Uplifting & Heart-Wrenching Stories from Yellowstone's Alpha Wolves with 'Wolf Whisperer' Rick McIntyre The Gabby Reece Show

    • Mental Health

My guest today is an author and "wolf whisperer" Rick McIntyre. Rick is a Naturalist who has been observing wolves in Yellowstone Park since they were reintegrated in 1995.
His fourth book in his wolf series, THE ALPHA FEMALE WOLF, follows female alpha 06 and her two partners, brothers 754 and 755. Rick shares the uplifting and, at times heart-wrenching stories of these wolf families. How they love, cooperate, war, survive, live and even kill. What he demonstrates through these glorious animals is not only how close we are in behavior and how similar our "family" dynamics are, but the most successful packs were the families led by the most helpful and compassionate Alphas. You would think it would be the most aggressive or savage Alphas that dominated, but the wolves remind us that together, and with love, we can live longer, and our communities can thrive with that approach. Enjoy
