Meet the Dads
- Sam (M1784) - Red wolf Sam is an experienced father who's mastered the art of keeping his family united during challenging times. Now parenting on his own following the passing of his mate Veronica in 2021, Sam has shown resilience and courage. He’s a loving and attentive father to his five adult children who still reside “at home.”
- Lighthawk (M1564) - This handsome Mexican gray wolf is the youngest father at the WCC but he's also one of the most experienced; Lighthawk and his mate, Trumpet, welcomed three pups in 2018, five pups in 2019, three pups in 2022, and six pups in 2023. And boy, can little pups be exhausting! Luckily, Lighthawk is patient, caring, and devoted to his family. Enjoy a brief glimpse into his daily life.
- Rhett (M1133) - Mexican gray wolf Rhett is proof that with age comes wisdom. He has helped raise six kids and is skillfully teaching them how to be great wild wolves: stay out of sight, be cautious, and always be wild.
