  •  Grieving the death of a pack member... (8+ / 0-)

    When you mentioned the Omega, Crissie, I remembered a TV series about a wolf pack that was being prepared for return to the wild.  The Omega died in a battle with a mountain lion.

    The pack grieved for nearly a month.  All play stopped.  Howling sessions became more common as the wolves came together and simply sang for hours, as if trying to call back the Omega...although they clearly knew the Omega was dead.  Even hunting activities lessened.

    It was sad to behold.
