A wolf-full morning at Nanuk!

Breakfast will have to wait, or…

Not getting through dinner on a regular basis here at Nanuk Polar Bear Lodge has been the norm this season with the black bears and polar bears at the fence, but not getting through breakfast?

A lone wolf turned up on the runway while all the guests were out back with three wolves at the fence. And the rest of the pack has been in the willows howling at us for the last hour.

Nanuk, our regular polar bear visitor, is not so impressed with playing second fiddle to a bunch of yelping and howling mongrels, so he is following guests around trying to get in the shot.

Just another day in…

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!
