love the update from Kathie.Thumbs Up

I just saw a repeat of "In the Valley of the Wolves"

http://www.pbs.org/wnet/nature/episodes/in-the-valley-of-the-wolves/video-full-episode/4678/

What an amazing pack of wolves.Love  37 members at one time.Wow  I think quite the ambassadors and teachers.  For 14 years!  I feel lucky to be on the earth at the same time.  So sad to read that mange is part of their demise and happy their legend lives on.

Only two months ago, there were 11 wolves in the pack. But after the alpha female was killed by another pack, the old alpha male wandered off rather than breed with one of the other female wolves that were his offspring. He also suffered from a bad case of mange. Mange is a skin infection caused by a mite that leads to hair loss. In animals with weakened immune systems, it can be fatal. Seven other females in the pack also had mange, and all but one have died either from mange or been killed by other packs.

“They’re down to one, and that one probably won’t make it through the winter,” Smith said.
