Grey Wolf (Pack of 4/5) v Iberian (Spanish) Fighting Bull
#1
Grey Wolf (Pack of 4/5) - Canis lupus
The Grey Wolf (Canis lupus) is the largest wild canid, males averaging between 70 and 110 pounds depending on subspecies. The Wolf has a specialized body that has made it one of the world's most efficient hunters. Its powerful neck is a very important adaptation: it has to be strong to support the wolf's large head and is crucial for bringing down prey. The skull is 31cm (12 inches) long and is armed with an impressive array of large canines and carnassial teeth which, when coupled with huge jaw muscles that are evident from the large sagittal crest and wide zygomatic arches, give it an incredible biteforce that is strong enough to break the bones of prey and even crack the femur of moose. Wolves primarily feed on medium to large sized ungulates (up to the size of bison 10–15 times larger than themselves), though they are not fussy eaters. Medium and small sized animals that may supplement the diet of wolves include marmots, beaver, hares, badgers, foxes, weasels, ground squirrels, mice, hamsters, voles and other rodents, as well as insectivores.

Iberian (Spanish) Fighting Bull
The Spanish Fighting Bull (Toro Bravo, toro de lidia, toro lidiado, ganado bravo, Touro de Lide) is an Iberian cattle breed. It is primarily bred free-range on extensive estates in Southern Spain, Portugal and Latin American countries where bull fighting is organized. Fighting bulls are selected primarily for a certain combination of aggression, energy, strength, stamina and lack of intelligence: a bull intelligent enough to distinguish man from cape would be too dangerous. The fighting bull is characterized by its aggressive behaviour, especially when solitary or unable to flee. Many are coloured black or dark brown, but other colorations are normal. They reach maturity slower than meat breeds as they were not selected to be heavy, having instead an well-muscled "athletic" look, with a prominent morillo, a complex of muscles over the shoulder and neck which gives the bull its distinctive profile and strength with its horns. The horns are longer than in most other breeds and are also present in both males and females . Mature bulls weigh from 500 to 700 kg (1100-1600 lb).

The wolves can win if they play their cards right.

The bull wins.

It takes 9 to 13 wolves to kill adult male bison in winter where deep snow restricts the bison's mobility but some wolves still get killed at times by dangerous prey. Read Gaurus' posts in this thread:

A Spanish fighting bull is significantly more agile + athletic than a bison and a whole lot deadlier, more ferocious and aggressive. The bull should be large and durable enough to survive some wolf bites whilst he picks off and kills the wolves 1 by 1 with his horns.

It may take time but the bull will prevail imo.

Thanks Taipan!

Its such a close call, which is why I thought it would be interesting to request this. The wolves are quite formidable as a pack and work well taking down prey larger than themselves but the Spanish bull is very aggressive and tough so it wouldn't go down so quickly. I think for now, I may lean towards the wolves here but thats me.
