UnknownJunction Butte PackJohn Metzler6 wolves chasing bison44°54'26.451" N 110°15'4.949" WGPS coordinates in Location of Photo field are my shooting location; pin is where I believe the pack was. I realize these are probably too small for scientific purposes - we were roughly a mile from them. I have 20 or more pictures from this chase; this is the penultimate before they disappeared behind the ridge (running toward northwest). We were with (the amazing) Amanda Evans of Yellowstone Forever Institute (aevans@yellowstone.org). Please contact me if you want other photos from the sequence. You're free to use them however you want - I'm just a guy on vacation lucky enough to see something amazing.2019-07-192019-08-04

1118FMiscellaneousRalph Henry1118F crossing NE Entrance RoadPebble CreekThis wolf was seen crossing the NE Entrance Road between the Pebble Creek and Thunderer trailheads. The wolf has a collar, and had an injured right front leg (wasn’t putting any weight on it). Based on the injury, and the fact that she appeared to be traveling alone, I’m wondering if it is 1118F (would love to know if that is correct).2019-06-012019-06-04

UnknownWapiti Lake PackMichael JanzenLone wolfHayden ValleyThis wolf was in Hayden Valley between Trout and Alum creek. I've seen what appears to be the same wolf two other times in tbe same area in the last month, most recently on June 16th. I watched it squat urinate with all four legs on the ground so I'm assuming it's either female or a subordinate male.2019-05-262019-06-19
UnknownPanzer GnauckTwo unknown wolves familiar with each other joined up to howl across the Soda Butte and Lamar valleys.Between Hitching Post and the confluence of Soda Butte/Lamar. North of the road.This was the first time I think I have seen these two, although in January I might have been very close to the Grey. Hard saying.2019-05-262019-06-10

UnknownWapiti Lake PackDaniel GettisUnkown wolf traveling near Canyon VillageIt crossed the road between Norris and Canyon, heading north. About 1/2 mile east of the intersection at Canyon VillageI was driving from Norris to Canyon Village to check-in for the night. About 1/2mi before reaching the stop signs at Canyon Village intersection, I spotted this wolf to my south. I could tell it wanted to cross the road, so I started backing up. By this time someone was behind me, and 1 other car going the opposite direction had stopped about 150-200ft ahead of me. The wold had plenty of room to cross, and was very calm. I believe it could hear my camera's shutter clicking, and as it was going towards the road it was heading directly to my car. It passed about 3ft in front of my car, stopped just off the other side of the road, stared at me for a few seconds, and then slowly trotted off to the north in the area between Cascade Lake and Canyon Campground.2019-05-182019-05-25

UnknownPanzer GnauckGrey pup interacting with coyotes.Elk CreekI wanted to share this photo for a couple of reasons. First, I had not seen this type of behavior before. Second it shows the size difference between a 10 month old wolf pup and coyotes. My guess is that the coyotes are around 30 pounds, while the pup is probably 70 LBS.2019-02-282019-05-08

UnknownPanzer GnauckGrey Pup @ Elk CreekElk CreekI was just leaving Floating Island Lake when I saw a black running Northeast from the highway. When I got to the first Elk Creek pull-out a guide was there watching another grey and black. Four wolves total had taken a young cow elk. This pup was fascinated with four coyotes, especially the female in estrus. It ended up playing with them for a bit then ran straight at us.2019-02-282019-03-04

926FMike HoltMy last photo of 926. 12 days later she was killedYellowstone National ParkWe saw her briefly and and heard howls from her pack (the Lamars) early that morning, so we knew she was probably still around the area. Then, at 11:30AM she stepped out into the open; looking healthier and more beautiful than ever before. She had a tendency to go out scouting and hunting alone. But she started wandering outside the park and 12 days later she had the terrible misfortune of coming face to face with a hunter, who shot her dead; thus depriving countless visitors to the park an opportunity to see a wolf in the wild - as 926 tended to tolerate the presence of humans much closer than most wolves.2018-11-122019-06-29
