Dr. McCleery Lobo Wolves Digital Archive

From the Den of the Great Custer Wolf [Postcard]

Description

This photograph depicts two wolves (presumably offspring of the famous outlaw wolf named "The Custer Wolf") in a pen at Dr. McCleery's lobo wolf park, located along Route 6 five miles east of Kane, PA (although little of this pen is visible, another photo which is clearly from the Route 6 location shows the same pen layout). Another wolf is visible in a neighboring pen. This is a postcard. The caption on the front of the card reads, "-From the Den of the Great Custer Wolf- ©." I believe this photo was taken by A. A. Nicolas due to the caption style and handwritten copyright symbol.

This photograph was taken between 1929 (when Dr. McCleery moved the wolf park to the Route 6 location) and 1949 (when A. A. Nicolas passed away).
