Most people run from wolves but one brave couple spent six years of their lives living with the feared creatures in an effort to better understand their way of life.

Jim and Jamie Dutcher lived in a tent within the world’s largest wolf enclosure in a bid to observe and document the behaviour of the wild animals.

The married couple lived without electricity or running water and braved temperatures of -40 Farenheit as they spent six years living in the 25 acre enclosure on the edge of Idaho’s Sawtooth wilderness.

And as these intimate images show, Jim, 69 and Jamie, 50, formed an incredible bond with the animals and gained a unique insight into the lives and behaviour of wolves.

By socialising with the pack from when they were pups, Jim and Jamie were able to gain the wolves trust and observe their behaviour in a way that few people ever have.
