Answer by  Elysha45 (77)

Wolf worms are parasites that are dangerous to cats and other animals, like rabbits. They are not dangerous to humans but if turned into botflies they can be dangerous. There are such botflies that live on humans but they mostly populate in Central America and Mexico. Botflies don't feed on their victims but they do cut their air supply.

they are dangerous to all animals from farm animals and pets to wild animals. A wolf worm or screw worm is easy to see on your animal, as they are about half the width of a dime with a brown spot at its end and they make a breathing hole.
