Long Daily Movements of Wolves, Canis lupus, During Pup Rearing

L. David Mech, H. Dean Cluff

Abstract


Wolves, Canis lupus, on Ellesmere Island traveled a daily round-trip distance of 40.2 km from their den to a landfill during July 2008, plus an undetermined distance hunting after leaving the landfill. Although long travels by Wolves are well known, this appears to be the first documentation of long daily movements by Wolves rearing pups.
