Lone Wolf Spotted Howling On The Road In Yellowstone National Park

Well, that’s not your everyday occurrence, even if it’s in a national park with loads of wildlife running around. Lone wolves are an amazing animal and a fairly rare encounter. Even when you are lucky enough to come across one, it’s quite unusual that they hang around for more than a few seconds. It’s also usually at quite a distance.

An apex predator and the largest living canine species that are incredibly smart. Their hunting methods are very advanced, using strategy in packs to hunt down large animals. By far one of the most lethal species in America.

This video comes to us near Mammoth Hot Springs in Yellowstone National Park. A tourist is filming from their vehicle as a single wolf runs through the woods over some rocks. The video pans away from the walking wolf to another standing in the middle of the road.

Then something amazing takes place and it is nothing short of perfect as the lone wolf on the road lets out the picture-perfect howl. The full facial expression is into it. The cool thing about wolf howls is it is known that they are purely for communication. They use them to warn and solidify their packs, but it’s pretty incredible to capture one this close.

The wolf howls some more and then it takes off in the direction of the other one, just a majestic beast of the field.

“Wolf pack near Mammoth Hot Springs, Yellowstone National Park April 2022. The wolf walked down the street and then started howling. The other wolves ran by as well but were in the rocks and about 20 yards from the street. We counted a total of 8 wolves. The video was taken inside our car in the evening around 7pm. This is possibly the alpha wolf of the 8 Mile or the Rescue Creek Pack.”

Yellowstone just can offer it all… if you haven’t been, I’d book a trip ASAP.
