Living with wolves
Filmmaker Jim Dutcher and his wife Jamie lived with gray wolves for three years to make this documentary, and their work reveals complex social behavior never before captured on film. You'll observe the dominance of the pack's alpha male and the submissiveness of the omega wolf. You'll see the pack initiate new members, and witness the critical moment when the alpha selects a mate. Perhaps most incredible is the bond developed between the wolves and the Dutchers, who ultimately must move the pack to another reserve in order to keep them alive.
