Abstract

A pupless arctic Wolf pack (two adults, three yearlings) studied 5-30 July 1993 on Ellesmere Island, Northwest Territories, traveled nomadically around an area >381 km2 but the alpha pair sometimes left the yearlings at a rendezvous site. All pack members hunted Arctic hares. The alpha pair sometimes fed the yearlings, the alpha male doing so more than the alpha female.
