Gray Wolf
Location: Wolf Sanctuary, PA
Story: 
Visiting the Wolf Sanctuary of Pennsylvania was an emotional experience. In spite of being well taken care of, it was disheartening to witness such a magnificent ('supposedly wild') animal living in captive, having lost almost all of its natural instincts. Suddenly this particular wolf came close to me and his eyes made contact with mine. They seemed to narrate a story filled with tragedy and at the same time questioned "What made you think I belonged here?". These victims of human exploitation can neither survive in the woods nor be tamed. They spend their remaining days here, waiting for another meat snack to be offered during the next tour.
