The Doctor's Wolves [Article in The Beaver]


This article describes how Dr. E. H. McCleery became interested in wolves and how he began his wolf pack. The article mentions Dr. McCleery's wolf-feeding practices and his highly successful taming program. At 92 years old, Dr. McCleery is greatly concerned with the future of his wolves, but will not entrust them to a zoo. An assistant named Elmer is mentioned. When the article was written, Dr. McCleery had 18 wolves.

This article also appeared in the October 1960 issue of Alaska Sportsman, the only differences being Dr. McCleery's cited age and the photos. The Beaver article includes photographs of a wolf looking at the viewer with its tongue out, a wolf skull, Dr. McCleery with a wolf, and a headshot of a wolf. The photos were taken by the author.
