TIL African painted wolves hold meetings and vote on when it's a good time to go out looking for food. Usually if the pack leader decides one way or the other, they go along with it, but can be overridden if enough others disagree. And they also make sure to bring plenty of food back, not just for the young, but to care for the injured and elderly too.

I eventually left empty handed. I suppose I'll have to visit a dedicated health food store or mail order some.
