The eastern and western wolves gathered around Kate and Garth. They both seemed nervous and sad. They started the wolf mating rituals, accepting each other's scents, and nibbling on each others ears. Kate all of a sudden backed out, announcing her love for Humphrey. Garth announced his love for Lilly . As the war of the packs started up, the caribou began to stampede, leaving Winston and Tony in their path. Kate and Humphrey saved Winston and Tony but Kate was knocked unconsious by a caribou. Presuming the worst, Humphrey started crying and hugged her. He announced he loved her, leading the rest of the pack in a mournful requiem to Kate. Kate woke up and Winston and Tony banned the law against mating restrictions and the packs were united on account of Lilly and Garth's marriage.
