Big Brown, 778M, was the last in the direct line of the Druid Peak pack of wolves in Yellowstone National Park. He was 9.5 years old when he was shot and killed outside of the park in November 2016. The Druids live on in the blood of many wolves but the death of Big Brown means the end of an era. He was the alpha male of the Slip and Slide pack at the time of his death.
