Author Paula Wild’s latest book, Return of the Wolf: Conflict and Coexistence, was published in October 2018 and became a bestseller in British Columbia. She visited Wolf Haven International in 2016, visited the sanctuary and spent time with Wendy Spencer, our director of operations and Erik Wilber, sanctuary director. Here is a blog post about the howls that she heard while here.
At Wolf Haven International, the staff is tasked with taking care of dozens of wolves and other wild canines. Although much of the job is about stayingout of the animal’s way.
“We are simply guests in the animal’s home, and it’s better for wolves to be left alone so that they can live as a wolf,” said Kim Young, the haven’s communications director.
It’s the holiday season, when many of us will be getting together with family and friends. A big part of holiday traditions are the wonderful meals we share. It’s no different for the resident wolves at the sanctuary when they get their own turkey dinners .
