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.
Okay so me and my brother were playing scorched earth and really wanted one so we used a strategy that worked. Depending if it’s you solo or playing with other people bring a boomerang or two for each of you (or just you) and find one a little away from its tribe if solo, but if not playing solo just corner them, then spam them with boomerangs and it will knock them out. Same for solo(CAUTION TAKES A LITTLE WHILE TO 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!
If you find yourself against a herd of these, just keep backing up and using your boomerangs, trans arrows, and slingshots. Both the primary and secondary attacks have a delay before they actually deal damage, and they have to stop moving first, so if you keep backpedaling they won't be able to hit you.
