Wolf Pup Hiccups!

Wolves can make a variety of vocalizations. They growl, whimper, whine, bark, huff, howl… Although the wolf’s howl is has been the inspiration for films, essays, poems, etc… we think there is another sound that evokes equal levels of emotion and excitement – a wolf pup’s hiccup!

Eight-week-old gray wolf pup Nikai is the newest adorable addition to the Wolf Conservation Center‘s Ambassador Pack in South Salem, NY! As an Ambassador, Nikai will help WCC wolves Atka, Zephyr, and Alawa open the door to understanding the importance and plight of their wild kin. If you’re unable to hear and see the kiddo in person, please join us here online or on Facebook to follow his growth and adventures. It should be fun (and educational) watching him thrive and become yet another powerful presence in the fight to preserve wolves’ rightful place in the environment.

One Response to Wolf Pup Hiccups!

  1. Neil Ross says:

    I applaud Maggie Howell’s sensitivity and heart in posting these lovely, whimsical moments from Nikai’s life. I have forwarded these to my wildlife conservation chums (those in the raptor community too!) because the uncomplicated youth of this cub reminds us that wolves have well-installed social drives and instincts. Sure, Nikai is being raised in part by humans, but whether wild or domesticated, wolves are among the most intelligent and social animals. Nikai proves this to me with each hiccup, each yawn, with every stretch towards the camera. What a sensational little movie! Please share this with your friends and give, give, give to the Wolf Conservation Center.
