Wolves and Bears.

This is probably a very stupid question, but my brain is totally stuck.

I'm looking for words like ram, ewe, lamb or bull, cow, calf for wolves and bears.

Would the female wolf be a bitch, like a female dog? Is cub or pup better for the young? And I have no idea what to call a male (though I'm sure I'll go "DUH" if there's an obvious answer I've just blanked out on)

For bears, I know young are cubs, but what about male and female adults?

It isn't a huge deal. I just have a character who separates people into groups by wolf/bear/bird associations, and wanted terms for him to use.
