“Aye, right enough, Doris. Ah wonder if they ken aboot the hole in the fence?”

Arctic Wolf couple Canis Lupis Arcticus
Parc Omega, Montebello, Quebec, Canada
August 9, 2011

We got to the Arctic Wolf compound very early and asked the two gentlemen working there if we could get out of our cars. They said that it was okay. The wolves seemed to be as interested in us as we were in them. For a while, at least. Then I think the novelty wore off and they got a little bored with us.

Still, it was such a privilege to see them “up close and personal”.
