Wolves and Humans

Im in the middle of watching a short documentary about reintroducing wolves into Yellowstone, and it was taking about eh Alpha male of the pack. It said something like:

“She kicked her mother out of the pack, she’s already kicked her sister out of the pack, and she’s in the process of kicking another sister of hers out of the pack.”

And I was wondering if it really is the same kind of thing as a human kicking their family member out of their family, so to speak, since we’re obviously different from wolves. And is it fair to compare the standards of humans to the nature of wolves?

Oh damn… they just found out the Alpha male was killed, shot, and the pack is adopting a new wolf from a totally different pack into theirs. That rarely ever happens, apparently. They test the wolf, playing cat and mouse games, intimidation games, all kinds of things (the wolves, not the people). Wow. Nature is wonderfully amazing. And so many people have to kill it. I really don’t understand that.

“With a wolfish embrace, the deal is sealed. And everyone seems thoroughly delighted with the newcomer.”
