The Wolf

The Wolf


The wolf is a misunderstood animal with a
long history of persecution. His eerie howl is one of the most awe-inspiring wilderness
sounds. While its numbers are few in the United States, the wolf is still quite common in northern
Canada. Wolves on arctic islands are often snow-white, while those found in eastern forests
are usually grey-brown. Wolves are gregarious and family life is highly organized. The dominant
wolf holds his tail high and eats first. Other members usually know their place – so, fights
are uncommon. Pups are born in a den and may be cared for by several members of the family
group. For more information about the wolf, contact the Canadian Wildlife Service, Ottawa.
