Typically one female wolf in a pack has a litter of about seven pups each year. This varies, in some packs more than one female may bring off a litter.
In some cases a pair of wolves may not form a pack or belong to a pack, and will bring off a litter of pups.
Alaska is home to an estimated 7,000 to 11,000 wolves.
