Workers in Canada are amazed when wild arctic wolves approach them at their work yard in rural Nunavut, Canada

A pack of arctic wolves approached workers in a remote part of northern Canada, and every second was caught on camera.

Footage captured in the northern-most part of Nunavut shows three wild wolves inspecting a work yard before ambling over to a group of men and sniffing them.

The filmer said the three animals are from a pack of seven that live locally. “I can’t believe this, this is the closest I’ve been,” he can be heard saying, before adding “I think I’ve tested my luck for the day.” Although the video was originally captured in October 2014 it has only recently emerged online.

    So viscous, all they wanted was a cookie.

  2. I love wolves but it worries me when they become habituated to humans. They are still wild animals and unpredictable and if at any point they show any aggression (maybe due to expecting food) it will be a death sentence for them.

    I believe other works there have been friendly as well as feeding these wolfs. The way the one tried to almost bite the stick that was placed in front of him. As though he was getting something to eat. In my mind the wolf was doing what he did before. And got a bite of food. They have been AROUND PEOPLE BEFORE.

    This is how man domesticated dogs from wolves. Want to know more about wolves and the myths that creates the fear produced by fairy tales and movies. Read Of Wolves and Men by Barry Lopez.

    They wouldn't do this unless there was a food shortage.

    Wolves look well fed, probably from this very work site. The a big bad hunter will come thru to take back "his" territory and spray that handsome white fur with red blood. Sad situation.

    From a response to this video on Facebook

    "This video was taken at CFS Alert. It is a Canadian Military Base. I was stationed there for 6 months. The wolves, foxes, rabbits and musk ox have all learned to get along up there. It is good for 30 days in military detention for feeding or bothering the animals there. The wolves and foxes especially are a very curious lot and often come into the base. The fellow in the video is a bit nervous of course but they tend to sniff alot and then move on. They have been coming around the base since it was built in the 50's and there has never been an agression at any time.

    Even though they come close they do have a healthy fear of the humans. It may not look so in this video but they do. Not to worry, these guys have a healthy diet of Arctic Hares, Lemmings & other such creatures."

    Wow! so jealous! I would pay for an experience like that. Instead of killing them you could make them a tourist attraction. I for one would pay handsomely just to see them in the wild.

  11. Wild, we are. Humans !

    You can take the wild out of the environment but you can't take the wild out of wilderness.

    Somebody had to be feeding them. VERY dangerous. It teaches them to see humans as a food source.

  15. Unknown says:

    That's how we ended up with dogs in the remote past ;-)

  16. Unknown says:

    The wolfs don´t have fear, may be others feet them before and they know, that there is something foot fot them. They must have great hunger to do this...

    Incredible. To bad no one had jerky or something to give as a treat.

  18. I hope these beautiful animals are protected.I am concerned of their lack of fear from man.There are always the haters who would harm them

  19. Tanja says:

    They look really hungry. :'(
