Today we had a very special encounter!
The wolves at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge decided they wanted to get to know the new silver animal that has been roaming the Hudson Bay coast. It’s known to us locals right now as the “Rhino” but we might still be looking for the perfect name.
Two young black wolves got up close and personal with the guests and stuck around long enough for a shot or two with us like-minded animals following the scent of polar bears and snow geese down the beautiful coast line.
The wolves approached with caution, but paused for a few minutes once they realized the big silver guy was friendly. Our guests were in awe of their presence, as were the guides, and the Rhino didn’t seem to mind being in the company of wolves either.
Later in the day the wolves also paid a visit to the Lodge, and we got to enjoy more time with them on the runway through the beautiful 6-foot viewing windows in our newly constructed timber frame dining/viewing lounge. Just another day in paradise…
Glass of wine and warm fire included!
