The Wolf Reserve owner writes about this Criminal Wolf Pack release. Criminal, indeed. It is a well-orchestrated event, with vandals opening both the inside and the outside enclosures, cutting holes for the wolves to escape in a place where staff couldn't observe the actions.
|Two Arctic Wolves – sisters – needed to be to be|
taken in by Aspen Valley from another centre
- or they would be euthanized.
|Zoe Coyote at Aspen Valley|
|A hunter, who had been using Mama bear|
to train dogs how to attack bears,
had her front claws and eyeteeth removed
so she was unable to defend herself.
The history of this wolf pack is interesting. Almost always there is a story. No one want to keep these wild animals if they have any understanding or concern for them. They are wild animals. Aspen Valley's critters all have horribly sad stories, and they reintroduce them to the wild, when possible. These licenced facilities exist on donations. They don't do this for fun, but out of a love of animals.

|Eurasian Lynx, Banshee, used in a movie,|
no longer needed, her new owner couldn't care for her,
they were going to put her down.
Aspen Valley took her in.
