Review for International Wolf Center, Ely, MN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

After hand-feeding an alpha black male wolf, who'd been caught and brought into Mpls, (via a bet) to get him set free back where these two guys found him, I became very interesting in wolf and how wise and sweet they truly are. That's when I got involved in the Int'l Wolf Center online. The information given is very educational, the people very kind and courteous, and the pictures and film (since I'm now in WA) just amazingly beautiful and caring of the very species I worked to get free. The guys who caught him, could not get near the cage they had him in, they had to put a ladder against the top of the cage to feed him. I bet them that within one week I would hand-feed him and while they thought I was nuts, they agreed. I spent everyday talking to him telling him that it wasn't just him who had to trust me, but that I also to trust that he knew where the food ended and the hand began. They told me I didn't have to do so, but wolf and I had something to show them about respect and compassion. He lifted the raw steak off my hand, set it down, came back and licked my hand clean of every bit of blood residue and then he sat down and grinned at them. They took him back the next day to right where they'd found him. Right in the Int'l Wolf Sanctuary territory. I told them about him and they watched for him and his pack, and that's how we began to communicate. If there's a pledge, a petition, a film or a picture they want me to look at (this is 30 years later) they make sure to send it to me via FB. Questions are answered quickly, and they are very open to answering even the silliest of ones as well, without any attitude. I highly recommend this agency for this award as they've been instrumental in making people aware of wolf's true habits and personality and have always answered any question I might have, or any other petitions I might post as well. They are my heroes and I couldn't say anything bad about them, because I've only experienced kindness and respect. Please help them and others learn about wolf and how wondrous a creature wolf truly is. Thank you.
