On November 8 the seventh graders took a trip to Wolf Hollow in Ipswich, MA. This place was started by Mr. Zee, our very own art teacher’s father. After Mr. Zee’s dad passed away Mr. Zee took on the wolves. Currently they have “6 and a half” wolves in the sanctuary, one of them is half wolf half dog, that’s why it's “6 and a half.” Their names are Arrow, Grendel, Neveah, Bear, Argus, Linnea and Osa. Bear is the hybrid between the wolf and a dog, he was to be euthanized because it is illegal to keep a crossbreed between a dog and a wolf but thanks to Wolf Hollow he was saved.
We all know that Mr. Zee’s passion is all about art, he is brilliant at it and he loves it. But his other passion is working with the wolves at Wolf Hollow.
The wolves were not trained obviously, because as Mr. Zee told us, that if they tried to train them and tell them what to do they would try and start to challenge the humans that they worked with. Mr. Zee is very proud of what Wolf Hollow has become and it’s all about LET’S SAVE THE WOLVES! There was a point in time when people in America were completely wiping out the wolves killing them on purpose and setting traps. I at least thought that was absolutely horrific that’s why Wolf Hollow is trying to bring back these majestic creatures.
We had a great time at Wolf Hollow, we learned a lot about wolves and their lives. The link to Wolf Hollow’s website is down below, anyone who is interested should totally check it out! Also the down below is a picture of Argus.
