Wolves have one of the most elaborate social organizations of all animals. They live in packs, cohesive units led by a dominant male and female who remain mated for life. The pups are born in spring and are treated warmly by their elders, from whom they learn survival and social skills.

Wolves are not the savage killers of legend, they kill what they need and little more. Unfortunately much anti-wolf sentiment exists which is based on deep-seated emotions. As North America was settled, much of the wolf’s wild prey was replaced by domesticated stock. In the absence of natural prey, wolves turned to occasional sheep and cattle. The misunderstood wolves have been the target of massive poisoning, trapping and hunting campaigns, sanctioned until recently by government bounties. It is ironic that primitive hunters who competed with the wolves every day regarded their presence with respect.

Wolf medicine can teach us loyalty and discipline; that true freedom comes from creating your life with harmony and discipline.
