This story brought tears to my eyes. The Lockwood Animal Rescue Center in Los Padres National Forest, 90 minutes north of LA, rescues wolves, wolfdogs, coyotes and horses that are about to be destroyed and welcomes them to a new home in Nature. Some animals have never been off chains their entire lives. Then they introduce returning vets to the animals and a process of mutual healing begins. Both wolfdog and returning vet live in a twilight world - - returning to a normal home is hard but living wild means lonliness and eventually, trouble.
39 wolves in Alaska, taken from a roadside display, were on the verge of execution. The good folks at Lockwood are en route to bring all the wolves back and give them a new start. Read about it here.
