Lakota Wolf Preserve

While staying at Camp Taylor, we learned that right up the hill, are you ready for this, is the Lakota Wolf Preserve. So, of course, we had to check it out.

Wolf Guide:This is our first pack of wolves. These are timber wolves. Timber wolves are anywhere from blond to a black color, lots of different color pelts. The females weigh about 80 to 90 pounds. A lot of us have dogs at home which are well over 100 pounds. Most people think of a wolf, they think of a big massive dog. They’re a very skinny animal.

About 10 wolves in every 100 will be born black. They say they can smell almost a mile away in the woods. That’s all the way back down past the campground.

Wolves, in fact, are so afraid of humans, there’s never been a case of a wolf attacking a human in the United States ever. It’s all from folklore and fairytales.
