Wolves in Lugaru
Wolves are one of the principal enemies in Lugaru. Each wolf pack is presided over by an Alpha Wolf, who is usually the strongest wolf in the pack. Unfortunately, wiser and more suitable candidates are unlikely to be the strongest of the pack, and thus are unable to attain the position of Alpha Wolf.
It is because of the short-sightedness of one particular Alpha Wolf, who maintains his position by brawn rather than intelligence, that the large scale massacre of the rabbits began, without thought to the sustainability of excessive hunting.
