Who let the Dogs out?

Despite Thesis’ poor tracking skills, the signs left by the wolf pack are impossible to miss. There’s a large pack hunting through these woods. One night he hears baying a few miles ahead, but the fierce barking and snarling soon makes way to whines and whimpers.
The next day Thesis discovers what had happened the night before.
There are signs of a camp and all around the bodies of bloodied wolves. There must be over a dozen. One of them though is monumental. Probably the pack leader, this wolf must have stood over six feet tall at the shoulder.
Thesis takes heart in the fact that there are no human bodies amongst the wolf corpses. He also finds strength in the notion that this camp is recent and was probably made by his friends.
He’s less than a day behind them.

Just as well to have missed the wolf fighting - I don't usually come out too well in those ones.
