Demise of the Druid pack

The wolf pack that has dominated Yellowstone's Lamar Valley almost since reintroduction is now virtually extinct. Read it here at Ralph Maughan's Wildlife News. It's a very violent soap opera out there.

Fascinating. Oddly sad, although it doesn't seem to be an issue to the overall success of the wolf reintroduction.

And it's fun to read these paragraphs out of context.

"Six other Druids are missing,... We can only hope that they are somehow surviving on their own, but they are ravaged by mange, and scavenging is a dangerous business...

But, the Druid bloodlines will, hopefully, carry on... The Blacktail alpha and beta males, “Big Brown” and “Medium Gray,” were both born Druids. They are the sons of the late Druid alpha 569F (and, therefore, the grandsons of legendary Druid alpha 21M, who died in 2004)."
