Wolves in September 2017
The Wolves are all healthy. They are still pretty melancholy. I can’t say that I blame them, I am too. It’s so hard without Chito. She was so “big” in every way. They still haven’t howled since she left. Now that the weather is cooling off a bit I may press the issue and start howling to them. I didn’t want to upset them. Howling was one of Chito’s fortes. I’ve noticed that they have stopped lying on the spot where she passed away. We had some heavy rains from the hurricanes and it was right after that that they moved out of that spot. I’m sure the scent was washed away.
On a more positive note, Niko Akni is once again starting to come and greet me on a regular basis when I enter the enclosure. He is enjoying his belly and back rubs. Wa-ta-chee will sneak up and give me some chicken kisses, too. Woha is obsessed with a wasp sting I have on my ankle and tries to scent roll on it every day. Ohoyo is being so sweet. She greets me every day when I come in by getting up and walking over to the gate. I start petting and talking to her and that is when Ms. Thang, Woha decides to come and harass her. So little by little we will all heal. Right now we are looking forward to some cooler temperatures. Howls!
