This stunning capture of a wolf in Wyoming, USA was captured and posted to Reddit by photographer Carollyn Churchill. In the animal kingdom, lone wolves are typically older wolves driven from the pack, perhaps by an alpha male, or young adults in search of new territory. Rather than openly challenge the dominance of the pack leaders, many young wolves between the ages of 1 and 4 years leave their family to search for a pack of their own.
