    It was just past the breeding season. The alpha male, Seneca was tired. He was grumpy. He just was not in the mood to deal with younger upstarts like Tristan. Dominance and submission are ritualized sometimes intensely aggressive behaviors which help maintain order in the pack. This may look violent, but it is just all show. Waving jaws around like this rarely ever leads to even the slightest injury.
