Students at the Y.A.L.E. School Cherry Hill campus were treated to a wild time courtesy of the PTO and Howling Woods Farm. Two trained wolf dogs, Samson and Takoda, visited the school during an assembly for Upper School students along with their human handlers from Howling Woods.
Students were able to get up close and personal with the friendly animals and also learned a bit about wolf dog breeding, behavior, and social interactions within the pack. All of the animals at Howling Woods Farm have been rescued after their previous owners surrendered them. However, as students found out, these big canines are more than just cuddly friends—they also have careers as actors! Both Samson and Takoda appeared in the Disney movie The Socerer’s Apprentice.
