Meleeing is a pretty useless way of dealing with the animals in this game.

Hence, I left it until I finished the story, so I could focus on it after.

To get a melee kill you must strike an animal (best with the wolves) with your shovel.

To do so, you flick the thumbstick on the barrel of the gun (not the back one).

Best place to do this is by selecting Chapter ONE of the game on a Normal setting. You'll fly the plane and flare gun the first few wolves, but after that you can melee the NEXT twenty wolves that come at you from down the little hill next to the crash site.

Since the game waits for you to dig up the items that you need, they almost keep coming forever. I bonked over 20 of them right at the beginning (got the achievement exactly at 20, but was in the mood by then).

Yes, there are many other good spots to do it, but since I needed all 20, this was the best spot to do it without wasting my health for an initial playthrough.

Cheers
