I just finished reading The Wolf Man Of Kane Pa.I visited Wolf Park in the mid 50's and at the age of 16 or 17 I was amazed at the size of these animals. After all these years I regained an interest in the Wolves Of Kane. After reading the book my questions were answered and realized what a patient and hard working man Dr.McCleery was.I liked this book very much, and would recomend it to any one who has an interest in wolves especialy the ones of Kane Pa. It was very interesting. Good job on this book Nancy.

I am a librarian in Connecticut, and I first learned about Dr. McCleery while writing my senior paper in college about wolves in folklore, around 2006. While discussing the paper on an art community website, one member of the site told me about a man - Dr. McCleery - who used to live in her hometown and who raised a pack of wolves. I researched him a little bit on a whim, and found his work so interesting that I never stopped. I was born well after the wolves left the northeast, but I wish I could have seen them in person. I love to read others' stories about them, and to research them. Visiting Kane to learn more has opened my eyes to the kindness and trust people are capable of - I have never met a more wonderful community. Thank you Nancy for sharing this story!

When my father, Fred L Kelley was a child he lived across the street from Dr. McCleery and his lobo's. Dr. McCleery's daughter was about the same age as my father and they knew each other well. Doctor McCleery's daughter had one of the Lobo's as a pet. In the 1990's my husband and I bought part of the wolf farm. Part of our house's basement had been used as a whelping den for the female wolves. We would find bones of horses and cows which were fed to the wolves on our property. In the sixties I can remember my older brother and his friends going out to farmers fields to shoot groundhogs. They got paid by the farmer, then took the groundhogs out to the wolf farm and got paid there to. For the groundhogs were fed to the wolves.

We had a camp in the area near where the Lobo Wolves were. I remember hearing them at dusk, and falling asleep at night hearing them howling. I also remember my parents taking my younger brother and I to see the wolves. These are very, somehow, bittersweet memories for me, that bring on a strong sense of nostalgia and longing...and something awesome that has been lost...?

My dad used to take me to see the wolves every year. I still have a post card that says Solid Phalanx in Front of Den by The Nicolas Studio, Kane, Pa.
