This article reports that Bil Gilbert has earned his third Penney-Missouri Magazine Award. Gilbert's most recent article appears in the same issue and profiles Jack Lynch and his work with buffalo wolves. Gilbert greatly admires Lynch, and this article offers an additional anecdote from Gilbert's day interviewing him. As Lynch and Gilbert were relaxing in Lynch's cabin, one of the wolves got loose and appeared at the window. Lynch believed the wolf was jealous of the visitor, spoke comfortingly to it, told it to return to its pen, and it did so.
