    ridstars - some doco makers present footage to show the story they want to tell and it may or may not reflect what is actually happening.

    May I recommend a book by Farley Mowat called "never cry wolf" (don't bother with the movie - that's a hollywood fantasy. Anyway Farley went out and lived with the wolves, documented what they did, copied some of what they did, he even tried living on mice, there's more nutrition in a mouse if you eat it whole. If you skin and gut it and only eat the muscle - you will not have enough nutritients to live ie not enough vitamins and minerals.

    So he observed a dominant FEMALE. She was in charge of a small family pack. There was not enough resources where he was for there to be large packs or to support "alpha males". Bossy males got booted out and only allowed back for matings.

    Besides, if we were going with the alpha/dominant theory, in a normal pack isnt it usually a pair, i.e. a male and a female....not a single dog. ITs the parents I thought...

    There's often a male and female but it depends on how much food is around. If there is only enough to feed one adult and her puppies, that's all there is in the pack. The male will go off on his own to hunt food.

    Yah, that makes sense.

    I actually watched a really interesting doco about a black wolf at yellowstone park (I think). He did not have a pack for many years and was an "invader" an would father pups in other packs LOL
