Danish wolves

I must admit, when I think of Denmark, wolves aren’t not something that come to mind. This article, entitled “After a 200-Year Absence, Wild Wolves Return to Denmark” by Jaymi Heimbuch at the Mother Nature Network, lets me know otherwise.

Okay, back to the great lakes region

So I came across this article a few days ago courtesy of the Duluth News Tribune and it’s a  sad story,in large part because of the reason for the decline. The article is entitled “National Park Service wants to bring new wolves to Isle Royale.

I’m happy though that the National Park Service wants to get involved. After all, like so many others animals, wolves are one of my favorites.

It takes two

Reading this article reminded me of another story I read about, the one in the book entitled A Wolf Called Romeo by Nick Jans. While I never finished the book, in part because I know the ending, the story of coyotes overall, has a happier ending.

The article is entitled “The true story of a legendary coyote is coming to Hollywood: Two Toes, the original wiley coyote of the American West, is on the verge of howling on the silver screen at the Mother Nature Network by Michael d’Estries.

Signature howls

I’ve probably  talked about it before but, I remember when we use to go to our cabin up north in Minnesota and we could on occasion hear wolves howling. Little did I know at the time that wolves have individual voices.

This according to the article entitled “You Can Tell Where a Wolf Is by the ‘Shape’ of Its Howl” by over at Science of Us magazine.

Ice age puppies

As I’m sitting here writing this post, I’m suddenly reminded of the movie Ice Age. I have to admit though, when I think of that time period, I think more of wolves than I do dogs.

Anyway, according to the article entitled “Caveman’s best friends? Preserved Ice Age puppies awe scientists” by Maria Antonova over at Phys.org, these dogs or puppies are over twelve thousand years old.

With a little luck, maybe scientist will learn a little more about dogs and their relationship to wolves.

Woof! woof!

Wolves rule

I know I’ve been writing quite a bit on wolves these days but this story is a must. It turns out that the Endangered Wolf Center here in St. Louis was recently able to welcome a pair of red wolves, along with their three pups to the center.

Red Wolves are the only wolves that live here strictly in the United States and once roamed between Texas and Missouri. The article is entitled “Rare red wolves find a new home at the Endangered Wolf Center near Eureka” by Steephen Deere over at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

It’s very cool to know that a local group is helping re-establish them.

Wolf fest

So this weekend the kids and I made it out to Wolf Fest over at the Endangered Wolf Center and I have to say it was very cool. I remember to the only other time I went to see wolves was with a friend of mine and we went to one up in Indiana.

So with wolves in mind, I found this interesting article over at the Mother Nature Network entitled “Tracking British Columbia’s secretive sea wolf” by Jaymi Heimbuch. We got the chance to see both Mexican and Gray wolves this weekend but, we didn’t see (and I’d never heard of) sea wolves. Evolution at it’s finest.

Aaooo!
