Wolves are opportunists, you will hear this statement about wolf predation, taking whatever prey is available and weak at the moment, and we will say this over and over again when referencing social interaction. If a higher ranking wolf looks weaker, a lower ranking wolf will take advantage of it. This is the nature of social rank hierarchies and why we are diligent with the management of Behind the Scenes situations that alter an individual wolf’s status. Malik is doing well, interacting with his pack, and doing what lower ranking wolves do, watch and act when possible. Of course, when Grizzer gets up, he may redirect based on Malik’s actions, but it is all part of the social dynamics of a wolf pack. The Nanny Application deadline has passed, and Assistant Wolf Curator, Donna Prichard and I are meeting to organize teams. We will have the award letters mailed by February, 15th. The Behavioral Observation team has a few positions remaining, so, you will continue to see this program advertised
