Parked near a recent kill site, Dorothy Keeler has not yet discovered a wild wolf, who was neither afraid nor threatening, within feet of her. She turned and kept quiet and still, and the wolf proceeded on to a flattened ground squirrel nearby. The wolf picked up the squirrel and retreated into the brush, where it began to eat. "I could hear it crunching the bones, but I was not afraid." she says. "I know that we are not on a wolf's menu. That wolf had a choice between me and a flat ground squirrel for breakfast. It chose the squirrel. We have worked at close range with dozens of these wolves since 1989, and we have never felt threatened in any way. These wolves have come to tolerate humans, and as long as we never let the wolves associate us WITH food, we feel they will never associate us AS food." she says.
