Questions about wolves

Do wolves kill for sport?

Answer: Wolves, like all wild carnivores, do not kill for sport.  They kill to sustain themselves.  Though it is uncommon, “surplus killing” (killing more prey animals than can be immediately consumed) has been observed in many predator species.  If given the opportunity to secure future meals, many animals will sometimes do so.  It is a survival mechanism.  It is this survival tactic that has led to the misplaced notion of “sport killing” arises.  It has nothing to do with sport.
