These are photos taken from our webcam of our Wolves on July 20th just before noon. They were rather sluggish from the heat so I put one of their tubs out in front of their den. Normally, I put their tubs right next to the isolation fence but people viewing our webcam wouldn't be able to enjoy them. The reason I put them there is because I can fill them with a hose. If I try to drag a hose through the main enclosure, it would be history in a few short seconds. No, they don't listen very well! I painstakingly carried buckets of water over to the tub from the isolation. So I sincerely hope that someone got to enjoy it. ^,^
I try to put the tubs out for them once a day. It really refreshes them. I've added some regular pictures at the end of this article from a session a few days ago.

No Wolves, no water, short work of that! They truly need a pond.
To watch our webcam, click here. Best viewing times are dinnertime 6:00-7:00pm central time in the summer, early mornings and all evening. You won't see a Wolf during the day unless I entice them out there and it isn't easy. Be patient, keep watching and you'll see them, hopefully sooner than later. Remember it's a large enclosure and the image capture of the webcam is relatively small.
