"Hunts are often dangerous endeavors for adult werewolves. Werewolf packs being larger require larger and usually more dangerous game to sustain family groups. As a result adult werewolves in larger family groups will form creches for young werewolves. A single, usually elder werewolf will remain at the den site to monitor the young while the group is away hunting. In smaller family groups subsisting of 3 adults or fewer, pups are often left unattended in carefully selected den sites. Young werewolves are often present for the pre-hunt rally , the contagious raised excitement of the pack, leaving several rambunctious young werewolves in the care of one overwhelmed adult or left to their own devices."

I have been a Grand-Elder in my tribe for many years - the honour of caring for the Young is given only to a few - we have been known to rescue the young that are not being  appropriately guarded - I have been shocked at the way the Abusers of the Young  - in Humankind - are even permitted to go on living after their crimes - this should not be - it should be seen everywhere that the young of a tribe are Sacred beings
