Werner Freund, a former German paratrooper, established a wolf sanctuary in Merzig, Germany. He has raised more than 70 animals since 1972. Spread over 25 acres, Wolfspark is currently home to 29 wolves forming six packs from European, Siberian, Canadian, Arctic and Mongolian regions. Werner has to behave as the wolf alpha male of the pack to earn the other wolves respect and to be accepted. Werner Freund died at the age of 80 years in February 2014.
