On January 12, 1995 wolves returned to Yellowstone, 50 years after their extirpation. Mollie Beattie, the first female director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service, carried the first Canadian born wolf into The Park’s experimental acclimation enclosure, Alpha Female Wolf No. 5. From that day forward, their lives would be forever connected. This is the true story of Mollie’s Pack.
Mollie’s Pack is a thrilling feature documentary derived from primary 16mm film footage -recovered and restored for the first time – and in-depth interviews with the key players at the center of the historic Yellowstone Wolf reintroduction. The narrative follows the eternally interconnected stories of Mollie Beattie and Wolf #5 – the alpha female of the Mollie’s Pack.
Mollie’s Beattie was the first female director of the US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS). Her unprecedented journey included a brief stint as a fashion model in New York and a life-changing Outward Bound expedition that inspired her to pursue a career in environmental science and conservation.
