Hi all, I suppose I should have introduced myself sooner but I was invited just as the abominable wolf hunts started.
I'm half British, some more Brit, Irish Scottish, Dutch, German and Shinnecoc. So (Dad's side was uptight and Mom's hmmn maybe we won't go there...). Army vet., Nat. Gaurd, too old for all that now although I miss it in many ways.
I've had many jobs/careers and found my place in the multiverse working with animals about 20 years ago. Education, rescue and conservation of endangered species. Absolutely love wolves, although they are the hardest animals I've ever had the privelege of working with. We have a small pack: Amadeus (gifted to us at 3 weeks old - my Mom kept calling him Vulfy - hence Motzart's middle name became him). Wichechala Hopa Shumani Tutanka (beautiful little girl wolf in Souix), to the best of my knowledge Hopa is Ami's sister, we were asked to take her in at eight months old. She was sevely injured but has recovered completely. Hopa is much more a wolf than Ami since she was less socialized than him. We took in two 3 week old Gray wolves that were in need of a home about 6 months ago and with guidence from our friends at Wolf Park now have a very happy pack. We are able to visit in their territory (a small dedicated group of experienced volunteers and staff) 3 or 4 times a week. We don't breed wolves since there are others doing a very good job of it and they are in danger in the wild. More later, off to work. Visit us at www.conservatorscenter.org -D
