Wolves live in packs and within those packs is a very specific hierarchy. The alpha male and female are the leaders of the pack, the beta wolves are underneath them, and then there are several wolves ranked below them that go all the way down to the omega wolves.

The Great Wolf Divide: A Predator’s Dilemma is a film from Sawtooth Legacy Films that asks the question: can humans peacefully coexist with wolves and other predators?
Certain criteria needs to be met for animals to make an area their home. We’ve seen this with bears choosing their dens for the winter and owls choosing their nesting sites. The same holds true for wolves when choosing their dens.
Each Spring, a site is chosen in which to build a den. We don’t know for sure who chooses the site, but most likely it’s the pregnant alpha female.
