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, and 3 black pups. In 2017, we have seen 5 gray pups in the Cinnabar Pack that appear to still be with the pack. [Updated 02/2018]

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.
