    I thought we massacred them to extinction, I'm glad to see there are some left, I'm wandering about wolverines, I think we might have totally killed those off. Very cool pictures, they look very healthy!!

    No wolves have survived (especially from sanctuary work like this). There have been several reintroductions in multiple places in the US (wherever there is a standing elk population, like Yellowstone). These have been very controversial though when they travel out of protected areas and interact with cattle ranchers.


    Wolverines still exist too. They are very secretive, and remote so you don't here as much about them. Here's a US FWS link on wolverine status in North America.

    I have a brother Al in Texas who is an avid nature photographer in his spare time, and looks for good reasons to run around the southwest to shoot.

    LOVE the lighting on that first shot - wow! Excellent photos. This is a place I've wanted to visit for a long time now. Did you get to interact with them directly?
