操场哥 [网易浙江省杭州市网友]:

The mountain has been blasted apart to make roads, the trees chopped to make Da Vinci furniture, so the wolves no longer have a way to survive, and have no choice but to come out to eat/attack people.

Uh oh, Little Grey is now an orphan.

曾经的蟀哥 [网易江西省九江市网友]:

Grey Wolf hasn’t returned home for a long time. Red Wolf waited for her husband a long time before coming down the mountain alone to search for him, not expecting that she too would be captured. The fear in their hearts has ultimately come true.

Suggest they be sent to a wildlife preserve, can you not kill them, okay?

fa041784 [网易山东省潍坊市网友]:

Police comrades, don’t you guys feel shameless? Even publicizing catching a wolf?!!! If you have any worth, go catch some criminals for the ordinary common people to see. Having the face to publicize this nonsense. Just report it, no need to make a big deal out of it.

mymodel [网易上海市宝山区网友]:

From the wolves’ perspective, this large grey wolf’s death was too heroic, not hesitating to go up against the planet’s most savage and brutal animal, humans, for its hungry wife and children, ultimately bravely sacrificing itself at the hands of many, outmatched and overwhelmed, while the she-wolf comes down the mountain searching for her husband and is also caught, leaving behind a den of pups to wander alone in this world.

网易英国网友 [zxtuy1234gc]:

Wild animals that have hurt humans must not be freed and must be shot dead, dogs as well.
After tasting human flesh, humans enter their menu, and they will kill people like they kill rabbits.

minnie555 [网易福建省福州市网友]: (responding to above)

Sending it to a zoo is the proper thing to do, sigh, don’t kill it. It’s hungry. It had no choice. Or maybe it was hurt before, and that’s why it attacked humans.

Shandong Zaozhuang catches white wolf follow-up: Netizen claims it is his husky dog

March 23rd morning, Shandong Zaozhuang Tengzhou police caught another wolf. Zoo personnel determined it to be a she-wolf approximately 5 years old. However, netizen Mr. Wang instead claims the so-called “mother wolf” is actually his own 5-year-old husky pet dog, named Lady, with a docile personality, who had accidentally run out of his home. At present, Mr. Wang is negotiating with the zoo in hopes of bringing his pet dog home as soon as possible.

Shandong Zaozhuang: Whether captured “she-wolf” is a dog or not requires DNA testing

Recently, Shandong Zaozhuang also caught a white-colored “mother wolf”. However, a netizen claims the “wolf mother” is actually his own husky pet dog. As a result, Zaozhuang city Forestry Department Forestry Protection Station station master Zhang Changpu says whether the captured “mother wolf” is a wolf or a dog still requires DNA testing, and invites an expert to conduct a test on the “wolf mother”.

A moment of silence for the Husky, you better prepare yourself to be a wolf. You falling into the hands of this bullshit expert, who for his this stupid cunt, for his own face [pride], can say you are a pig and you’ll have to accept it.

旮旯答卡啦 [网易黑龙江省网友]:

Aren’t you a stupid cunt now, whether or not it is a husky all you have to do is give it some fruit, raw meat, and cooked meat. See which one it’ll eat, no need for DNA testing, fucking it would be better to raise a husky than fucking raising you so-called experts. Truly a bunch of shit-making machines, fuck!

      Why do hippies suck? Because they care about creatures other than themselves? Hippies are the same people who got out there and protested for freedom and human rights. So how do they suck?

      • moop

        “Hippies are the same people who got out there and protested for freedom and human rights”

        no they are more concerned with getting people to think like they do. a hippie in today’s world is one of the most brain-dead intellectually bankrupt people in society.

        hippies don’t protest for freedom. they protest for their leftist causes. they protest to end the war on drugs (which i agree should be stopped as well) while at the same time lobbying the government to force people to eat like they do (meat is murder, dairy is rape, right?) or force everyone to buy an electric car. they protest wars and speak out against violence but cause hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of property damage during their protesting.

        hippies lobby for help in africa to feed the starving masses, but god forbid the food donations are GMF, because then who cares if people are starving, we better block that shit!

        hippies today read chomsky and roll their own cigarettes, tweeting against corporations and technology from their ipad made in sweatshops drinking their fair-trade coffee in a shop opened by an entreprenuer participating in the capitalist system that they despise.

        thats why they suck

        • Little Wolf

          Damn! Hippies have changed since I was a kid. I thought hippies wore bell-bottoms, had long hair and listened to alot to Hendrix, Grateful Dead and Cream while high on acid. They also say “groovy” alot.

