Shaun Ellis aka Wolfman studies wolves by living among them. His wild life is chronicled on Animal Planets 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, hes finally been accepted as a low-ranking member of the pack.
But it wasnt easy.
Ellis says hes 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.
Hes had to growl, bare his teeth, and stick his head into a carcass while feeding with the animals so theyd accept him.
Ellis has also licked their wounds when they were hurt, because, Theyd do the same for me.
He says wolves develop tight, loyal families that genuinely care for each other.
