Unless… like my mom did this morning, you see one walking by the kitchen window.
This is not the actual wolf we saw. We didn’t have time to grab our camera and I wasn’t about to walk outside to get a closer view. As it was, the wolf was literally 15 feet outside of the window over the kitchen sink. The wolf we saw was scrawny, shedding it’s winter coat, and very hungry looking. The Montana animal book says to keep a close eye on small children and toddlers when wolves have been sighted. Yes thank you…I think I will.
I’m a fan of wildlife sightings and all…elk, moose, deer, eagles, ground squirrels…you know, the non-predatory types. But I’m gonna be honest and say that the idea of sighting a bear on the property, or maybe…a wolf just outside the kitchen window…not on my list of most favorite encounters with wildlife. I think I’m perfectly happy that I was inside the kitchen and not camping out in the teepee.
Off for more adventures now…hopefully these involve more far-off animals, mountains, and rivers.
