The most recent data available (end of 2013) indicate that the NRM wolf population contains at least 1,691 wolves, at least 320 packs, and at least 78 breeding pairs.

Wolves, Wolf Pictures, Wolf Facts Wolves are legendary because of their spine-tingling howl, which they use to communicate. A lone wolf howls to attract the attention of his pack, while communal howls may send territorial messages from one pack to another. Some howls are confrontational. Much like barking domestic dogs, wolves may simply begin howling because a nearby wolf has already begun. The 5 Most Endangered Canine Species Domesticated dogs are some of the most popular animals on the planet, but their cousins in the wild aren’t always as beloved. For thousands of years humans have persecuted wolves, jackals, dingoes, foxes and other members of the family Canidae, pushing many species into or close to extinction. Here are five of the most endangered canine species and subspecies, three of which only continue to exist because a few people and organizations have taken extraordinary efforts to save them. 1.

Wolf Pair Bonds Wolf reproductive bonds easily rival or exceed typical human marital bonds in their strength, and the bond between primary, i.e., “alpha,” breeders is the most important relationship in a group. The following scenes, from my 2008 observations of the Toklat (East Fork) family of Denali National Park during the annual sexual activities in late February and early-mid March, illustrate the close bond between the present alpha male and female.

It is worth emphasizing that close emotional ties and physical contact are not unique to the sexual activities, however.

So I have tried to keep most of the videos short so that dial up users can have access to most of the video clips. The music video, however, is well worth the wait which should not be a problem for high-speed internet users.
