Wolves have Attacked!

Many people fear wolves. They aren't aggressive unless they are fighting animals for food or a person to defend theirselves. Wolves are known in many stories such as "Little Red Ridding Hood" and "The Three Little Pigs" and also "The Boy Who Cried Wolf". Wolves rarely attack humans. They only attack humans if they are starving and can't find food fast or they feel that they or their pack and cubs are about to get attacked.
