Meet the wolfman! Ex-paratrooper, 79, who is so close to his pack of 29 wolves they eat meat from his MOUTH 


  • Werner Freund, 79, has raised more than 70 wolves on his sanctuary in Merzig, Germany
  • To maintain his alpha male position in the pack, he ensure he always feeds first


By HELEN COLLIS


PUBLISHED: 17:10 GMT, 27 January 2013 | UPDATED: 09:13 GMT, 28 January 2013


It's clear to see who is the leader of this wolf pack in Germany.Werner Freund, 79, sits at the top of the table in this pack of 29 wolves.For 40 years the ex-paratrooper has hand reared and lived among wolves at his sanctuary in Merzig, Germany. 
Scroll down for video

Leader of the pack: Wolf researcher Werner Freund feeds Arctic wolves with meat with his mouth in an enclosure at Wolfspark Werner Freund, in Merzig in the German province of Saarland


Werner Freund has hand-reared wolf pups at his sanctuary for 40 years


The wolves, acquired as cubs from zoos or animal parks, were mostly hand-reared and all know who is boss

The magnificent creatures, naturally feared by any layman, all behave playfully and submissively towards Werner, who has over the years exerted his dominance in the pack.The enclosure at Wolfspark Werner Freund, in Merzig, in the German province of Saarland, contains wolves from six different packs across the world.
More...


They include European, Siberian, Canadian, Artic and Mongolian regions. Some of which look fairly similar, but the snowy white Arctic wolves are the most distinguishable from the rest. 

Werner exerts his dominance at feeding time, ensuring he is the first to get his teeth into some raw meat


Knowing their place in the pack, the hungry wolves can do little more than watch on, while salivating, as Werner tucks into a deer's leg


Once Werner has had his fill, the lower ranking wolves can finally move in and begin to devour the carcass



The hungry Mongolian wolves finally get their fill and devour the entire deer cadaver
At feeding time, Werner must ensure he continues to feed first and disallows any of the hungry and salivating wolves to come near, in order to maintain the respect of the pack.It is for this reason that they do not attack him and, instead, lick his face and act playfully when they are not feeding.

When they are not feeding, the pack show their affection for their leader, staying close and acting playful


Mongolian wolf Heiko licks the mouth of wolf researcher Werner Freund in a sign of acknowledgement and subservience



Unperturbed: Werner is used to this sort of behaviour, which far from being aggressive, is in fact a sign of respect and submission from the wolf

Werner Freund, 79, a former German paratrooper, established the wolf sanctuary in 1972 and has raised more than 70 animals over the last 40 years

Werner established the wolf sanctuary, which is spread over 25 acres, in 1972 and has raised more than 70 animals over the last 40 years. 
The wolves, acquired as cubs from zoos or animal parks, were mostly hand-reared.
At home in the Arctic conditions: Spread over 25 acres, Wolfspark is currently home to 29 wolves forming six packs from European, Siberian, Canadian, Artic and Mongolian regions


Home from home: The Arctic wolves look quite at home in their currently snow-covered enclosure


One of them: Leaning back on his haunches and howling into the cold air, Werner looks completely at one with his life as leader of the wolf pack


Werner has a ready supply of slaughtered deer to feed his pack, all of which he will have to eat himself to show who is boss

Scientists discover secret behind owls' rotating heads

   |

Press Trust of India : Washington, Sun Feb 03 2013, 01:05 hrs


American medical specialists from Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore have figured out how owls can almost fully rotate their heads — by as much as 270 degrees in either direction.

The birds do so while hunting without damaging the delicate blood vessels in their necks and heads, and without cutting off blood supply to their brains.

"Until now, brain imaging specialists like me who deal with human injuries caused by trauma to arteries in the head and neck have always been puzzled as to why rapid, twisting head movements did not leave thousands of owls lying dead on the forest floor from stroke," said interventional neuroradiologist Philippe Gailloud, lead author of the study.

To solve the riddle, the team studied the bone and blood vessel structure in the heads and necks of several types of owls after their deaths from natural causes.

A contrast dye was used to enhance X-ray imaging of the blood vessels, which were then meticulously dissected, drawn and scanned to allow detailed analysis.

The most striking finding came after researchers injected dye into the owls' arteries, mimicking blood flow, and manually turned the animals' heads, the study says.

Blood vessels at the base of the head, just under the jaw bone, kept getting larger and larger, turning into reservoirs as more of the dye entered the system.

This contrasted starkly with human anatomical ability, where arteries generally tend to get smaller and smaller, and do not balloon as they branch out.

Researchers believe these blood reservoirs allow owls to pool blood to meet the energy needs of their large brains and eyes, while they rotate their heads.

