Here are a some previously posted pics that I have taken over the years that depict Wolf behavior. Wolf, like many other predators, recognize other predators signs by smell and by sight. In these pics you will see how they respond to Bear and Cougar signs. I find this stuff interesting and maybe some of you will as well.

PLEASE READ THE PICTURE FILE COMMENTS ABOVE EACH PICTURE FOR A DESCRIPTION.

I can only imagine that the Wolf are looking at the bite and claw marks left by these two Bears. Any Bear that stands upright and takes a bite out of a tree 6 ft. up. Is a very real and serious threat to any Wolf cub. The Wolf's body language shows this and even these three young cubs recognize the seriousness of this sign.

Here are the pics of the two Bears that marked the tree. The first Bear takes a bite and then later that year another much bigger Bear takes a bite of his own above the first Bears bite. Aside from the clawing and biting. There must have been 2-3 other Bears that I got pictures of clawing and rubbing that tree as well. A Cougar also made a scratch pile to the right of that tree.

All canines will often scent roll in strong scents, doesn't matter if it's urine, feces or dead stuff -- very good photos of the behavior. Excellent catch on the bears also leaving their mark.

Cool photos and observations.

I was interested to see the striking two-tone coat of the molting bear. Down here the cinnamon bears turn blond as the year wears on, but grow a new cinnamon coat in the spring, and wear the old coat as a mantle, just like yours. What's strange is that your black bear molts into a lighter colored coat, while the cinnamon bears here molt into a darker coat.
