Shadow has gained weight, but we must qualify, the measurement taken today was post deer feeding. Shadow and Malik shared a deer torso and 2 front legs last night. Today's wolf check revealed very little left from a 50 lb feeding. So, theoretically, Shadow may have 8 – 12 lbs of meat in his system. But, considering he was 71 lbs at his last weight 2 weeks ago, and is now 16 lbs heavier, he did gain something, probably around 5 lbs. We know by interacting with him that his body feels less bony. We will continue to feed Shadow as much as he wishes. If anyone's interested in buying Shadow dinner, you can make a donation to the wolf care fund, and please make a note that it's earmarked for Shadow.
