Male Wolf Update

I mentioned in my Christmas Blog post that I spent a bit of time watching the wolves search for food. Some blurry photos of the male wolf, M1803, in his efforts, along with a quick video. Scroll all the way to the bottom so you can see him when he first arrived.       I love this video of M1803 when he first arrived on grounds. Keeper Sarah caught this of him in sloth-mode. His nerves- and speed —Read more

Christmas 2017

So, I’m sweating at 5:30. Last night I set out shorts and sweat pants and a sweatshirt. I know I am always hot with the heat blowing while working indoors, so I set out layers to wear today. Yay for being prepared. Here’s the but… I decided not to wear them — what the heck was I thinking!!

New Wolves settling in

Wolf Physicals (and Transfer) Complete

(Everyone wore gray for this catch… last catch we wore more blue). We learned a lot in September and made appropriate changes in the plan.

Numerous meetings and discussions and equipment checks took placeRead more

Pupdate #22- all grown up and heading out.

When you come to see them make sure you are prepared to see full-grown wolves (just a little skinnier). Take a look at them now (pictures below were taken one month ago on October 7). .Read more
