She Wolf

A Yellowstone Wolf howls in the snow.  Wolves make four types of sounds: howl, bark, whimper, and growl.  Howling is the most familiar wolf vocalization to everyone.
The Lamar Canyon pack is one of the most famous of all Yellowstone's wolf packs for one unusual reason: its leader was an especially powerful female. Nat Geo WILD retraces the life of this incredible animal, the She Wolf, who was forced to leave her original clan and strike out on her own when she was still a young cub, confronting Yellowstone's beautiful but merciless wilderness alone.
