While wolves are best known for hunting in packs, they tend to be a lot more solitary in the summer.

The canines will spend long days on their own, scavenging and hunting smaller prey.

It’s also tougher to track wolves during this time of year, thanks to dense vegetation and the fact that they don’t leave many remains from their kills.
