Typically they will run directly the way you are facing when you attack them. You can use that to your advantage by running it into rocks or a mountain side. Be careful if taking on a group! They are faster then they look by far. They have a good topar timer so dropping multiple at once and taming thdm all is not too difficult.
In a group they attack, individual they run. Pick the lone wolf and lead it by facing the way you want it to go and trap it against a wall or rock or a safe place. No missed shots, no wasted resources, and a easy Morrelatops tame.
Probably your first tame besides the jerboa. Boomerangs work wonders to knock out. Wait to single out one then knock out in a corner and then use berries. Great for water storage, berry gathering, thatch, and wood!
