It's clear to see who is the leader of this wolf pack in Germany.

Werner Freund, 79, sits at the top of the table in this pack of 29 wolves.

For 40 years the ex-paratrooper has hand reared and lived among wolves at his sanctuary in Merzig, Germany.

The magnificent creatures, naturally feared by any layman, all behave playfully and submissively towards Werner, who has over the years exerted his dominance in the pack.

The enclosure at Wolfspark Werner Freund, in Merzig, in the German province of Saarland, contains wolves from six different packs across the world.
They include European, Siberian, Canadian, Artic and Mongolian regions. Some of which look fairly similar, but the snowy white Arctic wolves are the most distinguishable from the rest.

At feeding time, Werner must ensure he continues to feed first and disallows any of the hungry and salivating wolves to come near, in order to maintain the respect of the pack.

It is for this reason that they do not attack him and, instead, lick his face and act playfully when they are not feeding.

 Unperturbed: Werner is used to this sort of behaviour, which far from being aggressive, is in fact a sign of respect and submission from the wolf

Werner established the wolf sanctuary, which is spread over 25 acres, in 1972 and has raised more than 70 animals over the last 40 years.

The wolves, acquired as cubs from zoos or animal parks, were mostly hand-reared.
