Well first of all the lionness would not fight it would be the older males against the wolf pack. So it would really be 2 large male lions vs. 15-20 wolves. The wolves would simply overwealm the lions. And wolves are much larger than dogs much faster and have much stronger bite force.

I can help with interspecies conflict questions regarding carnivorous vertebrate animals. Also I can answer questions regarding ecological role of various mammals. You can also ask me questions about tigers and their current situation in tiger reserves. No questions about domestic animals please. I am only an expert with wild mammals.

I'm currently studing animal biology. I've been researching 'Interspecies conflict' from a long time. I've read alot of books on wildlife,also I've been visiting a native zoological park from quite a few years to study the behaviour of animals there.
