Lakota has shed the least so far this spring. Staff continue daily brushing to encourage the wolves to loose their dense undercoat. As the weather gets warmer, it's critical that the older animals keep cool. The sprinkler hose is working well, and Lakota is often on the top of the den boxes getting a mist of water from the hoses. Yesterday, when the wolf curator was cleaning the stock tank in their enclosure, Lakota stole the sponge from the cleaning bucket, and created an intensive defensive lip curl and growl when the curator took the sponge back. Even though they're 13 years old, it doesn't mean they're beyond the point of taking possession of unguarded objects. We seem to remember writing this in the log a year ago when she played tug of war with the garden hose, guess we didn't learn. Wolves are wolves, don't be lulled into a false sense of security that you've known them for 13 years and they won't behave like wolves.
