The wolf pups, at week 20

Big Bear, Ca, October 11, 2010, 8:00am – The Moonridge Animal Park invites you to learn more about wolves on Wolf Awareness Day, Saturday October 16th.  The zoo will have a variety of activities surrounding wolves including crafts, games, and a storytelling of the Real Story of the Three Little Pigs.  There will be some photo opportunities with storybook characters as well.  The zoo will try to dispel some of the misconceptions people have about wolves and let people know how important they are to the environment.  Debra Richardson works with the wolves everyday and says the wolves are “highly intelligent, but of course the pups still act like youngsters and they can be extremely hyper.”  Richardson also added that the wolves pups are “very special to us because we hand raised them from their first day.”  Wolf Awareness day will take place on Saturday October 16th from 11am to 3pm at the Moonridge Animal Park.
