Figure 8
Figure 8.  Movement data collected by Global Positioning System collars on wolf pups 860 and 820 (locations once per 15 minutes and once per hour), breeding female wolf 850 (locations once per hour), and yearling male wolf 840 (locations once per 30 minutes) from 24 February-12 March 1997; central Minnesota. Lines connect sequential locations and show the breeding female circumvented her pups during this period. Stippled area represents forest. Lower map is an expanded view of the upper map; upper map has locations only from wolf 850. We assumed her territory boundaries (based on 327 locations) were represented by her outermost points.
