Record #183393:

Urine-marking and ground-scratching by free-ranging Arctic wolves (Canis lupus arctos) in summer / L. David Mech.

Title: Urine-marking and ground-scratching by free-ranging Arctic wolves (Canis lupus arctos) in summer / L. David Mech.
Author(s): Mech, L. David.
Date: 2006.
In: Canadian Field-Naturalist. (2006.), Vol. 120(4) (2006)
Abstract: Reports observation of ground-scratching and urine marking in Arctic wolf (Canis lupus arctos) pack on Ellesmere Island, during 16 summers between 1986-2005. Notes that incidence of marking and scratching is greatest when non-pack wolves are present. Observations of urine-marking of food remains support conclusion from captive wolf study that such marking signals lack of edible food.
