The Wolf (aka Grey Wolf) Canis lupus is surely one of the most noble animals on the planet. Seeing a real, live, wild Wolf is not easy. In some parts of the world, for example in Canada, Russia and Romania, they are not as rare as they once were, however they are wary creatures, usually keeping well away from humans. Some tour companies organise wolf tracking and watching tours (in N America, Poland, Romania, Finland, Spain, etc) and joining one of these is often the best way to maximize one's chances of seeing this carnivore. Yellowstone National Park in the USA is one of the few places were wolves are possible to observe without joining a tour, though even here up-to-date local information will still be needed.
