Lakeside Prowlers

The Timber Wolf is the largest canine native to North America and a greatly misunderstood animal. Though wolves are traditionally vilified as the terror of the winter woods and as stalkers of lone humans, no real evidence of wolves attacking people exists.

Rather than being feared, wolves should be admired for the cooperative organization of their society. We could learn from them.

Wolf packs, essentially an extended family, are governed by a strict social code and ruled by the lead male and the dominant female. The leader controls the pack's activities, which range from the care, protection and education of the young to the organization of the hunt.

In this painting, the wolves have been distracted during an afternoon hunt. They stop at the edge of a frozen lake to look back and decide if the disturbance is a threat.
