Wolf down these wolf facts
Wolves usually mate for life. In the northern United States, the breeding season is from January to March. It’s earlier for wolves living farther south. The female gives birth to 4 to 6 pups.
Wolves live in packs of about 4 to 9 members. When pups reach the age of three, they can either continue living in the pack or leave to find their own territory and form their own. Each pack has an alpha male and an alpha female, and they are the only ones who breed.
There used to be a lot of gray wolves across North America, but they were hunted so much that they became endangered. But due to conservation efforts, the gray wolf population continues to grow!
