Beautiful! I just love wolfs! In schools where doing projects and I'm doing a article wolf and snow leopard!:)
Great picture, beautiful animals.
Kudos to those outstanding people running Wolf Park in Indiana, keep up the good work fellows!
Oh my gosh, what a delightful story. A staff member howled and set the wolves off to howling. I love it and fantastic shot!
Never seen a live wolf,just pictures, always thought it was one of the most beautiful animals in the world.
I have a summer cabin in wolf country,though Ive never seen them just hearing them in the middle of the night gives me the willies,by the my name Rudolph means "son of wolf" yipes
Now thats what I call a howling good portrait ! Congrats:on this great picture, that you have shared with us. I have always enjoyed wolf pictures, 'tho I never have had the chance to be up close with them, worse luck, or maybe thats good luck! They are great animals, thats for sure. j.e.s.
When we do that, it's a sign that our pack is happy and healthy. I remember when a cougar killed the omega of the Sawtooth pack, there was no group howls for months and the individuals who did howl sounded sad.
They love vocalizing and harmonizing together. I love these animals so much and this picture captures them so well. There are wolves where I live but most people are motivated to kill them as if destroying such a powerful predator makes them more of a man.
It feels like the three wolves are standing in an frozen world consisting only of icy nothingness. It is rather mesmerizing, actually.
Nice image, but wolves belong in the wild, not locked up behind a fence in Indiana. They're probably howling from despair. With the exception of caring for injured animals, holding wild animals behind a fence is deplorable. The money and effort would be much better spent teaching people who live in areas that hold wild wolf populations how to live with them instead of the steady push to have them shot on sight.
Beautiful picture ! have had several opportunities to view wolves in the wild and believe them to be so majestic,thanks for sharing this with us,id like to frame this one !
@isaiah wiggins I do agree
@Anthony Carado wolves howl as a form of communication. Stop anthropomorphizing them and assuming they feel human emotions. They do not. They are wolves, not people and while they certainly have emotions, they are not human emotions. You do not understand them. They are not like ours.
You don't know WHY they are in the wildlife facility. Many wolves are in facilities like this because they cannot make it on their own in the wild due to hunters and poachers. You also have no idea of the size of the facility. Some research facilities are thousands of acres. So before you get all high and mighty, do a little research.
