To vim expert, I need help

I've searched in help doc of vim but i can't find solution for my problem. Maybe this is just my ignorance or vim doc isn't comprehensive enough, i don't know. Anyway, my question:

How to delete highlighted search result in vim?

e.g. if i want to delete word "wolf" in file , i just search w/ command:
/wolf [enter]

and then what should i type next to delete word "wolf" ?

Thanks 4 the answer.

hi there,

this was not his question. I suppose that the idea was delete all wolf entries in a file.
So, my solution:


probably, there must be another 100000000 solutions for this problem.
