Wolves save the life of an assaulted woman, help her recover from PTSD


Sarah Varley was just 19 years old when she was attacked and suffered from PTSD.

she was so terrified of vomiting that she ate only three raisins and three nuts every morning. she lost the second 5 kilograms in five months, which caused fear that she would die without help.

Now 28-year-old Sarah from Southern California has saved her life from spending eight hours a day on a pack of wolves mixed with wolf dogs.

she said. “I do not know if I would be here today without wolves.”

“As it turned out, I was trying my best to ease the pain. You can only do it for a long time until something happens.

“I was afraid of everything, but one day I entered the cell with a wolf, it was the first time my brain was closed. When you are with a predator that can harm you, your brain automatically focuses on it.

“Instead of the millions of imaginary threats I feared, I was focused on that one threat, I was present at that moment.

“When I first started spending a lot of time with them, I definitely felt like I was hyper-aware, there were times when it was awful.

“Wolves are really powerful animals. If something makes them angry or you do something they do not like, they will let you know.

“But that level of fear allowed me to start feeling it.

I used to be afraid of everything around me, but when I was with a wolf, I had a legitimate reason to fear and respect, which gave me something to focus on.

“I think respect and the need to be present is what helped me a lot. It allowed me to regain control of a traumatic event in my life, it helped me heal.

“I am so grateful to these animals, I feel very lucky.”

Sarah works with both purebred wolves and wolfhounds, which are the result of breeding “wolves” in the last five generations of animals.
