    A fantastic Link/website

    Interpretation, Unless the lead dog, always looking up somebody’s ass.

    What isn’t being said here is that the old and sick will be the first to die in an attack, the natural order of things nobody likes to talk about.

      Oh, that turned my head around. I initially thought it was about protecting the elders and the sick. I guess survival of the fittest is always in play. Yet, the notion of the elders and the sick being sacrificed for the good of the pack would only hold true if attacks came from directly ahead, no? We know they can come from any location, even directly behind. So maybe, just maybe, part of the wolves’ objective is to protect everyone they can. I’m sure there are workings in nature so complex that perhaps we, in our 21st century lives, busy and insulated, might not be fully aware of. I am not done studying this wolf strategy. So very interesting.

    Wisdom should always lead

    The protectors of that wisdom is right behind them learning for their day up front

    • galen says:

      Are you saying leading must always be from up front?


      • Enemy of the State says:

        I was taught ( not saying it’s right) but
        If you ain’t first , yer last

        I would think it’s wise they are out front
        They won’t get left behind
        They know the way , and many threats etc through experience
        And protected by the entire pack
        And if one were to fail or fall by the side
        The entire pack will know

        I guess there’s many ways to look at the possibilities of why

        So much to learn from nature..

          Yeah, and likely there’s no one method and each incident has its own set of circumstances, with details known only to the wolves. Agreements, and strategies, and plan B’s. Who knows? But I hope they always survive, beautiful and mysterious as they are.
