Ambassador Wolves from Colorado’s Mission: Wolf sanctuary will make their 4th annual appearance in Southington on Thursday, Oct. 20, for two programs at 6 and 8 p.m.
Kent Weber and Tracy Brooks from Missio: Wolf will present educational programs that offer the public a chance to look into the eyes of a wolf at close range. The information and presentation will focus on the return of wild wolves across the U.S.
Presenters will answer questions and provide educational material regarding the return of wild wolves and captive wolf/wolf-dog cross ownership.
Do wolves eat grandmothers? Do wolf-dog crosses make good pets? Where can wild wolves live again? Was that a wolf in my back yard? What happened to the wolves released in Yellowstone National Park?
If you’ve ever wanted to see live wolves up close, or learn about the plight of this splendid and misunderstood animal, here’s your chance.
Mission: Wolf is bringing ambassador wolf Magpie, Abraham, a wolf/dog cross and Zeab, a gray wolf yearling, along this year!
