Consequently such strong representations had been made by the Mayor of the Commune to him, as Louvetier, that, notwithstanding his experience told him at once it was a she-wolf, with a litter hard by, he deemed it expedient to bring his hounds to the spot, and make a show at least of hunting, and, if possible, of driving the destructive beast from that district.

When the wolf has covered the female, it is said, the wolf has coupled, the wolf has coupled or lined the she wolf. When they have produced young, they are called a litter of young wolves.
The nipples of the she wolf are called teats. The places where they have scratched up the earth, are called dechaussures, and we say the wolf has torn up such a place. The place where a wolf lies is called his kennel.

Precisely the same time elapses before the she-wolf gives birth to her offspring. Upon Buffon's instance of 73 days, or rather the possibility of such a duration in the gestation of a particular she- wolf, we do not lay much stress when opposed by such strong evidence of the usual period being sixty three days.

Two children suckled by a she-wolf are evidently Romulus and Remus fed by the she-wolf of Mars, and discovered on the banks of the Tiber by the shepherd Faustulus.
