“At first I felt fear too, but grad­u­ally I found that wolves can also be gen­tle.”

So said Zhou Xinyue, a 20-year-old girl who feeds wolves at an eco­tourism area in Chifeng, In­ner Mon­go­lia Au­ton­o­mous Re­gion. Re­cently a video of Zhou feed­ing wolves went vi­ral on Chi­nese so­cial net­works. In the video, Zhou in­ter­acts with eight wolves and some­times uses her mouth to feed them, which re­ceived mil­lions of views. Zhou said that she has been feed­ing wolves for four years. She found her pas­sion for wolves af­ter help­ing out at her un­cle’s farm where she grad­u­ally fell in love with this clever an­i­mal. In Novem­ber, Zhou found her cur­rent job – to feed eight wolves at an eco­tourism area. She feels very happy to have this job, but some­time also misses the wolves at her un­cle’s farm and wants to visit them dur­ing the Chi­nese New Year. (Source: Beijing Youth Daily)
