Do you want to howl at the night sky like a wolf? If so, come to the Milwaukee County Zoo for Wolf Awareness Day. You'll learn wolf facts during zookeeper talks. For example, genetic studies have determined that the wolf is the ancestor of all modern dogs. A howling competition at 1 p.m., with prizes for best adult and child howls, will have you barking at the moon. Learn what wolves eat and check out wolf "toys" as zookeepers explain what it takes to keep these animals active and engaged.
