Howlin Wolves / Loups qui hurlent [Canis lupus]
Omega Park, Montebello, Quebec, CANADA
(THIS IS A VIDEO--> click on image to play the video on flickr)
This is the wolf pack that consist of a group of 10 Gray Wolves. They are part of the “Surrounded by wolves!”** activity à Omega Park, which is the only accommodation in North America which allows you to spend the night surrounded by a pack of wolves. You can experience all of this from the comfort of your cabin, for a once in a lifetime experience!

The first time we heard them howling, it was the night before at around 4-5 AM. Yellings awaken us all because it was so loud, even behind that thick bay window. This was so impressive that it gave us goose bumps! I wouldn’t like to hear something like that while being in a small tent in the woods…

I was taking some shots of the wolves when they started getting excited and yelling. I switched to video mode and captured the last minute of the ceremony.

The wolf that was howling, I think it’s the juvenile one (wolf cub). You can also see the “Alpha” male appearing at around 40 s. when he crosses a wooden gate. We can recognize him by it’s whiteish back and feet, thus its nickname “Pattes blanches” (White feet).
This experience will remain in our memories forever!

P.s. the word "Omega" also means the ranking of subordinates in the wolf pack, where the omega male is one of the most submissive individual and often being harassed by the other members of the pack.
