Minor Yellowstone wolf update

4/19/96.

Park officials say they will probably never know exactly
how the female wolf R36 was lethally scalded. She was
not found dead next to a hot spring. She was able to get
out of the thermal area, and died some distance away.

In other news, the Druid Peak Pack has slowly drifted north-
ward out of the Park into the Absaroka/Beartooth Wilderness
in Montana. This pack was placed in the Rose Creek enclosure,
last January, and was *very* slow to leave when the door was
opened. It took over a week.
