How does global warming affect Arctic wolves?

Arctic wolves live in an environment that is covered in ice and snow. There is some evidence that extreme weather variations in recent years have made it difficult for populations of muskox and Arctic hare to find food. These animals are the traditional prey of Arctic wolves and a reduction in their numbers will affect the wolves.

Often Arctic wolves follow the migration of their prey if their prey migrates and that can lead them to human activity if they're not careful. Arctic Wolves usually avoid human activity so it's not really a problem but if they pass a certain point they are often shot and killed.

Is the Arctic wolf sold on the black market?

Yes, they've been sold on the Black Market countless times. They are high in price, ranging from $1500-$2000. Of course, that means they are popular in the Black Market. They are sold for the pure purpose of their notoriously soft fur. The arctic Wolf has amazingly soft fur and it consists of three coats. The inner, which is formed when the wolf is a pup, the outer, which is soft and high in price, and the taugh, which is the very outer layer and is extremely tough. It is used for warmth and extra protection during the winter and hunting seasons. Hope this helped =)

Why didnt 38 witnesses do anything to try to help Kitty Genovese when they saw her being murdered?

In short, the answer can be summed up as "diffusion of responsibility", which in social psychological terms, translates to the number of persons in the group, dictates how fast a response to emergencies will be given. In other words, the more people to a group, the less likely it is for any individual group member to act "individually" and seek out help. This is so because it is hypothesized that an individual will think to themselves "someone else will call for help", which if all 38 people are thinking this, then who is calling for help? There is also the shock & awe value of a traumatic situation, meaning a shocking event more often than not, can cause delay in a group setting. Think of a fight in a public setting, more often than not, individuals of the "group" gather around first to see whats going on before any type of preventative action is taken to stop the fight. I wish I could remember the exact terminology for these phenomena, but these are the general ideas of those terms. Maybe someone else can fill in any blanks that I may have missed.

Can Arctic wolves make good pets?

Definitely not! wild animals are not meant to be pets!

I dont think that is a true statement or a informed one.

We currently have a female artic/timber wolf mix she is going on three years old her name is Shoshonee and she is a great pet she is very sociolable loves to play listens you can take the food right out of her mouth. the only drawback is that she isnt very other animal friendly. but that is because she wasnt raised around other animals. And that is not her fault but ours for not knowing at the time. She is very loyal protective of our home and family.I personally wouldnt trade her for anything she is part of our family. Any breed can get a bad rap by misinformation. Wolves are not for everybody they do take a strong personaility to control them so dont let them be the alpha and they will follow you to hell and back.
