How close did you ever get to a wolf?

Post by NightlyH » Sat Mar 26, 2011 9:40 am

I have been around for quite a bit now but I am not sure how many people have really ever seen or touched a wolf! I know only a few people who touched the amazing animals but have you ever seen a wolf? If so, how close were you or did you just hear a howl... Either way I think it is amazing to see these creatures up close be not too close to be in danger.

Ok, I have been near a wolf, around 10 feet away from me! I was so close because I went to a zoo <3. Yes I know it sounds un-cool but it was a really fun experience to be so close. I don't remember what zoo it was, but I think it was the New York Zoo ( I don't even know if they have wolves their so please don't comment about that.) We went to the zoo in like 5th grade so I don't remember what kind of wolf it was either but I think it was white! Anyway, it was really cool to see my favorite animal live in front of me SO close!

I chose yes, though it's not exactly correct. My neighbor had a 60% wolf 40% GSD. In my state, anything over 50% wolf is considered a wolf. Sooo I basically hugged and cuddled a wolf about every day :D

WOW, cool! That reminds me. Before I moved to PA I had a black German Shepherd and he was around 65% wolf. The only problem is he almost killed my friend o3o so we had to put him down :cry:

Same as Canidae, I'm always finding myself under a pile of wolves.

I've touched quite a few. Mostly wolf pups at the Gazoos Petting Zoo. But I came pretty close to a wild wolf once. It was on the Knakiska Ski Hill while my friend and I were skiing. We saw 3. At first I thought someone had let this giant big black dog run loose on the ski hill, but then my friend pointed to two other timber looking ones running off into the bushes.

I've touched a few, mostly at our local zoo.
Yellowstone, we aren't allowed to pet/touch the animals. But, there was a black wolf walking by the side of our car.
It was pretty amazing; probably something that won't happen again. ^^"

I've been a few feet away from captive wolves at the Minnesota Zoo and the IWC. In Yellowstone, we hung around at the Slough Creek campsite for a few hours looking for wolves out on the distant ridge. I got to see a white female wolf sitting down and was also the first of the group to spot two black males running down over the ridge. (There were some nice folks who let us take a quick look through their scopes, but I saw the two black wolves as I was scanning with binoculars.) Still pretty far away, but even being in the vicinity of a wild wolf was pretty cool.

And quite interesting that the wolf in Yellowstone came so close to your car, dustydawn!

As the closest zoo to out town is well six hours away from my home i haven't got the best of chance to get close to a wolf. After all theres a bridge over their exibit which is rather high up.
But closest is when i was in Denmark. When i was in a zoo there i saw one that moved under the 'house' i was standing, and one that was relaxing in the long grass.

In my town we have a zoo that rescues hurt animals from the wild and takes care of them. They have a pair of VERY friendly wolfs who like to howl alot.

The zoo hosts a summer camp so I've been very close to these wolfs, like 3 inches.

Another time I was in Colorado and we went to a wolf park to see wolfs.

I've been to the International Wolf Center before. One wolf came up to me and licked me! I say, it was a very exciting experience.

I guess this counts. In school yesterday, they brought a drug dog in that was over 65% wolf! And anything in OA that is over 50% is said to be a wolf. So yea, I just petted a wolf I guess you could say.
