How the pack was found

The naturalist staff scouting for wolves on Tuesday and Wednesday night heard a full pack response at this location both nights. 

What happened at the howl?

We moved the line of cars from the Outdoor Theatre to the Brewer Lake parking area and centered just west of Opeongo Road.  Once everyone was in place, we started the first howling sequence without success.  After a fifteen minute break, the naturalists again howled without success.  

Comments from the Chief Park Naturalist

Another disappointing night.  This pack responded after one single howl on Wednesday night with a long, extended howl.  But where were they Thursday night? Had they moved? Were they out hunting? Interestingly, an adult wolf was heard from one of our staff stationed at Beaver Pond Trail parking lot.
