A 79 year-old German man has been living with wolves for the past 40 years. The way they respect him and how they interact is unbelievable. This is Werner Freund.

Wolves are obviously a feared species.

The wolves are playful when he's around.

The only reason he is alive: He is the alpha. He's in charge.
