  1. Good question, AIR. Atka is our only amoabsadsr wolf who travels. Apache, Lukas and Kaila are great amoabsadsrs at the WCC, but under no circumstances will they walk on a leash, ride in a van and go somewhere with so many new faces, sights and smells. Because Atka travels, he is our best teaching wolf and he is also our strangest wolf. His behavior is not typical for a socialized wolf, Atka is unique.

  2. We are sick of all of you elected officials in Pennsylvania Do US all a Favor and Resign
