It’s Wednesday, so we heard a story from Kane’s history at the Depot tonight! A few of you asked to hear stories about the Lobo wolves, which were saved by Dr. McCleery right here in Kane, so that’s tonight’s history story topic.
Dr. McCleery started having wolves sent to him by train and he would pick them up right at the Depot where we were tonight. They stayed in his backyard, by the edge of Evergreen Park, with about 40 wolves as the most he had there at one time! Then he moved them out to land on Rt. 6 going toward Lantz Corners.
It’s amazing how many people have lived in Kane- from our founders to Dr. McCleery and many more- who were driven by passion to help those who needed people to speak up and fight on their behalf, including these special wolves.
Watch Dick Bly tell the stories of the beginnings to how so many people came to see the wolves and where they are now.
Stop by the McCleery Center, located in the Depot, to see all of the incredible pieces to this story. Here are a few pics:
