Image shows a retreating wolf, not a protector15 July 2021What was claimed Female wolf is acting as part of a ‘fighting unit’ and showing trickery and loyalty by protecting her partner’s neck in a fight. None of the wolves in the image are female, and the wolf which appears to be ‘protecting’ a partner's neck was likely just to be turning away. The image, ‘wolf fight’, was taken by photographer Jean Paul and uploaded to Flickr in 2009. He also said that the crouching wolf was simply submitting and trying to turn back, and collided into another male wolf. Rather than showing a female wolf protecting the neck of her male partner, the photograph simply shows a collision between two male wolves as one tries to flee.
