Will Ship Wolf Pup to South America [Article in Kane Republican]


This article reports that Dr. E. H. McCleery has sold a four-month-old wolf pup to Dr. R. Duque Strada (which may be a misspelling of Estrada) of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dr. McCleery has sold wolves to people in England, northern Canada, and California before, but this is his first sale to South America. He has sold 21 pups this year.

The pup will be shipped by train to New York, where it will then depart by steamboat to Rio de Janeiro.

Partial Text

One of the wolf pups at the McCleery wolf farm will start on a large journey soon - at least a couple of thousand miles, or to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dr. R. Duque strada, physician of the South American metropolis, has ordered immediate delivery of a four months old pup.

Dr. McCleery believes that the Brazilian physician learned of the wolf pack here through the movies as he has not advertised the pups in any South American publications.
