Abstract: [no abstract available originally]

[Summary]: The present article covers a wide range of questions concerning biology, significance and distribution of the wolf in Bulgarian nature. Its publication follows an unpublished manuscript from 1978 of the famous Bulgarian zoologist Nikolay Boev (1922–1985). The offered version is edited by Zlatozar Boev with insignificant shortenings. Among the topics concerned are: Past distribution and study level of the wolf in Bulgaria; Dimensions and fur colouration; Number of the Bulgarian population; Biology and behaviour; Annual activity; Breeding; Enemies in the nature; Feeding, hunt and damages of the Wolf; Role of the Wolf in the nature and the advantage of the Wolf for the Man. This article represents only a part of the whole series of such studies about the wild mammals and birds in the Bulgarian nature, planned by N. Boev. He intended to write such papers on the Brown bear, the Otter, the Pine Marten, the Beech Marten, the Lynx, the Red Deer, the Auroch, etc. Unfortunately only the results about the Beaver and the Pine Marten are partly published up till now.
