“The wolf is the arch type of ravin, the beast of waste and desolation.”
- -- Theodore Roosevelt
Wolves show up individually or in packs of three. Aesop will bark and growl when he sees them, but will not fight. Sometimes they are found chewing on a bone or napping and will not be alerted to your presence unless you get too close. If the pack sees you, two will approach head on and the third will attempt to flank you.
Wolves will avoid fire. If you are near a lit Camp Fire, there will be a circle that will appear around the fire that they will not pass. This can be used to get close to the edge and set a trap, or to safely throw tainted meat/bait from, but be careful, as soon as the fire goes out they will come for you.
If you return to your raft while being chased, and then exit the raft area, there seems to be some sort of safe zone before you enter the area. This can be used to get close to the edge and set a trap, or to safely throw tainted meat/bait from.
- One Tainted Meat - Throw the meat in their direction and they will sniff and eat it, dying soon afterwards.
- One Spear Trap
- Three Arrows
- Bear attacks (if enough damage is dealt)
