It has been a great winter to be an older wolf.  With nighttime temperatures staying above zero, there isn’t much stress to the body when living outdoors.  Grizzer also has a great appetite which helps keep his calories up and his immune system strong.  He is very good about taking his morning nutritional supplements; all factors are making the winter of 2021 a great winter to be an older wolf.  We are noticing some challenges with Grizzer’s vision and hearing, but he has certainly not let that impact his activity or comfort level moving throughout the three retirement areas.  Denali is an important part of providing that comfort for Grizzer with the many greetings, tail wags and nose to nose greetings that keeps them both up and active.  Their behavior brings many smiles to the faces of wolf care staff and webcam viewers alike.
