Wolf Dance by sugarpoultry Wolf Dance by sugarpoultry
:star:NEW EDIT: I almost forgot, I have a video of these two in action! Click here: [link]

EDIT: This man is not me, obviously. These are shots of a wolf sanctuary worker playing with Denali.


This was last summer vising Wolf Mountain Sanctuary, in Lucerne Valley, CA. Its an amazing establishment where you get the rare opportunity to go inside and interact with the wolves face to face!

___________

This one just needed a different title and more frames to show the awesomeness. I've never seen a closer bond between wolf and man. ;)

At the time this photo was taken, this wolf was a puppy of 1 year. Amazing to see just how big they are by 1 year of age!

Read here to know about Denali (the wolf) and Michael's story: [link]

I love wolves! (as you may have guessed by my profile pic xD)
This is so cool! And wow this wolf is so big already! I thought my German Shepherd was big (well, he is, just not quite as big as this wolf)

Thank you for showing us a cute picture of a wolf.  They are magnificent creatures over-vilified in our culture.

such a beautiful wolf. i have always loved them, their eyes are so intense on whatever they're looking at.
like i mentioned a while back, how i want to work with and study wolves, i'll be attending college for the start of my pre-req courses, then transferring after two years to a university for a Wildlife Management major. im looking at about 4-6 years of college. i look forward to visiting you all at the sanctuary sometime in the near future. i never got a chance to while i was in the service in San Diego, but now that im out, i'll attempt to make a trip out there.
best luck to you all,
*wolfmotes

I just knew there were going to be references to "Dances with Wolves."
I think everybody would've gotten that whim.

Great shots! :D
