Uhhh, were I live I see Wolves every few weeks. Are they really that rare in Denmark that you're that scared of them? If so don;t be, they tend to ignore humans, especially a lone wolf.
I'm pretty sure 99% of the people that have posted in this thread have never seen a wolf before besides your local television. Wolves are as tall as great danes and if they stand on thier hind legs will be taller then most humans. These are not huskys or your average dog height. Google a picture of a hunter holding up a wolf if you want to see for yourself. On all fours they come up the waist of a 5'-6' human. Lmao of people saying that they will shy away from humans thats a lie and a fairy tale if i've ever heard one. Wolves yes are pack animals but they see anyting as food. they will attack bears and will take a human if they want to. I have been around them and have been stalked by a wolf while hiking in the mountains of Idaho. Wolves paws are as big as a small adult human hand. never treat a wolf lightly. Google a picture of a hunter holding up a wolf if you want to see for yourself.
Anyone that thinks they can scare a wolf off by waving theirs hands doesn't realize that the wolves 4 friends are sneaking up behind you as he lures your attention from them.

i know you've gotten your information from game of thrones but you need a reality check lol
Edit to show how wrong you are. the wolves feet are off he ground and his head isnt above the humans. looks like a 90ish pound animal to me.
double edit: also congratz on getting 5 pages into a thread without realizing we are talking about a single wolf. if you dont think you can kill a single 90 pound wolf then you need a self confidence booster.

these animals are made to take down elk and deer and if they can take those down they can take a human easly. Do you think your scarier then an antler filled elk or deer? humans and their plushy bodies with no protective hides.... keep dreaming that you are actually scary in the sight of most major predators.

Also, this tactic only works when in a pack. They'll run around you and confuse you, you can't pick a target and they take that to their advantage and attack your blind side. Wolves are very intelligent hunters and only a young wolf would be stupid enough to attack any prey head-on and/or alone. A lone human doesn't have a chance in hell against a pack, that isn't even arguable. It would be pure luck if you survive an attack from a 5-6+ individual large wolf pack. There are a few animals that are truly dangerous even when alone, these animals are often herbivorous and very large ones at that. Elk, deer, wild horse, buffalo etc. Those are the ones you should fear when you're out in the wilderness alone, not a pesky young wolf straying from its pack.

In my town we have a pack of about 20 living on the outskirts. I see them fairly often on my drive to work, the pack has been there for 17 years and not once have they attacked a human, they get fed plenty by all of the deer on their way to the town which love to eat our gardens. This si also why they haven't moved on. The Deer pretty much line up to be eaten for them.
I have an alligator in my back yard, wtf are you scared of a wolf for?
Well, you see...a doctor CURES people. A medic just makes them comfortable...WHILE THEY DIE! ~ Doc
They are also naturally afraid of humans, but in a pack they hunt what scares them. Humans are the only animal that hunts the hunters regularly.
Also I should point out if you live in an area with Wolves always take a weapon when going in to an area you might encounter a wolf. Also get a large dog and learn to rough house with it. It may sound crazy but an unarmed human if they are trained can beat a small pack of wolves, but it requires being meaner and smarter then they are. Which is not as easy as it sounds.
oops forgot to put a Great Dane picture in.
Looking for size charts for comparison here is a nice one of all the current wolves. http://th05.deviantart.net/fs46/PRE/...by_tanathe.jpg
