annual event? I suppose people need to record
this natural event for prosperity. I'd rather
sit in front of the computer, and admire the
awesome photos on SP.

Hey, some of these people might be taking
photos ... FOR SP!! :)

No, this is the Lamar Road every evening when the wolves are in town.

Making matters worse, the Slough Creek Pack has a secondary den where they happened to be raising their pups in June 2008, a site clearly visible from the outhouses at the turnout to the campground. Not exactly remote!

It reminds me of that old 1970s song, "Runnin'
With the Pack.'

As far as the outhouses go, I hope everything
comes out okay!!

It is nice to see people who love seeing the Wolves. I am glad these wolves are in park boundaries where they can't be shot at with a gun! Sad and disgusting how our government is allowing each day wolves to be murdered by humans...taking them off the ESA and not giving them any protection was a horrible thing they did!..I hope they will restore it back to what it was.. where they get full protection.
Did not mean to rant..but the Wolves are a very sensitive subject to me..I LOVE them!
Thank you.

You'll be happy to know that wolf-watching in Yellowstone makes a greater contribution to the Wyoming economy than hunting (all hunting, combined) does. Surprising, but there it is.
