DescriptionEasier - A wolf is a wild animal that looks like a dog. Wolves are in the same family as pet dogs. Wolves live in remote forests. They hunt in packs and feed on deer, elk, and reindeer.
Harder - A wolf is a carnivorous mammal. When hunting, they often howl as a signal to other wolves in their pack. Females have four to six pups each spring. In many areas, the wolves are nearly gone because they were killed by humans. Wolf recovery programs are reintroducing wolves to remote forests. Many people such as ranchers are unhappy about these wolves. They say that the wolves will kill their cattle and sheep. Others see the reintroduction as important in reestablishing a balance in nature.
