There is an interesting wolf sanctuary in Washington, D.C., where you can pet them without any fear. It’s been around since 1998, and people have been waiting in line for months to interact with these majestic animals!
The history of wolves on our planet begins over 300,000 years ago. Even our domestic dogs are descended from wolves. For example, as scientists have proven, the Mexican wolf is a relative of the Chihuahua. We admire and respect wolves, but in any case, they are predators, so it is dangerous to interact with them. But not in this sanctuary.
The Predators Of The Heart sanctuary is located in Anacortes, Washington, USA. It is home to dozens of friendly and affectionate wolves, which can be interacted with by any visitor. The wolves can be stroked, photographed and played with and cuddled.
Why are they so friendly here? Most of these wolves came to the reserve when they were still small, were left without their mother or were rescued from trouble and brought out. The wolves grew up around people, so they consider them their friends. Since the existence of the reserve in 1998 there hasn’t been a single critical incident involving humans.
The local wolves live like kings – they are sensitively cared for and their space is respected. For example, meetings with visitors are scheduled a maximum of two times a day, so the wolves have time to rest from socialization. According to the staff, the wolves love receiving guests, and are happy to spend time with them and allow themselves to be stroked.