The supporting vascular network, with its many interconnections and adaptations, helps minimize any interruption in blood flow, the study said.

"Our new study results show precisely what morphological adaptations are needed to handle such head gyrations and why humans are so vulnerable to osteopathic injury from chiropractic therapy," said Gailloud. The findings appear in Science.

Rare thundersnow phenomenon wakes shivering Britons from their slumber as the country is braced for the return of MORE SNOW and gales




  • England, Scotland and Northern Ireland
  • Large areas of country blanketed in snow as Big Freeze returns
  • Sub-zero temperatures expected bringing warnings of ice on roads
  • Environment Agency still has 5 flood warnings and 65 flood alerts in place

By HUGO GYE

PUBLISHED: 15:11 GMT, 4 February 2013 | UPDATED: 15:31 GMT, 5 February 2013



Britain was hit with 'thundersnow' today as the return of freezing weather combined with lightning storms to create the freak phenomenon.

Residents of northern England, Scotland and Northern Ireland were shocked to wake up to a blanket of snow after a night of storms, with reports of thundersnow in major cities including Manchester, Sheffield, Glasgow and Edinburgh.

Meanwhile, motorists throughout the UK were bracing themselves for chaos on the roads as several inches of snow were forecast, combined with gale-force winds and sub-zero temperatures.

'Overnight we had snow showers packing in to the north and west of the UK, with up to 10cm in Northern Ireland and the south Pennines,' a Met Office forecaster said, adding that the snow was likely to turn to rain by the end of the day.

 

The most extreme conditions have been seen on the west coast of Britain, where sub-zero thunderstorms were created when 'deeply unstable and cold air runs over warm sea'.

STV meteorologist Sean Bell said that Glasgow saw thundersnow overnight, while a number of Twitter users wrote that parts of northern England including Manchester, Sheffield and Cheshire were also hit by the phenomenon.

WHAT IS THUNDERSNOW?

Thunder and lightning are more usually associated with warmer climates but under certain conditions they can occur in cold ones too.

Thundersnow starts out like a summer thunderstorm - the sun heats the ground and pushes masses of warm, moist air upward, creating unstable air columns.

As it rises, the moisture condenses to form clouds, which are jostled by internal turbulence.

Lightning is caused by this rubbing of the clouds against each other - thunder is the sound of lightning but as sound moves more slowly than light we hear it later.

The tricky part for making thundersnow is creating that atmospheric instability in the wintertime.

When it is cold, and particularly in air conducive to snowfall, the lower atmosphere is dry, cold and very stable.

For thundersnow to occur there needs to be a very precise set of circumstances - the air layer closer to the ground has to be warmer than the layers above, but still cold enough to create snow.

When this happens warm air rises, snow falls and thunder, lightning and snow all occur at the same time.

One of the Sheffield residents affected by the snowfall was Olympic star Jessica Ennis, who tweeted: 'More snow! Thought we'd seen the last of it!!'

A Met Office spokesman confirmed that outbreaks of thundersnow - which typically do not last as long as summer thunderstorms - had occurred over various northern regions of the UK, while a forecaster said that more could be on their way throughout today.

Up to 6in (15cm) of snow and 70mph winds are forecast throughout Tuesday, with sub-zero temperatures adding to the pain across the UK.

Forecasters last night warned of treacherous ice on the roads, with temperatures predicted to plummet as low as -3C (27F) today. But north-westerly winds will make it feel as cold as -7C (19F).

The worst of the snow and sleet will affect North-West England, central and southern Scotland and Lincolnshire ' where between 4in and 6in of snow is expected.

But even those in the South will need their scarves and overcoats as snow showers hit nearly all parts of the UK and temperatures dip below freezing.

Manchester Airport was forced to suspend runway operations for a period this morning to clear snow.

It cancelled two flights, while another was diverted to Liverpool, as flurries made their way south.

In Derbyshire, teams of volunteer 'snow angels' stepped in to clear the streets after the local council admitted it did not have the resources to do the job.

A farmer in Glossop fitted a snow plough to his tractor and helped keep the town's roads safe in the wake of heavy snowfall.

The cold weather is expected to cling on during the next few days with temperatures dipping to -4C (25F) overnight.

BABY BORN IN CAR PARK DURING SNOWSTORM SAVED BY PASSERS-BY

A baby born in the middle of a snowstorm was saved by the kindness of passers-by who pushed his parents' car three miles to the local hospital.

Sebastian was born four weeks premature as his mother Liz Hooley and father Tim Cross were attempting to drive through four inches of snow to Dewsbury and District Hospital in West Yorkshire last Friday.

Their car got stuck several times, so passing teenagers, pub patrons and taxi drivers helped to get them out.
