Sex and the Single Wolf: or, The Mating Habits of Wolves at Wolf Park


Pat Goodmann, of Wolf Park, will be talking about what they have observed over the course of more than thirty years watching wolves around the clock in shifts during their annual late winter breeding season.  More than mating goes on and Pat will talk about some of the problems of working with wolves during this time of year.
