From Yellowstone, Kathie Lynch finally has some new news about injured Druid 302M and injured Agate alpha male 113M as well. I know folks have been checking this web page for news. Here it is:
Druid 302M was seen today (Feb. 22)! Despite his rear leg injury, he was able to move at a run and was within a mile of the rest of the Druid Peak pack. Darkness fell before we could see a reunion, but the small group of wolf watchers awaiting his return was thrilled just to be able to see his tracks (and they were big!) in the snow.
And, here’s some good news for fans of Agate 113M too! On Feb. 21 he was with the rest of the Agate pack, looking happy and as healthy as an almost 10-year-old wolf with an injured left rear leg can look. He was able to run without a limp and keep up with the rest of the pack. His pups mobbed him joyfully with wagging tails all around; his former mate, 472F, trotted next to him; and, his son, acting alpha 383M, stood faithfully by his side.
Every image of these two noble old-timers will be etched in my memory forever.
