and returns them to the wild. The following principles are applied during rearing:

1. The wolves must not adapt to humans in any way.
2. The contact with humans must be limited to the absolute minimum necessary.
3. There must be no association with humans and the provision of food.
4. The time in human care must be as short as possible.

    How would he teach them in such a short time? If released as sub adults, others will kill them. How does he introduce them?
