Group Description

The wolf has had an influence on the culture, art, and lore of human societies since before historical times. A traditional fear of wolves is deeply ingrained in many cultures, where they are often regarded as fearsome predators, not only of wildlife but also of humans and livestock. Such perceptions have resulted in wolves being hunted to extinction in many parts of the world where they once were plentiful.
In American culture, the image of the "big, bad wolf" has been pervasive. This view has been changing over the past few decades as reports from naturalists studying both wild and captive wolves have dispelled many of the myths and misconceptions surrounding these animals.
Changing perceptions have resulted in an increased interest in wolves and things related to them. Chief among these has been the growing popularity of the wolf-dog hybrid, more commonly referred to as the wolf hybrid.
A wolf hybrid is the offspring of a breeding between a wolf (Canis lupus) and a dog (Canis familiaris). Breeding is possible since wolves and dogs are closely related genetically.
