I didn’t see any wolves while I was in Alaska, but I did get to see the sled dog demonstration at Denali National Park. The dogs were originally brought in to pull rangers doing anti-poaching patrols, and during the winters now, they are still used to patrol the back country.
The dogs got really excited to do their job! I wasn’t in the best position to see them pull the sled, but they did it at top speed!
The ones that didn’t get to run still got worked up, and they started making noise as soon as they knew a demonstration was about to happen.
The public got to meet the dogs before the demo.
Some were in runs because they were either in heat or couldn’t stop eating rocks.
But they were all beautiful.
She never left the fence. She stayed in that position so she could be petted for as long as possible.
