Boltz has lost much of his winter confidence as summer bug season has arrived. Wolf care staff are working on ways to desensitize him to flying insects – often using flavored bubbles – but in the high temps of the last few weeks it has been a challenge to keep him visible and interacting with the rest of the pack. We started leaving the medical pen open 24 hours a day. This area is well shaded, has a concrete pad that will remain cool and is adjacent to the water hoses and misting system. The Curator has a ring camera that connects to her phone and she can track Boltz’s midnight rendevous in the medical pen.
