In Red Lodge, Montana, this group lived very differently to Luther's. They live off cattle, not humans. It's not something they enjoy, but they do it for survival. Even when Sam's blood is dripped into Lenore's face, she managed to control her hunger enough to retract her fangs. Despite being hunted by Gordon Walker, most of the group survived and moved somewhere new. They have a tentative agreement with the Winchesters.
