It hardly ever happens, but since coyotes have killed humans on occasion and wolves are larger and more fierce, they can more than likely kill humans as well

Actually, there have been NO documented killings by wolves. Like any large carnivore, they definitely have the means to kill a human... they can bring down moose. Usually, though, they like to stay away from humans as much as possible except for occasionally killing livestock.

How did the man become the wolf?

Man is not a wolf but man is able to become half wolf. I am an expert on a lot of things about wolves. There is a wolf legend about that. The legend has it that a man traveled into the Yukon Wolf Territory in Antarctica. The man walked into a cave and held up a torch. He looked around and saw an injured wolf pup in the corner of the cave. He looked at the wolf pup and then looked around again. He figured that if he let the wolf live it might hurt another human. He then killed the wolf pup, knowing it was defenseless. Then the mother wolf entered the cave and saw the man with a knife and the dead wolf pup on the ground. The mother wolf growled at the human and then howled. The father of the wolf pup entered the cave and began to howl in harmony with his mate. The sound was so beautiful that the human listened and did not harm the wolves. The two wolves stopped howling and glared at the human. The human walked towards the two wolves and held up the knife. The human walked towards the female wolf and jabbed at her with the knife. The female wolf then pounced at the human trying to kill him but missed. After that the male wolf was provoked. Then the male wolf lunged himself at the human. The male wolf pinned the human on the ground. The human jumped up and backed against the cane wall. The male wolf lunged at him again about to kill him. The male wolf bit the man on the neck. The bite did not kill the man it just wounded him. The wound contained venom in it that made the man turn into a half wolf. The half wolf is what humans call a werewolf...this is a very long legend
