Atka didn't know human laws; couldn't even come close to knowing. Therefore he didn't know that it was illegal to hunt on this trail. What he did know was that no human ever took aim at him here, nor had any wolf ever been killed on this property. While perplexed, Atka never questioned it. Especially not in times when he was wandering the land with his pups, showing them where was safe and where wasn't nearly safe enough. Today was a day Mitsuna couldn't watch them, and therefore Atka was more than happy to pick up the slack. He enjoyed spending time with his three youthful children.
"Sura, be careful." His voice was tender, yet filled with a gentle warning. Even as he hated scolding them, he knew he had to teach them the rights and wrongs of living around humans who would sooner shoot them than they would look at them.
The little grey and brown pup nodded towards her father in acknowledgment before she and her other two siblings were bounding down the trail, sniffing everything from the scents of humans--which already invoked fear into their small hearts due to instinct--to the odd scents of dogs. They had never seen either a human or a dog, so their minds could only conjure up what their noses perceived. To them humans were large, scary creatures bigger than bears even. Though Atka knew otherwise.
Without a care in the world since no one seemed to be on the trail this early in the morning, Atka followed after his brood at a lazy pace, a wolf-ish smile on his maw. These crisp, cool mornings with little commotion were hard to come by in the summer, and with that in mind Atka was grateful for the one they had today.
