Many people fear wolves. Their howls send shivers down some people’s spines. There are myths that wolves kill livestock and even prey on people. Because of such myths, these cunning canines have been hunted to extinction in many places. Come to the Milwaukee County Zoo for Wolf Awareness Day and learn the truth about these amazing animals. Compete in a howling competition at 1 p.m., with prizes for best adult and child howls. Learn what wolves eat and check out wolf “toys” as zookeepers explain what it takes to keep these animals active and engaged.
