ALWAYS cry wolf!

These wolves were rescued by NCWRA, Never Cry Wolf Rescue and Adoption in Sacramento, CA. This agency, which depends upon volunteers and private donations, socializes wolves so that they can be adopted as pets.

Most of their animals were not born in the wild, but were formerly owned by people who expected them to behave like dogs. When they realized that wolves behave like wolves, they turned them loose in the woods. Sadly, wolves who have lived in captivity cannot survive in the wild.

This agency does wonderful work in demonstrating that wolves are not the vicious killers fairy tales would have us believe, but beautiful, loving, loyal and highly intelligent animals.

If you would like to know more about the deep bond that can develop between a wolf and a human, read "One Girl's Wolf" which was posted on my other blog in July. It's about my Grey Wolf, Baby, and me.

They are absolutely beautiful.

I just read the post about Baby. I can't believe anyone would treat an animal that cruelly. You have to be sick in the head to do something like that.

I'm glad she still comes to visit you. :-)

So am I! It's always a great joy to dream of Baby.

Thank you for your kind comments.

I also just read your post about Baby. What a great post and what a magnificent animal! I just can't understand how people mistreat animals that way. Baby was lucky to have been taken in by you.

The wolf photos are really great, too. They're truly noble animals.

I'm so glad you appreciate wolves, too. They are truly magnificent, and I was so lucky to have Baby. I've always thought that she gave more than she got.
