My first encounter with wolves (from a distance) took place in Kristiansand dyrepark (Kristiansand Zoo, Norway), guided by Olav Åsland, their main responsible for keeping the captive wolves. It's a pack of 6 wolves, born in 2002 (alpha male), 2005 (alpha female) and 2008 (the four pups) respectively. They were being fed, with pieces of horse meat. A lot of crows joined in on the eating. After a little time the wolves came running to get hold of a few of the meat pieces, and then ran off to the heights in order to eat undisturbed.
A curious male wolverine, at the other side of the path, had a good look at us, a few meters from the fence.
