I know wolves are dangerous, but it’s hard not to see them as big dogs—especially after watching today’s video.

As a preview, Yellowstone released this short video captured by a trail camera just a few days ago.

To commemorate #25YearsOfWolves in Yellowstone, we’re broadcasting on Facebook live each Tuesday in March (starting next week) to share what we’ve learned and answer your questions. On March 31, at 11am MST, we’ll discuss the future of wolves in Yellowstone.The most pressing issue facing wolves today is us, humans. Roughly 80% of wolves in the northern Rockies die from human-related causes. The value we place on intact ecosystems and our attitudes towards predators will continue to influence their future as a species. We look forward to having these conversations with you over the next month! Don't forget to tune in next week!

I love the look on the wolf’s face when he spots the camera. You can see the wheels turning.

For some reason, the big gray wolf decides that the best course of action is to lick the camera.

But he isn’t finished quite yet. Just as another wolf in the pack approaches the camera, the first wolf decides to sniff around.

Again, it’s hard not to see them as big, curious dogs. Just don’t give one a belly rub.

    Wolf is looking like a German Shepherd breed dog. No doubt why these are called big dogs.

    I like the wolf so much because we can not train them to play in the circus. They have their own strength.
