The only notable issue in the logs the past few weeks, was the bite wound under Lakota's left eye. Staff observe Lakota's exciteable behavior that has her racing around the enclosure, jumping on denboxes and her packmates. Lakota clearly is the only retired wolf that doesn't have joint issues. When this behavior gets a bit to much, MacKenzie and Lucas may put her down. From the scar on her face, someone said enough already, but neither MacKenzie nor Lucas showed aggression toward Lakota during the wolf checks or observation periods. The scar is healing well, but is a reminder of the day to day rank order issues inherent to even a pack of 13 year olds. When we finished wolf care today, Lakota was sleeping in the sun atop a den box, the only wolf that can actually climb on top of a box in the Retired Pack.
