Wolves have a bad reputation. All of us have grown up hearing tales of the “Big Bad Wolf” that just wants to blow your house down. Maybe you’ve heard of the wolf that tried to eat Little Red Riding Hood or the boy who cried “wolf.” The point is, wolves have gained a pretty bad rap over the years. We’ve been trained to think animals like turtles and pigs are good, but wolves are just out to get you.
Unsurprisingly, real life is not very similar to the stories we’ve heard in fairy tales. When Danielle encountered a wolf in the snowy forests of Colorado, she didn’t run in fear like those ancient stories would have you believe. Instead, she calmly and confidently approached the beautiful animal. The result was a moment that she and all of us watching would never forget.
The wolf, named Kekoa, actually belongs to the Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. This organization provides a huge sanctuary for these animals to roam free and live in their natural habitat. While we can’t recommend the actions of Danielle in this video, we can at least say that maybe you can begin to change your opinion of these creatures. They don’t all want to blow your house down.
