Wolf packs as they typically occur in the wild are family groups who are shaped the same way as human families are shaped; a breeding pair (parents) with their offspring (children). The parents have, pertaining to their children, an evident, natural leading role – ‘leading’ in the meaning of ‘guiding’, and not ‘predominate’. They therefore are not a pack as a group of animals with a rigid, force-based dominance hierarchy and one absolute leader (or leading pair) that fought its way to the top, and so there are no alpha’s, beta’s or omega’s. Wild wolves also do not eat in hierarchical ways.
There are of course few exceptions. For example, sometimes related or unrelated wolves join an already existing pack. Usually the newcomers naturally accept the breeding pair as the leaders of the pack, but sometimes the newcomers try to gain pack leadership, which can result in a kind of dominance hierarchy. Same goes for when two seperate packs join up and become one big pack. In those situations there is no natural pack composition left, which usually results in the dominance hierarchy I wrote about, where terms like alpha and omega do apply. Here the wolves will most likely eat in hierarchical ways.
