In the last post we saw female wolf 907 (they get numbers from their collars) and two pack members attempt to get an Elk calf for the Junction Butte Pack puppies. After their failure, they did not skulk away in defeat. Instead, it was time for play.

Rick McIntyre, author of the new book “The Rise of Wolf 8,” notes that he has observed over 10 different games wolves play. They play hide and seek, chase me, and a role-reversal where the dominant wolf plays like he or she is the victim while the underling gets to play the dominant role. In today’s video we see 907 and a black yearling playing a number of games.
