What’s for Dinner?
On Saturday night we got to go to the International Wolf Center to see a presentation entitled “What’s for Dinner?”
The center was founded to study the wolf and educate people about wolves. You can visit their website at www.wolf.org.
Right now there are two wolves in the viewing area, Denali and Aidan. There are three wolves in the “retirement” pen. They are in retirement because it is too dangerous for them to remain in the main pen with Denali and Aidan who may challenge them and hurt them. They are going to introduce some new pups in the spring.
The program was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It started off with a powerpoint presentation about wolves, how they hunt, what their prey is, and so on.
But then the excitement started. The keeper brought in a dead deer carcass and dumped in the enclosure and then let the wolves have at it. It was pretty amazing, but not something I watched for a really long time! The wolves were absolutely amazing. They were so beautiful, so big, and so graceful and effortless in their movements.
