HAS ANYONE GOTTEN TO THE PART ABOUT THE WOLVES YET???? YIKES!
For those of you who haven't read it, I won't give a spoiler. But I visited the Saskatchewan museum during Christmas break, and they had a diorama display of wolves. The information presented in the diorama included the notation that, in the winter, different wolf packs that would normally keep away from each other sometimes band together in huge packs as large as 40 for hunting.
I haven't found anything else online to verify or disprove the possibile truthfulness of Pavel & Peter's story!
