A WikiWolf is a WikiFauna that travels in packs, because they stand a bigger chance of catching any vandal they may encounter. Since they live in packs, they can be a formidable force if challenged. They behave similarly to WikiDogs, attacking vandals upon sighting one. They, however, carry out their attack more systematically than WikiDogs, usually calling their pack and carrying out their attack with this well-documented four-step process:

  1. Intimidate the vandal, usually by barking at them, to attempt to make the vandal stop.
  2. Keep checking on the vandal, scanning their contributions for any vandalism they may have made afterward.
  3. If the vandal vandalizes again, chase the vandal.
  4. Revert any vandalism performed by the vandal until they are caught. During this phase, WikiWolves may be mistaken for Edit Ninjas.

Unfortunately, due to their wild nature, they may be less adept at refraining from biting the newbies, unlike the tamer WikiDogs. They may need to temporarily be put on a leash if they bite too many people, lest they become a WikiVampire. They are still wild and hard to control, like the younger cubs. They cannot be adopted, but they can still be told to calm down.

SubspeciesEdit

  1. Canis wikilupus youngis, the WikiWolfCub.
  2. Canis wikilupus familiaris, the WikiDog.
  3. Canis wikilupus puppis, the WikiPuppy.
  4. Canis wikilupus puppetus, a type of WikiWolf that will call the pack in a debate or vote, instead of against vandals. These are extremely dangerous to the habitat of many WikiFauna.
  5. Canis wikilupus importunus, the WikiHound. Avoid them, as they most likely want to annoy you. If it is impossible to avoid the WikiHound, try to ignore it, to avoid encouraging it to continue in its behavior. If this is impossible, feel free to contact animal control so they can put them on a leash.
