From The New Indian Express:
In the popularity index of animals of the wild, the wolf ranks abysmally low. We love the lion and the tiger for their magnificence, the leopard for its speed and quiet. In fact, all the big cats get at least a smile from us, be it the puma, the jaguar or the shadowy snow leopard.
Similarly, the elephant, and the monkey, the ape are among creatures we look upon with kindly eyes.
But the wolf, though a forerunner of the dog, who is a much-loved family friend across the world, finds little favour.
