Dr. McCleery Lobo Wolves Digital Archive

The Real Thing: Lobo Portrait [Article in Kane Republican]


This article describes how much more magnificent the lobo wolves of Kane are compared to dogs passed as wolves in the movies and on TV, and describes a few of the wolves' individual habits. It reports that Jack Lynch plans to move the wolves to the west coast next month but plans to retain the property along Route 6. The article mentions that Dr. McCleery and a group of local men once established a wolf park near Coatesville, but that it flopped.

I believe this is an article from the Kane Republican, but I am not completely sure. It was in a box at the Kane Depot with a date but not a source. I need to confirm the source and the page numbers and then I will add the partial text.
