Within lies a savage beast.

A creation of God welcomed at the Holy Feast.

And those without dignity.

It is the love of God that created me

Yet, others cannot see

The Lord’s presence within me.

The Brookfield Zoo is one of approximately forty facilities participating in programs designed to help the Mexican Wolf grow in numbers and flourish. The wolf in the photo is female. After only an hour or so I could tell she was very submissive and often harassed by her siblings.
