View Full Version : More Wolves

07-01-2011, 03:16 PM
Recently I went looking for wolves in the wild. I didn't have much luck and ended up going to a wolf wildlife center to photograph the captive wolves. In that 5 day trip I traveled over 2200 kilometers. When I got back my brother told me about some captive wolves 10 minutes away from my home. Well I finally had the chance to checkout the wolves that live so close. They had three wolves living there and the best part was it didn't cost anything to see them.

As you can see they were loosing their winter coats.

Now that I know they are there, I'm sure I'll go back to see them again and again. It's a bit like cheating but as I see it, it's good practice for the wild ones.

excellent shots of some gorgeous animals. the shedding reminds me of the Siberian husky we had when I was a kid. come spring there'd be fluffy hanks of her fur caught all over the place. in bushes, the grass, in the garden. birds loved the stuff for their nests.
