Some animals will settle in one place and hardly ever move. Burrowing animals like badgers, for example. Others claim a territory and force others of their kind to move on, sometimes even their own offspring. Wolves are an example of that. Clearly it will take a longer time for these types of animals to fill a new range compared to a wandering animal. Most birds will range far and wide seeking food or a place to build a nest. Horses form a herd and just naturally wander around. These types of animals can cover distance very quickly.
