This recommendation is long overdue. A story that will make you laugh in pure joy and nearly sob as you grieve the hardships faced by the wolves. Really enjoyed it. Listen to Episode 137 of Criminal (Wolf 10) followed by this episode for the perfect tale of love and loss🤎

This is the love story version of the wolves, which were also featured in "Criminal". Honestly the sweetest story about wolves and their families. Also, booooo to the sister-in-law!

I loved this so much. I highly recommend listening to this AFTER the other side of the story: The Wolves, episode 137 of Criminal. For more on the wolves of Yellowstone, I also highly recommend the book American Wolf by Nate Blakeslee. It’s all about a wolf named 0-Six.

@phocks You *have* to listen to it. It’s about momma and papa wolf of same pack - Episode 137: Wolf 10 from Criminal:

A pack of wolves in the Yellowstone National Park loses their father, but a rejected wolf comes and starts playing with the cubs. This is a touching story about an unlikely father and his son. Best listened after "Criminal" Episode 137 "Wolf 10" about the mystery of missing wolf.
