Wolf Hollow

Have you ever seen a wolf up close?

Well, I can tell you they will not respond when summoned and they certainly aren’t looking to wrestle or be nuzzled.  Wolves are nothing like pets and neither should they be treated like domestic animals.  However, they are naturally curious and like other members of their canidae family, they posses a keen sense of hearing and smell.  Often traveling in groups of 6 to 10, some packs have as many as 30 wolves.

Although they may seem fierce, they are not evil in any way.  In history, wolves have been associated with brutality, but they aren’t actually out to harm human beings.  Furthermore, there are very few accounts of wolves brutally attacking humans in history.  They are natural scavengers and can eat up to 20 lbs of meat; their diet consists mainly of elk, cariboo, bison and moose.

Still intrigued?! Check out Wolf Hollow! They are open Saturdays and Sundays (weather permitting) and have an hour presentation starting at 1:30 p.m. and a half-an-hour question and answer session at 3:00 p.m.  Make sure to get their early to purchase tickets.  Also, they prefer if you find a spot in their parking lot instead of parking on the street.

    • Sort of like that – of course these wolves aren’t exactly wild anymore – considering they given plenty or water and food by their caretakers. But same gist…. they have their own personalities, NOT like domesticated dogs at all … although people think they are because they look ‘cute’. Nevertheless, they are pleasant to look at, but they don’t care about people calling their ‘name’ or asking them to sit or stay, they could care less…it’s sort of funny though.
