Our wolves are howling so mournfully that I am unable to concentrate. They are howling desperately. Constantly. Two of them are down in the woods (a three minute walk) having their pictures taken and the family has been broken up. For all of an hour, but that doesn’t matter. Wolves are such emotional creatures!!! The reunion will be passionate as always. Back together again! Family, is everything.
In films we are shown over and over that they are superb predators, which is true, but rarely are we shown the depth of their emotional lives. I keep encouraging natural history filmmakers to show that aspect of them. It is important.
