I wish you were closer to me so I could visit. Love you guys โค๏ธ
Great eats today at Wolf Park thanks to Roasted, Toasted, and Baked:
Your website says your closed till further notice ?
As photographers, my wife and I visited Wolf park decades ago and loved the place. (Is that red alpha wolf with the yellow eyes still there ?) Ever since then, I have ran across other photographers who have visited there. In fact, the one I met a couple of weeks ago lives only 30 minutes away from you. I just had to write this to say how much we appreciate you being there. (Monte may know/remember us as Richard and Charlotte Wells, from Michigan. Go to my facebook site RICCARDO GUELI. )
Maybe the wolves can join in ๐Ÿ˜Š

Wolf Park Hosts โ€œWolf Packโ€ from Norway
by Pat Goodmann

This past April, Wolf Park was privileged to host three visitors from Langedrag Naturpark in Norway. Langedrag displays several species of native Norwegian wildlife, offers dog sledding experiences, and a farm school where children can learn about farming and living with the land. Tuva Thorson is the owner, her daughter, Marie, works at Langedrag, and Vemund, who oversees their dog sledding program, spent several days with us at Wolf Park.

Langedrag Naturpark has exhibited wolves for decades but has not alwayLangedrag Naturpark Tuva wanted a chance to compare notes with some other facilities in America that specialize in showing and caring for wolves socialized to humans.

Tuva was very interested in how we socialize our wolves since different facilities often have other criteria for their animals. Dr. Klinghammer, when asked for advice, always insisted that both men and women be involved in raising wolf pups so that they would be comfortable with both sexes. This practice is essential if the wolves have a change of caregivers or veterinarians.

When rearing pups, their handlers must consider what sights, sounds, smells, and events they may encounter as adults. Ideally, it would be best if you prepared them by exposing them to these things but do it so that they are not overwhelmed by these experiences.

Tuva knew that training and enrichment could help keep wolves physically and mentally active in human care. She was interested in learning how we did it. Animal caregivers love talking shop both because it is a chance to swap animal stories. No matter how experienced you are, there is always the possibility of picking up some new-to-you helpful information.

Teaching our animals โ€œconsent behaviorsโ€ means they have a way of telling us, โ€œOkay, I will tolerate thisโ€ or โ€œNo, I do not want this procedure. At least not right now.โ€ It is a way of giving animals more control over what we do with them and for them. It results in interactions that are more like civil discussions of a treatment plan between our species and theirs. Tuva, Marie, and Vemund saw Sparrow cooperate with a blood draw. Tuva noticed that when the needle neared her vein, Sparrow looked away. She held still and cooperated, but like humans, she preferred to look away as it happened.

It was a very busy week for our Norwegian visitors and us. We plan to stay in touch in the coming years, adding another strand to the web of human-to-human personalities and interactions as we try to help our fellow humans learn how to coexist with our wolvesโ€™ wild cousins.

Currently, legislation in states like Idaho, Montana, & Wyoming encourages the slaughter of up to 90% of the wolf populations in the region. Hunters in these states are permitted to kill wolves through horrific and inhumane methods including baiting, trapping, choke-hold snares, explosives, and even killing pups and pregnant mothers. Additionally, the Biden Administration has recently signaled that it may side with hunting groups and the NRA in seeking an appeal of the decision that restored federal protections to wolves in 44 states. Join the Campaign, Rewriting Extinction & Safely Endangered in taking action today.

Target Training with Bison
Wolf Park's bison herd is trained to touch their nose to a target stick, a tennis ball attached to a dowel rod, as a voluntary husbandry behavior. When they touch the target they are rewarded with a treat, alfalfa hay or apple chips.
This allows staff to get a closer look at their eyes, nose, ears, horns, torso, and limbs. This handy method allows us to apply seasonal pest treatments in the least stressful way possible.
Staff was working through the fence to work with more of the herd than can generally be accessed from the back of the truck.
