Easter Gets Thrown to the Wolves



Ambassador wolves Alawa and Zephyr received some Easter enrichment with a little assist from our Kai the Easter Dog (A member of the Wolf Conservation Center's "staff pack"). Providing "enrichment" stimuli is vital in making our wolves' lives as interesting as possible.


With 42 specialized teeth for slicing, tearing, and grinding, wolves are supremely well-equipped carnivores. A wolf could make short work of a helpless egg, but Atka, an ambassador Arctic gray wolf, instead takes a slower, perhaps even epicurean, approach when presented with an egg as a treat.
