Yellowstone's wolf packs—Cinnabar Pack

Cinnabar became an official Park Pack in July 2016. 910M from 8 Mile joined a Montana collared wolf (gray female). Cinnabar had at least 3 black pups in 2016. Although we lack consistent sightings, 910M and the MT gray female are the suspected breeding pair and they are accompanied by another adult black wolf.

Although the white tip is gone, he is now identifiable by his radio-collar and white "beard". After spending much of 2014 apart from 8 Mile, he has rejoined the pack as alpha male until 2016, when he left for Cinnabar. He is believed to be alpha male of Cinnabar.
