This is a question Bizarre leaps of logic

Amorous Badger says: "I once humorously suggested that someone had been internet-stalking a Big Brother contestant. They concluded that I was threatening them. What's the oddest misunderstanding you've been involved in?"

I once read a piece about wolves as pets.
Apparently they're pretty good. Being a pack animal, and essentially wary of humans, as long as they know you're not a threat but are boss, you're fine.

It's the wolf-dog hybrids that are the problem: they don't have the same wariness of humans, which makes them think that they can try to rise through the pack hierarchy - and they're better fighters than you.

You can kill a wolf-dog hybrid in about a second...
...just kick it's face off.

Richard Rudgley did a documentary about stone-age life and the interplay between humans and wolves, including a segment with him and a wolf expert in a large forested pen with a pack.

Apparently a viable relationship with a wild wolf is perfectly possible as long as you never ever forget that it is the wolf that adopts the human as a pet, not the other way around. They both had to kneel and wait for the wolf to come to them and sniff the backs of their necks, then were able to approach the pack at rest in seeming safety.

I wouldnt want one.. cats and bunnies seem so much safer.
