The boss of all bosses, the alpha of all the males, the last to speak and the first to be fed. Although we keep all of our wolves in small packs or pairs, it is understood amongst all the residents that Yoli is the leader at LARC. At night, the wolves call out to one another, and once Yoli says “good night”, it is good night. Silence falls upon our valley, the stars shine brighter, and it is quiet until Yoli is fed in the morning. Yoli has a soft place in his heart for one of the youngest, smallest residents at LARC, Virginia the wolf. Yoli and Virginia spend the afternoons in their outdoor habitat, running from bathing bucket to bathing bucket, and greeting the staff with a yip.
