we have wild wolves on the island (endangered subspecies, of course; *sigh*; about 150), but i've never seen nor heard one. from what i understand they are very shy, live mostly on the west side and in the northern forests, and we don't go there often enough.

Many generations of humans shooting wolves have selected for a lot of shyness. It takes either a lot of dedication or a lot of luck to see one in the wild, and if you did, it would be a mile away and running from you.
Wolf Park is a wonderful place, because they have learned the art of raising wolves so that they can act like wolves but accept humans as part of their environment.
