VIDEO: Excited Family Spots Yellowstone Wolf Pack on the Road!
October 14, 2020
A family of tourists hailing from Pittsburgh, PA got a rare glimpse of a Yellowstone wolf pack crossing the road, and their delight at seeing them is simply infectious.
The video was filmed several days ago, and shows various wolves with different coloring all crossing the road at once.
"There's one, there's another one," the family intones when they see the first solitary black wolf crossing a bend in the road. Then there's another, and another, and another, until the car erupts into delighted screams.
"It's the whole pack," one of the folks in the car says, obviously delighted.
Wolves in Yellowstone are not exactly rare, but they do tend to stay away from roads, at least to a greater degree than bears, who will sometimes stick close to roads (especially females, as it serves to protect their cubs from boars). But seeing a wolf pack cross the road like this is much more rare - so much so that the earlier in the year, when another driver through Yellowstone had a similar encounter, it went viral.
Also, let's all just sit and enjoy the fact that these lovely tourists were respectful of our Park and its wildlife. They didn't try to take a selfy, get out of the car and approach, nor did they get out a bunch of offroad motorcycles and go offroad with them.