          • Yeah, seriously.

            Don’t confuse hippies with hipsters.

            Hippies actually tried to change the world for the better. They talked about loving everyone and everything. They talked about personal freedoms and treating yourself right as well as others.

            Hipsters are just obnoxious douchebags who think their shit doesn’t stink because they listen to obscure music and participate in conspicuous consumption (ironically according to them). Hipsters are the ones who have taken the idea of being an individual and made it worthless. They deserve a punch in the face.

            Stupid hat? Punch! Oversized glasses that you don’t need? Punch! Tweed or plaid anything? Punch! Ironic facial hair? Punch! Saying “I liked ——– before it/they was/were popular? Punch! Buying something for $100USD at the Gap and saying you got it from the Thrift Shop for a dollar? Punch! Obscure references as a tattoo? Punch! Saying you’re not a hipster when you clearly are?

  • terroir

    Chinese netizens have proven themselves to be very pro-environment conservation. Besides belonging to a class that is richer with more access to technology/education, this is basically the one issue that anyone can freely talk and criticize.

    Still. The more aware they become of this issue, the more aware they will be of other issues.

    • Rick in China

      Everyone with nothing to lose in a matter is pro-environment conservation. The moment most of those who preach about distant lands being demolished have their personal interests or desired products at risk, they’ll flip and find justification why their specific interest is an exception to their otherwise “how dare you” attitudes.

    That signboard and the images on it is quite interesting:

    “Shandong Tengzhou police providing information to residents on how to safeguard against wolves.”

    1. Sit around its carcass after killing it. Pose for photographs. Look dignified while hovering over the remains of an animal that, by rights, should not be dead at all.

    2. and 3. March along the streets in large numbers carrying sticks and grinning stupidly and vacuously. (Researching the ‘mob mentality’ approach before joining the group is recommended as it will mean assimilation will be much smoother for the individual). Proceed in large group to kill any wolf, dog, cat or living creature that crosses the groups path and also hang the bodies or otherwise display the bodies of these dead animals around your neighborhoods and communities to further show your power to these wild wolves.

    4. Search for these man-eating wolves through vacant houses, slum areas and random garbage piles, you do not need to plan, you do not need to coordinate, you do not need to bring a net or rope, or a dart gun, because whether or not you actually have any idea what you will do when you come face-to-face with the beast is not important, just seeming to be powerful and big and proactive is enough to frighten these creatures.

    5. Burn garbage and light fireworks. (no reason given)

    • Stimpy

      They didn’t show photo 6. Capture a pet husky and tell the national media it was a man-eating wolf, thus ensuring you are the laughing stock of the interwebs.

    • Tadd

      I love more what US will do to safeguard against wolves:

      1) Tune-in to news station and allow yourself to be engulfed by fear as news report claims that wolves are EVERYWHERE, are the new threat to national security and can kill at any second. Follow-up news reports will claim that sex offenders also keep wolves as their pets; keep your children safe, they are most at risk!

      2) Do not proceed in large groups to kill any wolf, dog, cat or living creature that crosses your path. Instead, stay at home in your armchair shouting obscenities at the television set, as to how the government isn’t doing enough for you and the police are not “respecting your rights”

      3) Riot against local police groups. Cause property damage, create congestion, disturb the peace and then wonder (out loud) as to what you did wrong, after been “violated” (arrested) by police.

      4) Post said “violation” on youtube.

      5) Try your hardest to sue or otherwise make injury claims against any office of authority, all the while preaching: “You serve me! You serve me! I am a pretty snowflake! I am important! I am important!”

  • fong

    it is a pet dog, a husky, apparently.

    • mr. wiener

      What about the reported deaths from “real” wolves. This article is a bit too brief.

      • Little Wolf

        Well……I ain’t got no book learnin like y’all but I been around wolves my whole life(the moniker is no accident), I’ve raised 2 in my home and consider myself a so-called “wolf whisperer”. I won’t even try to explain it but I am to wolves what Crocodile Dundee is for water buffaloes.

