Did you know that lobo wolves once loped through a wolf park in Salisbury Township? They did, but not for long: the Depression seems to have doomed the enterprise.

You can read all about Dr. McCleery’s Lobo Wolf Park at the Dr. McCleery Lobo Wolves Digital Archive (bit.ly/McCleeryWolves). This information has been assembled by Kirsten Canfield, a librarian in Denver, Colorado.

 

Dr. E.H. McCleery established a successful wolf farm near Kane, in northwestern Pennsylvania, 10 years before opening a second operation along the Lincoln Highway, two miles east of Gap, in the spring of 1930.
