Lakota is doing well, she has not really started to shed yet, but staff are brushing to encourage the process. She is very alert to the activities within the wolf lab and she continues to retain a good sense of sight and hearing, despite reaching the age of 14.
Lakota is having a good season, there's been no indication of the facial growth returning, the growth on her leg has not increased in size in the last several months and she continues to race around the enclosure during staff visits. As you may know, the retired pack turns 15 in April, this is a real milestone for the Center and the wolf care staff.
The International Wolf Center advances the survival of wolf populations by teaching about wolves, their relationship to wildlands and the human role in their future.
