Please cite your information...

I found this:

http://books.google.com/books?id=qGmTn2jZQqQC&pg=PA70&lpg=PA70 wrote:Wolves have an amazing sense of smell. They can track a moose by scent up to a mile away. Scientists estimate that a wolf's sense of smell is 100 times better than a human's sense of smell. In some ways, wolves actually "see" the world through their noses.

They also have acute hearing. Scientists estimate that a wolf can hear another wolf howl up to six miles away on the open tundra and up to 4 miles away in a forest.
