Syracuse (WSYR-TV) - A new exhibit this year called 'Wolves of the World' at the New York State Fair features the only traveling wolf pack in the nation.
will see wolves doing natural behaviors, and doing things they want to
do," says Michael Sandlofer, co-owner of the exhibit. "If everybody
could understand how the pack of wolves work, to see the love, the
respect, they have for another, wolves don't need our confidence -- they
may look like a dog but they're not dogs. They respect each other and
the job they do in the pack."
Co-owners Michael and Sharon
Sandlofer have rescued all of their wolves from illegal fur farms that
raise wolves for two years and kill them, or illegal breeders who want
to get rid of their wolves.
The Sandlofer's have 16 wolves. Most
recently, they rescued a 10-week-old wolf named Lobo, from a breeder in
Virginia. Children can take their photo with Lobo for $10-dollars at
the NYS Fair.
