What is the behavior of animal mobs in a pack?

Do they tend to stick around the area, or do they migrate? Do some members leave the pack? Or do all of them stick together?

Currently there is no implementation of pack behavior, in either animals or monsters. However, wolves spawn in packs of 1 to 8 http://www.minecraftwiki.net/wiki/Wolf.

They only wander (each animal randomly, not a as a pack) when you are around. Each follows a given KI, which might be interpreted as pack behavior. Animals prefer gras and light. For more information see the following:
