Meute. Formerly: uprising, sedition, military operation (=émeute). From this: hunting expedition, and finally, pack of hunting dogs… from movere, put in motion.
The initial sense of movement is preserved in the derivatives
mutin… and meuter, mobilize, excite. From the French come the German words Meute, pack, Meuter, rebel, Meuterei, mutiny.
