This weekend, a small group of students from my school headed over to Lakota Wolf Preserve to see and take pictures of the wolves, bobcats, and foxes. It's a bit of an uphill walk from the parking lot to get to the preserve, but the experience is so worth it. Seeing animals with such an aggressive stigma in such an up-close and intimate setting is fascinating. Contrary to folklore, wolves are not naturally aggressive towards humans. In fact, just like house pets, the wolves were beyond excited to receive treats and pats from the preserve owners. Taking pictures was challenging due to the fences in between us and the animals, but they proved to be worth the extra effort. The preserve not only does good by rescuing these animals and providing them with the most natural life they can while in captivity, but also by allowing others to see and experience these animals in a setting so special.
