Call of the Wild

Howling Wolf and Bugling Elk Sing Harmony

Early one morning in Yellowstone, an enormous white wolf crossed the road in front of the car.  From the direction he came another wolf began to howl.  The howling continued for more than an hour.  Here’s a minute of it, accompanied by an elk bugling for a mate.

    What an eerie but at the same time wonderful experience. Wouldn’t have missed that for the world, Monica, such a rare but almost harmonious duet, the call of the wild…

    Beautiful, haunting sounds, Monica – how wonderful to hear these calls in the wild. I understand why you are so desperate to have these amazing creatures protected – it would be just awful to no longer be afforded such a magnificent gift of nature.

    Hi Bluebee, Happy New Year and thank you so much for your comments. I am desperate — that’s a very good word. I wish I knew what the next step could or should be. Very best wishes to you.
