He Lives in Harmony with Wolves [Article in Eugene Register-Guard]


This article reports that Jack and Margie Lynch care for more than 100 wolves on a 40-acre preserve on Washington's Olympic Peninsula. They keep lobo wolves and six other subspecies, and their goals are to save the lobo wolf from extinction, research the wolves, and educate the public about them. The social hierarchy of wolves - alphas to omegas - is explained.

The project has so far cost the Lynches over $200,000 out of pocket. Tourism brings in about $30 on a good day, but meat for the wolves alone costs about $150 every other day. Lynch buys cows and butchers them to feed the wolves.
