Man Lives, Eats, Sleeps With Wolves

NORTH DEVON, England (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – A man in North Devon, England, is literally being raised by wolves.

Shaun Ellis – aka Wolfman – studies wolves by living among them. His wild life is chronicled on Animal Planet’s Living With Wolfman, and in his new memoir, The Man Who Lives With Wolves (Harmony Books).

After eating, sleeping, and howling with wolves for years, he’s finally been accepted as a “low-ranking” member of the pack.

But it wasn’t easy.

Ellis says he’s been bitten and bruised on the job because wolves often communicate through physical contact.

In fact, they greet him by putting his entire face into their mouth.

He’s had to growl, bare his teeth, and stick his head into a carcass while feeding with the animals so they’d accept him.

Ellis has also licked their wounds when they were hurt, because, “They’d do the same for me.”

He says wolves develop tight, loyal families that genuinely care for each other.
