Kane Lobo Wolves  

 

 

Welcome to the Kane Lobo Wolves Website!

 This site is dedicated to Doctor Edward H. McCleery who saved the last four lobo wolf pups from being exterminated by the United States Biological Survey during the 1920’s.  He prevented a subspecies of the grey wolf, the great plains wolf, (Canis lupus nubilus) from being completely eliminated.  He then cared for them, bred them, and started a thriving tourist attraction in Kane, Pennsylvania to educate people about wolves. 

 

My grandparents and parents took me to see the wolves when I was a toddler.  I still see their faces and hear their howls.  My interest in Doctor McCleery and his wolves is ongoing.  I've written an historical novel that documents some of what I know.  The Wolf Man of Kane, Pennsylvania is available at the following on-line stores:

If you are interested in a signed copy of my book, you may contact me at lonewolffarm@clear.net, send payment of $15.95 and I will mail you a personalized copy.  If you prefer you may use PayPal by clicking on this icon.


I'd love to hear your stories and have you share your documents or photos with me on this site.  If you are willing to share a photo that I don't have in my collection and provide written permission to allow me to post it on this site, I will mail you a FREE copy of my book!  I am always searching for real photos and post cards from Doctor McCleery's wolf pack.  I will also send you a FREE book for any real photo of Rose V. Carroll, Helen McCleery, or Mary Byham McCleery as adults.

Help erect a state historical marker for Doctor McCleery!  We need to   raise $2,000 for the price of the marker and installation for a  state historical marker for Doctor McCleery.  The application has been completed and will be submitted once most of the money is raised.  Be part of history by supporting this marker to be placed on Route 6 nearby where the ruins of his great wolf park once stood.  This project is supported by the Kane Historic Preservation Society.  You can donate funds for the marker by mailing contributions to:  Kane Historic Preservation Society, Kane Depot, 1 South Fraley Street, Kane, PA  16735 or by donating any amount to PayPal towards the marker by clicking here.


Thank you for your support!  Donation tracking updated 5-27-2014.  A huge THANK YOU to the 2013-14 Kane Area Middle School Entrepreneurial Business Elective (KAMS EBE) class who raised $900 of this total for Dr. McCleery's marker and is submitting the application with me!
