Yellowstone's wolf packs—Prospect Peak Pack

In February of 2014, SW763M, 821F, and an uncollared gray female left the 8-Mile pack to form the Prospect Peak pack. Both females were observed breeding with SW763M and three pups were observed by early summer. After 871M, the alpha male of the 8-Mile Pack, died in October of 2014, several additional wolves, including three more pups, left 8-Mile and joined the Prospect Peak pack. As of March 2015, four of Prospect Peak's subordinate males (965M, Twin, Dark Black, and Mottled Black) spend time with Lamar Canyon's alpha female, 926F, but continue to go back and forth between the two packs. As of March 2015, this pack is mange-free. [Updated 4/2015]
