So it seems that a decision has been made on what to do about the predicament at hand. They'll seek out the cougars and discover what it is that they may know about the situation and where they may of looked. Now, Tariro has no problem heading out to meet them but if those here want to do it on their own he certainly wasn't going to complain. Looking to everyone, the alpha gives nod before prepping himself to help out back into pack lands. He'll head out toward the mountain once his family has resettled.
// Never fear shadows. They simply mean there is a light somewhere nearby. \\
Indeed horses are things that should not be messed with.. At least that is what Orion thinks when predators are involved. His tail flicks and sways a few times behind him, ears perking forwrad and he takes in a slight breath before nodding and glancing over to Cliantha. "Alright.. That sounds like a plan then." His gaze turns back to the ones present and offers a slight bow of his head as well. "I certainly hope that we can get the bottome of this and help one another out.. If you have need of us I think you all know how to find us in the plains. Your all welcome to come by to speak with us." With this said he turns to leave, making sure Cliantha follows after him, along with keeping the wolves within his view still.
Niyt smiles as her brother comes to the same enthusiastic conclusion she did, and nods. "I hope so," she says in agreement.
Her ears flick to the voices of the others, as they make their own plans. She frowns slightly; for all that she knows the cougars must be found, she dislikes the delay it will cause. It's a situation with no perfect answer. She only hopes that the one they choose is Good Enough.
As the Cerulean wolves prepare to depart, Wachiwa shifts back to her feet and moves to try and gives Skahla an uneasy, yet gentle nudge at the shoulder with her snout. Then she murmurs, "I feel as if, my fault losing Ikuna, I should be one of those who help retreive him, Skahla, to make sure he is not harmed. " She looks to her Alpha for response.
--- Anoki is happy for only moments, and then it looks like Tariro is departing, and he utters a whine. He doesn't fancy the walk back to Cerulean lands to be anything short of painful, long, and disheartening; after all, what has he got to return to? His mother is gone, his father is .. gone, along with his siblings.. and his uncle and sister seem to be all he has left.
"Unca Tariro," he starts softly, "Do we gotta go back forever? ... There's a lotta nice puppies in the Ute. It'd be fun to visit'em a while longer, wouldn't it?" He asks, softly, though ultimately knows it is up to his uncle and sister what is to be done with him now.
Skahla is not much more for fareweels than he is, recently, for being social in general. He manages to give a bit of a nod to the horses, and other wolves, but other than that, when Wachiwa nudges his shoulder, all he does is turn to begin to walk away, his pace slow enough that the female wolf should have no trouble keeping up with him. "After we talk to the older wolves, to see what we are up against with the cougars, we will talk about it, Chewy." Skahla cannot claim to know much about cougars, and because of what little few experiences he does have, he is wary of this plan.

Cliantha follows Orion. The decision has been made to seek out the cougars for any information they have on the kidnapping of one of their own while she asks her bird-friend to search the mountains. Her gait is heavy as she heads back to the prairie lands, heavy with the foreboding knowledge that what is to come will be treacherous and deadly.
