As a general rule, Denali is not very submissive to Maya's dominance. He is more likely to raise his tail, posture his long, lanky body to face off with Maya. Of course, Maya increases the dominant growl, until she eventually moves away. Although, when watching the video for this week's Youtube posting, there was a short parallel gate between Maya and Denali, which is a social bonding behavior. The upcoming months will be interesting. The Center is re instituting a program called Wolf Watch. This program occurs the first Thursday of every month, and involves training program participants in data collection, and having the observers camp out in the auditorium for a night of observation. We hope to offer this program the first Thursday of every month, and be able to interpret the pack dynamics without the influence of wolf care staff interactions with the wolves.
