Wolves are a type of entity.
They are usually found in the wilderness, but can sometimes be found closer to towns.
Fighting wolves can be more challenging than fighting zombies due to their increased speed as well as harder to hit, smaller bodies. A headshot with a bow or similar ranged weapon will instantly kill them. When they are skinned with a bladed weapon they can yield 1-3 units of wolf meat, which can be cooked at a fire and consumed for a large energy boost.
