Today I went with friends to view the wolves at Wolf Creek Habitat in Brookville, Indiana. Upon arriving I was greeted with a hug from Kathy who is one of the caregivers for the wolves. I explained the project to Kathy and she accepted the $10 and walked right over to the donation box with it.
Kathy was kind and passionate about educating people old and young about wolves. They have a couple of packs of wolves that were either rescued or have been breed at the center. We got to go in the area of two different packs.
One pack was still young about 8 months old and was bottle feed by human since they were ten days old. They were not afraid of people and would come up to you. The other pack was not bottle fed and they stayed further away but were still beautiful to watch. At one time the habitat had a few rescue wolves that were bred with malamutes. Kathy recommended staying away from these breeds as she feels you get the worst of each breed and they are not ideal pets like some think.
The habitat gets their feeding meat from a butcher that processes deer meat. This benefits both the habitat and the butcher since the butcher normally would have to pay to dispose the carcass and the habitat gets free food.
