This is the saddest wolf news I’ve heard and that’s saying something in a season of bad wolf news. The once mighty Druids, who ruled the Lamarr Valley in Yellowstone for so many years, the wolves that people came from all over the world to view, who’ve had several documentaries made of their lives, are now down to just one wolf. Six Druids are missing.
The Druids were hit with mange and lost pups to parvo but this could be the end of them as a pack. How unbelievable this would happen now when wolves are being hunted for the first time since their reintroduction and over 500 wolves died in the Northern Rockies in 2009. I have no words to describe the sadness I feel about the demise of the legendary Druid Peak Pack, though their genes will live on in their offspring.
