In the words of the person filming, "Some of the members of the Wapati Wolf Pack were feeding on a bison carcass. They had taken one of the traffic cones several days prior from the road. I though the wolves were leaving the area. Instead, they grabbed the cone and started playing with it. The end of the video shows the pups playing on a snowbank."
Indeed, much of wolf play involves the kind of "tug-of-war" or "takeaway" games seen here, with several wolves grabbing something and trying to keep it away from the others. In fact, play is an important part of any wolf pack's socialization, and in particular, of the development of cub's cognitive skills.
