A 43-year-old Frank Soma from Norway has raised four tiny wolf pups. He fed the babies, slept with them in the den, and is now the leader of the pack. Frank Soma can easily join the wolves' hunt and sometimes howls with his half-wild friends at night for fun.
Frank has been working in Langedrag National Park for more than 20 years. Once he found a litter of tiny wolves and took them from the snow-covered woods. Aska, Embla, Irgas, and Varg have known the man since they were little ones. The man fed them and kept them warm on cold nights.
As a result, the wolves have grown up and now they think Frank to be their leader. The animals even don't mind Frank's petting them. Of course, during hunts the ranger can't keep up with the wolves, but he symbolically runs with them for a while.
"I like to call on them at night on a full moon. I start howling for fun, but then it gets real. A wolf song," Frank told reporters.
This kind of relationship with wolves is very rare. Frank managed to gain the wolves' trust only because he has nursed them to health.
