I Lost a Friend today…Bo the Wolf

_mg_06311

In a recent blog I introduced you all to my two wolf buddies, Bo and Suzie. Today I drove up to Bo’s broken body lying beside the road and viewed with sadness the passing of a creature whose ancestors once roamed these very ranges less than a century ago. I laid him to rest atop a hill in the badlands overlooking a region where the now extinct Texas buffalo wolf once hunted in untold numbers. Now, beneath a canopy of stars on this autumn night I hope that his spirit is running with the wild ones from another time. I will not forget my Bo, as in the words of the great naturalist Aldo Leopold…” I realized then and have known ever since, that there was something new to me in those eyes-something known only to him and to the mountains”.

Adios my special friend…your buddy, Suzie, misses you greatly…
