Tumursukh keeps a one year old female Mongolian Wolf, for reasons that werent entirely clear. Just because he wanted one, I think. It looks like a miserable, existence for the animal because she’s tormented by local kids from the other side of the fence. Since she was taken from her litter as a pup, she would be unlikely to survive outside captivity. There is a strong connection in Mongolian culture between manhood and wolves. Many believe that manhood is only reached after a young man kills his first wolf. While that practice might make convervationists cringe, it also means that Mongolians have a vested interest in maintaining a large wolf population for the next generation.
