    Wolves are pack animals with an intricate hierarchy. Being canines they eat meat such as elk, however, only 1 in 10 hunts are successful. There are different species of wolves, so i’ll presume you mean grey wolf as it’s the most common and widespread.In the wild, wolves live in their family pack until they are two years old when they will either stay and help with the next litter or (only the Alpha or breeding pair will have puppies) or leave in search of a mate.Abnormal behaviour in a wild grey wolf:1. A lone, very young wolf.2. No fear of humans (wolves are scared of humans).3. any obvious health abnormalities such as lacerations, limps, bad skin etc.4. Aggression towards other pack members (especially in low ranking animals).Abnormalities in captive wolves:1. Over Grooming themselves/others.2. Excess scratching.3. Loss of appetite.4. Weight loss.5. Increased hunger/thirst.6. Excess sleeping.7. Lethargy.8. Aggression9. Depression10. Any stereotypical behaviour such as rocking, pacing, head rolling, swaying, cage biting etc.Those are the pointers i used for my animal behaviour assignment couple of years ago and i passed fine with them.Hope that’s helped!
