The Wisdom of Wolves: What it Means to be a Leader
Original caption and source of the photograph:
“A massive pack of 25 timberwolves hunting bison on the Arctic circle in northern Canada. In mid-winter in Wood Buffalo National Park temperatures hover around -40C. The wolf pack, led by the alpha female, travel single-file through the deep snow to save energy. The size of the pack is a sign of how rich their prey base is during winter when the bison are more restricted by poor feeding and deep snow. The wolf packs in this National Park are the only wolves in the world that specialise in hunting bison ten times their size. They have grown to be the largest and most powerful wolves on earth.

What may be true is a female leading the pack. That is worth noting. What is sheer embellishment is that the sick or weak are leading. Wolf packs in reality would have the weak following at the back of the line.
Thank God we have strong leaders at the front of our pack leading. Don't fall for this sappy cabal dope about the weak doing the leading. Makes for a touching story, but in reality, ask yourselves, is this the way it works in real life? Who is leading our pack and what are their characteristics? Let's not get "wolf" backwards, and get in the "flow" of how things really work in life.
