Snuggle up with Wolves

There’s a resort in Norway where guests can play with wolves. The resort is creatively named “Wolf Lodge”—wonder how long it took ‘em to come up with that one?—and it is a part of the larger Polar Park in Narvik. (“Polar Park?” Really? What is it with these Norwegians and their simplistic, obvious names for places? I’m sure they sound a lot cooler in Norwegian—Is that what they speak in Norway? Norwegian? Norse? Nordic?—and it is home to almost half the wolves in the entire country. This sounds really impressive until you realize there are only about thirty wolves in the entire freakin’ country!

The wolves are allowed to roam freely over the grounds of the resort, but guests need not fear attack. These wolves are as domesticated as dogs, or close to it, and they’re more likely to want to play than to hunt down prey. Human prey, anyway. While brain-dead politicians here in America want to hunt wild wolves to extinction, those Norwegians have figured out that “eco tourism” is the cash crop of the environmentally conscious. People will pay good money to spend time with wolves. Wouldn’t it be nice if folks everywhere had that option?
