Same here, I just want the story and do not want to deal with this silly timberwolf mechanic. 

How do we turn off the timberwolves or make them run away like wolves in episode 1 & 2

Timberwolves run away when you deplete their morale meter. Shots hit decrease their morale more significantly than shots missed, though the latter has some effect too.

The wolves in Episode 3 aren't the same wolves as 1 and 2.  The black wolves in 1 and 2 are solitary, more skittish, and on Green survivor will flee more often than not.  (Come to think of it I don't know that I've ever been attacked on Green..only Capable or Hardened.)    The wolves in Episode 3 are Timberwolves, and when traveling as a pack their morale is much higher than solitary wolves.  They attack even on Green Survivor, and as was stated above you have to break their spirit before they will leave you alone.  A lone Timberwolf in my experience will always run away from you, mainly because you just killed all his friends and he's learned his lesson.

The first wolf, the one eating a deer, is the only one who ever gave me trouble on a Green playthrough of Episode 1. Though, you are right, the wolves in Episode 2 never attacked me, but Old Bear has no issues with trying to eat your face off. And I wasn't willing to risk chasing wolves from kills they were guarding, since the description of Green Survivor clearly says "Wildlife may attack, but are less aggressive.". In Episode 3, the first black pelted wolves, going to Molly's barn at the start, did give me some issues on my Green Survivor run, about the same as they did on my Capable Survivor run, though the rest after those 2 ran away. The Timber wolves in Episode 3 are less aggressive in Green, seem to be easier to break Morale on, and the packs are small, very small, compared to Capable or Hardened.

Would love to turn this feature off. Its breaking immersion, its annoying, and its pissing me off that you are literally looking at a meter, and working just to deplete it. You know you dont get a lucky shot in, you need to watch the meter and countdown. And if you run out of bullets, you are dead. Nothing else works, period. Contrary to everything said in the game itself.

Scripted wolf attacks while working on the survivors, sure. But delete the meter.

My game must be bugged, I wasn’t listening to the story when the father gave me the rosary I went outside and seen a Timberwolf take off running, I figured the rosary was to keep them away somehow. But after further research they are supposed to attack in packs ? Everytime I get anywhere near one it takes off running scared I havnt had a single encounter the entire episode...now I have to start over to get the wolf pack achievement
