Anonymous asked:
I have always wondered where young wolves go once they leave to find a mate? Do they start their own pack or join another?

As offspring begin to mature, they usually disperse from the pack as young as 9 months of age. Most disperse when 1-2 years old, and few remain beyond 3 years. They typically wander off as far as possible from their parent’s pack, which is like an instinct to keep the gene pool healthy.

When they disperse from the pack, they are a ‘lone wolf’ for a while, until they have find a mate to start their own family with. Although it is not common, a wolf sometimes joins another already existing pack.

Also, some yearlings stay in their parents’ pack, even when their parents have new litter.
