Why are wolves “lone” wolves?

Although wolves are social animals that like to live in happy pack families, some wander the wilderness without ever finding a mate, while others lose their pack members to tragic fates. These lone wolves face many hardships not experienced by those living in packs. Unable to use teamwork to bring down large animals, they must settle for easier-to-kill prey such as birds, beavers, and rodents – mere morsels compared with typical pack feasts. Wherever they wander, lone wolves have to be extra wary: They risk a vicious attack if they enter another pack’s territory.