        First of …it’s been fairly well established that never in history has a “healthy” wolf ever attacked or killed a human being.
        That animal is a husky/wolf hybrid. The ears are too small and from the pic it just looks too small to be a wolf, though she is a beautiful animal. I have seen dozens of similar animals in the countryside around Hangzhou, and they are not uncommon. The teeth on the dead wolf appear to be larger and wider than a similar sized dog and that animal is certainly peppered with wolf blood. I have seen dozens of similar animals in the countryside around Hangzhou, so they are not uncommon. I have a wolf-mix that I found last year hiding in some shrubbery bloodied, frightened and hungry when she was about a month old. She was/is definitely feral despite that she was found in almost the center of Jiaxing and is still extremely shy of humans despite the VIP treatment.

        • mr. weiner

          Dingos in Australian have and will attack people [no baby jokes please] There were a few cases on Frazer Island of attacks and a death as well. The dingos there are pretty much pure blood because of their isolation from the mainland.
          I’m not doubting your expertise on wolves, but could it be possible that the Asian wolf could be different looking to its American cousin? [small ears].
          I’ve heard wolves will not attack people, but I would not care to test this idea out personally.

          • Wolves are actually really beautiful animals that have simply been victimized by ridiculous fairy tales looking for something to de-humanize (as it were).

            Little Wolf is absolutely correct, there has never been a confirmed attack by wolves (don’t know about dingos or coyotes or whatever, just wolves).

            In fact wolves are some of the shyest predators that you can ever meet in the wild and that’s only IF they don’t smell/hear you coming and run away.

            This is just a barbaric story about uneducated small minds that couldn’t/refused to think logically and took the simplest route (beat some animals to death with sticks). It happens every year or so because chinese people have this irrational fear of canines taller then your knees…

            But of course this is a big “win” for the police in the fight to keep citizens safe from harm, right? Back to Mahjong, tea and hongbaos…

          • Little Wolf

            weiner…I read about a baby that was snatched by coyotes right out of the family yard, outside Los Angeles some years back. (It was on the TV news too…I saw it after it happened) Certainly there are different types of wolves indigneous to different regions.(Asiatic Wolf, Indian Wolf, Red Wolf from the USA south, Arctic Wolves) But as far as grey wolves, they are pretty similar in Asia, Europe and North America.

            I’ve got 3 dogs. 2 feral dogs found in the streets and a long-haired chihuahua that got dumped on me when the ex-girlfriend’s new Chinese boyfriend was scared to death of it. I consider them to be among the luckiest animals in China even though they don’t get outside the walled-in courtyard of my house much.

    Common in China…. er, at least it was very common in the Grandpa Mao days. Only then, the carcass would have made its way to an officials house for barbecue or hot pot. Yummy.

      The caption said they “refridgerated” the body. Meaning they froze it. I think the snout may have been face down or against the wall of the freezer causing the flattened look.

  • is this a wolf or a dog

  • staylost

    This is stupid.
    1) Wild wolves don’t kill people. There has never been one confirmed case in all history.

    2) China has to DNA test a dog to figure out what it is? Are they serious? Do people around here really know so little about animals?

    3) They made a poster of themselves shooting a dog? Not only did they probably spend at least a few guys’ days of employment not actually stopping real crime, but they spent the extra 100 kuai of public money on a poster of it.

    • mr. weiner

      Hmmmm….I would say wild wolves are unlikely to attack or kill people, especially if they have had contact with people and their guns before. As to the DNA testing and poster stuff I fully agree with what you said.

    Idiots, it was very clear from me the instant i saw the picture that this was not a wolf. when i scrolled down i was even more surprised that they needed a DNA test to confirm this.

    The worst it could have been was hybrid. Wolves do not have blue eyes (well not when outgrown puppy state) this only occurs in hybrids. Who knows what they did to the poor dog.

    • Sunshine

      Wolves can have green eyes that appear blue under certain lighting, or it may simply be a genetic defect. Not saying that the husky in the first picture is actually a wolf, though.

      • fookie


        But everyone who has been with wolves would immediately identify this one as not being a wolf simply by looking at these pictures. Size,Ears,snouth There are several other points which could easily be used for reference.

        These heroes of the police saw something which did not look as a pekingese and had no brown fur so it became a wolf they called in half of the police force and chased and beat the dog (before/after capture; look at the mark at the top of his head) and stepped forward as heroic wolf catchers.

  • animal lover

    Poor wolf or dog… I hope she will be released soon and no other wolves will be killed!

    They caught a wolf and shot it. There have been wolf attacks in the past so I don’t think this is excessive. I would have prefered capture and release with a dart gun, but hey, whatever keeps the people safe. Maybe they can do that in the future.

