NewsMobile fact-checked the picture and found that the viral picture is digitally altered.
When we put the image through Reverse Image Search, we found the same picture on Twitter shared with a similar caption. In one of the comments, a user suggested that the picture is a digital art.
This is not a real photo, it’s digital art. Can’t tell if you knew that or not. If you like it you should tag the artist in your post, and probably not refer to it as a photo as that will mislead people.
Sorry if blunt – trying to be polite 🙂

As the tweet suggested that the picture belongs to Michelle Von Kalben, we looked for her on Instagram and found the same picture uploaded by her on March 13, 2021.
The caption of the picture read, “So the gigantic wolf howled to the moon in the middle of the night When I first saw the peaky mountain in Norway I thought that I HAD to create something special out of it. I changed the shape of the mountain a little so that it would look more like a wolf to create a more unique and magical scene. Who knows what mountain this is? “.

In the caption, she mentions that she changed the shape of the mountain a little so that it would look more like a wolf.
Further, our team contacted her on Facebook and she confirmed to NewsMobile that the picture has, indeed, been altered by her. She also sent us the original image that she clicked and told us that the mountain in the picture is the Segla mountain in Norway.
On comparing both the pictures, it becomes clear the digital picture has been morphed to make it look like a wolf.
Hence, the above information proves that the picture is a digitally processed image of the Segla mountain in Norway. Hence, the claim is false.
