Never Cry Wolf
Why we chose Never Cry Wolf
Farley Mowat is sent on a mission to the Arctic to investigate deaths of arctic Caribou by Wolves
Mowat discovers a den of a wolf family that he focuses on mainly for the rest of his studies. The family is made up of George, Angeline, their 4 pups, and Unlce Albert
Mowat discovers that the wolves mainly feed off of small animals such as mice. He also discovers that the wolves rarely feeds on Caribou, and mainly on sick and weak Caribou.
Over the course of his studies, Mowat befriends several eskimos, such as Mike who he lives with for a short while in the beggining, and Ootek, who he goes to for advice on wolves.
Why We Thought These Moments Were Important
Mowat's first encounter with George was important because it led to the finding of the wolf den.
Discovering that wolves only eat weak caribou was important because it played a large role in preserving caribous.
Meeting Mike was important because it led to the meeting of Ootek who worked closely and added to Mowat's research.
Discovering that wolves ate mice was important because it showed that they were largely dependant on not only caribous, but also mice during the long summer months.
Mowat's discovery of the predator-prey relationship between wolves and caribous was important because it shows how intelligent both these animals are.

Farley Mowat was sent to the subarctic Barren Lands to investigate the reason behind if the wolves played a role in decreasing the deer populations, and if they did; Why is it happening? Mowat's stay at the Barren lands not only helped him with his investigations, but also discovered the true affectionate nature of a family of wolves. As Mowat becomes more familiar with the amount of wolf slaughter taking place in the Arctic, it was clear to him that humans have no place in their society.

...And the answer
Length: 246 pages
The reason we chose Never Cry Wolf was because of the shared interest in the topic of the book, a man (Farley Mowat) studying wolves in the wild . Some of us had an interest in wolves in general, while others were interested in how he would study wolves.
Although we chose the book because we thought the topic would be interesting, we expected a story which was about a man living just like a wolf, or in other words, a boring retelling of events, filled with words that could make even the most interesting stories seem colorless. However, what we received upon reading was a humorous, well written, and touching story about a man who changed the reputation of the wolf as we knew it.
After returning from the Barren Lands, did Mowat's research impact or lead to any other significant events to the wolves or other animals.
It was reported that The Canadian Wildlife Services poisioned the wolf den which Mowat was observing during his stay at the
"Wolf House Bay" in order to control the over-population of wolves.