    It’s a bit of a fail for the zookeepers to not able to recognise a husky from an actual wolf, but they did get her DNA tested and I presume handed back to her owners. It sounds pretty thorough and I don’t see anything wrong with that. It’s exactly the kind of thing you would expect at any good zoo.

    What exactly is so controversial about these stories again?

    • Little Wolf

      These are not wolves…they are called wolves to give face to the brave officers of the Nansha River Police.

      Where all all these wolf attacks happening? What constitute a “wolf attack”?

      Like the Bigfoot in “Harry and the Henderson’s” I will bet these “wolf attacks” were nothing more than encounters with magnificent looking animals that scared the shit out of some towny out riding a bike.

      • mouse


        Also, cmon, wolves tend to avoid humans, but if you were walking alone and a pack of wolves was hunting, they would kill and eat you.

        • Little Wolf

          Well…there are always aberrations in any species. (Hongjian and human beings) Still, I would bet these cases are not wolf attacks but wild dogs or hybrids, which is not a wolf and not a dog or sick wolves. I know huge packs of wild dogs are a big problem in Russia. Who’s to say if they find a chewed-up corpse if it’s the work of a dog or a wolf. Wolves always will get blamed.

          Anyway, I’m certain hungry wolves wouldn’t attack me. Every morning I had to wear a full length sheepskin-lined coat everyday when I entered one of my wolf’s pen and fight him(half serious and half playing) until he showed his belly in surrender. He challenged me daily to see who was going to be the Alpha-wolf. But this was even A-typical behavior as I acquired him when he was only 2 weeks old and so he thought I was just another wolf.

          The wolf in “Dances With Wolves” is good example of real wolf behaviour. The wolves in “Jeremiah Johnson” are not.

          • mouse

            Wolves you are raising have nothing to do with wolves in the wild. In that article they speculate that the only reason wolves fear humans today is because essentially wolves that are afraid of humans are more likely to survive in a world where there are modern firearms (kind of a natural selection). They have very good reason to be afraid, in fact they’ve been exterminated in large parts of their range.

            Back in the middle ages though, people were terrified of wolves in the woods, and for good reason. Why wouldn’t they attack?
            I notice that humans tend to forget they too are made out of meat. Ive heard we taste kind of like pork!

          • Little Wolf

            Ok …mouse. You go with your little article.

    I guess it must be so
    But still I cannot see
    If the savage one is me
    How can there be so much that you don’t know?
    You don’t know …

    You think you own whatever land you land on
    The Earth is just a dead thing you can claim
    But I know every rock and tree and creature
    Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

    You think the only people who are people
    Are the people who look and think like you
    But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
    You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

    Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
    Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
    Can you sing with all the voices of the mountains?
    Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
    Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

    Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
    Come taste the sunsweet berries of the Earth
    Come roll in all the riches all around you
    And for once, never wonder what they’re worth

    The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
    The heron and the otter are my friends
    And we are all connected to each other
    In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

    How high will the sycamore grow?
    If you cut it down, then you’ll never know
    And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon

    For whether we are white or copper skinned
    We need to sing with all the voices of the mountains
    We need to paint with all the colors of the wind

    You can own the Earth and still
    All you’ll own is Earth until
    You can paint with all the colors of the wind

    Ten bucks says they got it from the zoo and staged the whole thing.

    Another ten says that someone ate it afterward.

    it’s so cute, regardless what species it really is. :3

    Are you sure that’s a wolf? The wolves I’ve seen (pelts) in real life are much bigger than the one in the picture… maybe 3 to 4 times bigger!

  • Dogbert

    Yeah, I thought they were wild dogs not wolves.

  • Foreign Devil

    For the few remaining predator animals in China. . there really isn’t anything left to eat in abundance except people.

    Please read the novel Wolf Totem by Jiang Rong…….You will be enlightened the realities of wolf nature, man’s relationship to wolves and especially the Chinese relationship to the animal…….a real eye-opener…..and written by a Chinese! Enjoy

      The book starts off slowly, but the end is worth reaching. It was set in Inner Mongolia and the the traditional Mongol attitude to wolves and the importance of preserving of the grasslands was interesting: Then came the Cultural Revolution. Sad face.

    China, is very lucky to have wolves. All we have is lots and lots of Kangaroos.
    You shouldn’t be shooting your wolves just because they eat one or two people. They are doing you a turn. After all there are so many of you.

    This little wolf was just 1 MtX.80 It’s smaller than me. It’s just a pretty little dog. China, will regret it when they are all gone. Leave them alown.
