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 the wolves 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.  My book is available on www.amazon.com, www.Ebay.com, or you can contact me directly through my email at lonewolffarm@verizon.net

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.




The dedication of Dr. McCleery's historical marker took place on Saturday, July 23, 2016 at Route 6 where the original wolf park was located.  It was a great dedication and unveiling followed by a luncheon at the Kane Historic Preservation Society.  Thanks to all who donated, worked toward getting the marker, and attended the celebration.
