Miska & a Pumpkin at Sunset
Quantity in Basket: None
As part of managing and handling captive animals, behavior enrichment programs are very important to help alleviate boredom. At Wolf Park we often give the wolves interesting and unusual things to do such as pull treats out of pumpkins for Halloween. It certainly breaks up the monotony of the day to have a pumpkin to tear apart. We sometimes even put things like this up in trees!
To get this photo Miska was busy pawing at an arboreal pumpkin. The background was quite bland, so I merged the photo with a picture I took later in the afternoon of the setting sun. I rarely manipulate my images to this extent, but when I do I always try to let people know I was having fun with PhotoShop :-)
Remember, none of the text you see on the images here will be on your print!
