Tracking The Scent is a painting of two Canadian timber wolves tracking the scent of their prey on a snowy trail. The timberwolves have a carnivore diet for both large and small mammals such as caribou, musk oxen, deer, moose, mice, rabbits, and squirrels.
Tracking The Scent is a visual representation of painter Glen Loates’ lifetime dedication to the preservation of wildlife and nature. The WWF describes this species as an almost extinct species, although it was once “the world’s most greatly distributed” mammal. The Canadian timber wolf is also known as the Northwestern wolf, Mackenzie Valley Wolf, or Alaskan timber wolf.
