Over the last year Torak has matured into a stunning wolf. He is probably the biggest wolf at the UKWCT and stands at an impressive height when placing his paws on handlers’ shoulders in greeting. He is playful with Mosi, astute around people and not altogether trusting of strangers. Very much like his namesake from the Michelle Paver books ‘Chronicles of Ancient Darkness’, he can be aloof, stand-offish and a little apprehensive of some men. Often on open days he retreats into the wooded area of the enclosure and hides out for the day. We always ensure his privacy by roping off areas so people can’t get the whole way around the enclosure and we provide him with an extra water bucket so he can sneak out for a drink.
