Wolves Come To Long Branch Library

Long Branch:  Takoda, 8, and Samson 7, two male, 115 pound wolves from Howling Woods Farm in Jackson entered the community room at the Long Branch Public Library on Saturday to the oohs and aahs of 130 guests.

Trainer Mike Hodanish and three other volunteers kept the crowd of mostly kids, “under control” to not frighten the animals. Kelly and her daughter Briana, as well as Kimberli Morris all donate their services at the farm and on tour. As volunteers they "love the job".  

Howling Farm is a preserve where domestically raised wolves live. They have gone through several generation of being out of the wild, and would not survive in that old environment. Often their owners purchase bred pups and are ill equipped and trained to keep them in good care. The farm is part of Federal lands committed to preservation and also a haven for the animals.

During the visit questions were handled and a petting time was allowed for everyone

Visits to the farm are by reservation. For information contact Howling Woods Farm 08527 Jackson, NJ, Phone: (732) 534-5745.
