Running with the Wolves
Wolves: feared by some, hunted by others; loved by many. At Wolfwood Refuge, near Durango, the mission is to provide a safe refuge for unwanted or mistreated wolves and wolf - dogs and to dispel myths surrounding these majestic and oft misunderstood creatures. This is accomplished not only by bringing people to the refuge but bringing the wolves to the people, such as at last weekend's "Meet the Wolves" at 5 Branches Campground at Vallecito. Such events not only help socialize the animals but help people get an up-close and personal understanding of wolves so we can all become part of the pack.
