There’s Only 1 Place You’re Guaranteed to See Wolves in Missouri
There are many in Missouri that claim to have seen wolves. It does happen although many times it's a case of mistaken identity with coyotes. However, there is one place (and only one) in Missouri where you are guaranteed to see these fascinating animals.
Over the years, there have been 432 wolf pups born in this Missouri location. No, it's not the wilds of the Mark Twain National Forest in Missouri. It's the Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Missouri. There was a nice feature done on this special Missouri place recently by Only In Your State.
Did you know that the gray wolf used to thrive in Missouri and there are many that believe it could and should happen again? The Endangered Wolf Center seems to believe that also as they mention on their website that wolves are apex predators and their presence in an ecosystem can help balance everything else out. As there is a growing concern about the increasing number of bears in Missouri, wolf packs are a valid rival to keep the bears from taking over.
The Endangered Wolf Center in Eureka, Missouri says they've had well over 600,000 visitors come see their wolves as they prepare to celebrate their 50th anniversary in the St. Louis area. They remain the one and only place you are guaranteed to see wolves.
